    I don't - but as you indicate, it is a pervasive notion.

    It may be that I have a Selfix personality...

    I just missed one on eBay.

    The Ross Xpres lens is not coated, but it is immaculate. In spite of its lack of coating I expect that it will prove to be well color corrected. I will be taking some color and B&W pictures and we will see.

    The Compur shutter is rim set and operates correctly, even at the low speeds.

    The coupled rangefinder is working properly.

    I prefer the way this camera handles and operates in comparison to my Bessa II.

    I will take a few pictures of the camera and post them.
    I just can't wait to see them! You're excused to use a digital camera for the mugs shots of the Carbine - if it gets them up here faster, I don't care....

    Did you have to bleed a lot to buy it?

    perhaps we should start our own little 6x9 folder community? Or are we more speaking self(ix)-help programme?

    We have cured ourselves from these by buying 6x9 SLR's instead - and now we're looking for a cure for those too! What d'ya think, is moving up to 4x5 view camera's gonna help?

    BTW: everything allright with the Ansco?

    My wife believes that I am a hopeless addict and have been beyond help for years - on the other hand, I know I can give up 6x9s any time I want to!

    It certainly could not hurt. In fact 5x7s and 8x10s are even better!

    Yes! My $29.00 opening bid got it!

    Congratulations!

    Of course 8x10 is better, but the hassle with sheet film is withholding us so far - good for us, eh?

    Although three of four doctors recommend Selfix, I'm not passionate about my 820. It does fit in a large pocket, unlike my little Graphics, which require an enormous one, but it doesn't shoot as well as they do or do as much. And, much to my astonishment, it has a short gate. 78 mm, IIRC.

    Cheers,

    Dan

    Heh. Reminds me of the doctors of the early 20th century, heralding the wonderful new cure for morphine addiction: heroin.

    Thanks, I'll stick with my folders. I've got three 6x9 now, a Moskva-5 (w/ 6x6 mask), a Wirgin Auta 6.3 (w/ 6x4.5 mask), and a Voigtlander Rollfilmkamera. Total investment to date for all three: about $120, plus a few hours work overhauling a shutter that was traded, with lens, for one of them. Then of course there are the 6x6 -- a Speedex 4.5 with persistent bellows leaks, and my second Speedex Jr. (the first suffered a broken door latch and seems to have failed to make the move from Seattle to here). And a 35 mm folder, as well, a pre-War Balda Jubilette (currently shelved pending me doing something useful to the film stop, which is currently not very reliable). Oh, and I guess I should count the three (two functional, one with very, very bad bellows) 9x12 cm plate cameras.

    No, no heroin, thanks, I've had plenty of morphine already.
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    I had a Zeiss-Nettar (515/2) that I got cheap and repaired with help from a lot of people, Donald Qualls among those
    The bellows is the hardest part to get in good shpae in those

    Gave it away to my father in law.

    The lens (novar) was very decent, nice image quality and had that non-coated look that is so cool for portraits. I could only shoot 10 or 12 rolls with it.
    Mama took my APX away.....

    I bought a belfoca 6X9 folder, and have had good results. The cost was $100. I cannot distinguish the quality from an Ebony 23S for scenes not needing movements. It requires estimating distances, and close attention to using the "siting device" for framing. It is very compact, and spaces shots on the film better than the Hassy 501 CM I also use.
