    eBay find

    Just received this little gem.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=200487192195

    It's in marvelous condition with everything working, sound bellows and clean
    glass. A nicely built little 645 folder with 4-glass lens.

    I envy you, and I have a lot of cool cameras so that is saying a lot. Did it come with that film in it, and if so do you plan to see if you can process it? It looks like C-22 film, but I believe you can cross process that can't you?

    That looks like it will make a great "pocket" camera for vacation shooting, enjoy it.

    Yes, it's C-22 film. Not sure what I'll do with it. I may play with color cross
    processing at some point but I mostly just do B&W so I don't have the color
    chemistry on hand.

    I'll try to get a roll shot in the next few days and post my results. I am
    expecting it to be comparable to a Tessar but we'll see.

    There is one oddity -- the shutter release is on the left side but in playing with it
    that doesn't really seem like much of an issue. I would probably shoot it in
    landscape orientation mostly anyway which requires turning the camera on its end
    so that shouldn't make much difference.

    I also dug up a Rondo rangefinder I had which seems to fit it perfectly:

    You are really making me want one of these, my wife is a lefty, and a left handed camera would have huge WAF because she would not have to fight with it.

    The shutter is on the correct side. Just like the Hasselblad V series is held in the left hand, adjusted and focused with the right. The Exacta had the same proper setup. At least three companies knew how to design a camera properly. Remember that only left handed people are in their right mind.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
