Heck, I'd say yeah sure why not, but, I think analog would assume the vintage years, and the old new, being, just that! Hey, are you not from that other place too? Don't you recall me, mr. Rebel aka a.rodriguezpix falesly accused of hooliganism xD

Holy 8X10 camera man! Its cool, I was a small enity there, and by hooliganism, I meant I spoke in my own defense, when a few bored folks, with tht almighty high feedback, decided to rant and rave, and eventually reported me to mr Fred himself. after a few warnings, and my inability to accept the accused malice, mr miranda decided to take action, and permanently fix me. xD ahh, if only mr. imagemaster palyed fair xD

I just got a Rollei 35 today, and last night I brought a Graflex Graphic 35 back from the dead. Both are loaded, and I've been playing with them all day.

Bought a strange combination yesterday. A Canon FDn 35-70 / f2.8-3.5 zoom attached to a T50 body.
For $35 I reckon the T50 was just there as a rear lens cap. The lens is cosmetically and optically very clean
but it has a little wobbling looseness in the lens barrel. I'll have to find someone to rectify this.

Today I bought a 20mm f/2.8 AIS lens for my Nikon FM2n.

Pre-War black Voigtlander Bessa range finder. Seems to work quite nicely...

I bought this camera some weeks ago (pic on the right)
I repaired it because it was not in good condition. I replaced the torn bellows by less used and changed the dry second curtain which makes the shutter inoperative. The picture on the left shows it after ; it's seen with a 6 X 6 Semflex TLR.
It has a focal plane shutter with 2 curtains. There are 10 speeds (and T) with 3 tensions, with a flash synchro. A lever or a pistol grip (not shown on the left picture) activates it.
The mirror can be lifted more or less quickly with a tension knob. If the mirror is not up, it's not possible to take photos.
Back is RB (revolving back) for plates, and format 9 X 12 cm.
The lens is an enormous 300 mm f4,5 Boyer Saphir, with interchangeable front, and tilt only (with threaded stem on the side).
The finder is not a prism, but a succession of 3 mirrors.
The inside is mechanically very complicated and happily in working order.
It's 1 meter long and weighs nearly 10 kg.
It's a french camera ; the name is "Stud" (Paris). It is difficult to know much about it because nobody here has seen one before.
I suppose it was made between 1935 and 1950...
