    It could be interesting to know what the difference is between a Skopar and a Tessar......the Skopar is always said to be a kind of Tessar design.....

    Bessa Voigtländer RF 6x9

This has been several months of trial and error with various brands and speeds of B&W and color. Finally, it has come together! I use the Voightlander meter that I mounted on my 1955 Leica M3 to set aperture, put the shutter speed at 1/50 or thereabouts, mount the camera on a tripod with a cable release and I'm good to go. Shot a roll at the antique auto club runaround last Wednesday and always had someone looking over my shoulder watching the old guy with his old camera!
    Hi,

    I found this thread after having develop my first roll from a Bessa Voigtländer RF 6x9 - probably similar to yours, with a helomar lens. I have not grinned yet - the out of focus areas are beatiful, but I do not see very much sharpness anywhere. Maybe I am doing some wrong, such as handholding. My camera lacks a cable release, it only has a lever on the lid, which probably does not help. I so much would like this camera to be sharp! Do you have any advice?

    thanks!

    Erik , I suggest you take it back to the repairer, their work is usually guaranteed, explain the problem to him, show him the pictures, and let him see if he can solve the problem.

    Ben,
    I could of course call him, allthough I am quite sure that he would charge me more for it. The deal was that he should repair some defined problems, not "fix the camera" or similar. Still the repairman sold a T-max 100 to just because he regarded the lens to have very good resolution. I should probably call him.
