    I agree with revdocjim - "wub" at first sight!

    For me, it's an Art Deco Rolleicord. I'm still looking for a clean example that's 100% functional.

    What about the Hasselblad EL? Having gone to the moon makes that model camera interesting and the moon camera specifically quite cool.

    Alternately very cool and very hot. The moon camera(s) are still on the moon. If you insist on coolness being equated with having been on the moon or not, then men are cooler than women, no woman having stood on the moon.

    I define cool as neat, has the wow factor, draws attention, etc.. Plastic does not make the cut. The choice has to be a classic & therefore a mechanical wonder. My vote is for the Rolleifex TLR. So refined dressed out in a simple black cocktail dress.

    I've gone back in time getting a 6x9 Ensign Speed Film Reflex with the fastest lens it was sold with a 4" f3.4 Aldis Butcher. I need to replace the shutter curtains and then . . . . . . . start shooting.

    Will post some photos in a day or two in a seperate thread.

    Ian,

    how's the other projects going - the one with the new-made mirror (Thornton-Pickard?) - you seem to have gotten into the restoration business.

    My restorations go in fits and starts at the moment depending on time constraints and demands at home (I'm my mothers carer as she has dementia plus getting my house restorations finished to sell it).

    Apart from the TP Ruby Reflex I have 5 TP (or similar) roller blind shutters in bits needing new shutter curtains then re-assembly, I've french polished the cases just need to clean the brasswork etc as well. On top of that I'm doing odd restoration jobs for others inc parts for a US restorer like a 6'x8" shutter curtain for a RB Reflex Graflex, bellows and screens etc.
