    RB Graphic

    I've lately been taken with Graflex RB cameras and now have three, in all the sizes up to the 4x5, my latest addition. The 4x5 has a petzval projection lens on it at the moment. I got tired of the way the very short DOF of this lens would screw me up when I had to exchange the GG for the holder on the Speed. With the RB, I just compose and shoot. I now have to rig a sort of harness for these beasts that lets me carry some of the weight on my shoulders–– my arms are getting tired. I imagine the old-time sports photographers (let alone Dorothea Lange) developed some serious arms carrying the 5x7 around (before the advent of the "Big Bertha").

    Picked up a Pentax K1000 with 50mm f2.0 at the thrift shop. Figured it would be good to have as a bummin around camera. With a light seal replacement from Mr. Goodman it is running 100%.

    Just bought a 1983 Canon AF35ml in excellent condition with a very nice strap for $1.73 at our local Goodwill Outlet. Purchased a roll of b/w film today to give the camera a tryout, but the expert at Dury's Photography Supplies here in Nashville thought that everything looked great and seemed to work just fine. Can anyone suggest where I might obtain a lens cap for this model (I think it takes a 48mm size)?

    When I managed to attach the lens an Ensign Selfix 420 with an extremely rare (as in there's nothing known) 107mm f3.8 Ensar lens (uncoated) which is clearly a precursor to the coated 105mm f3.8 Xpres of the Selfix 820 (it's identical except for the marked FL and lack of coating). The camera body and lens were bought separately, total cost about £10/$15.50. The lens came with shims and I'll check the Infinity focus and adjust if needed.

    The Selfix 420 body can be used 6x9 or 6x6, and is itself a forerunner to the 820.

    EX+ Nikkormat FT2 just arrived yesterday from KEH. I would rate it EX though. The leatherette is noticeably re-glued in a few places and it seems the mirror lock-up lever won't move. Otherwise it seems to be in good shape. The meter appears accurate although the meter will quit responding at any combination of ISO, shutter speed, and aperture equal to ISO 50, 1 second, and f/1.4 or greater exposure. KEH is dropping the ball. This is the third body EX+ or EX body that has been sub-par where there were operational issues not mentioned in the description. I'll keep this one because it was only $49.00, I'm tired of shipping stuff back to them, and the issues it has won't affect my shooting.

    Edit: I just read in the manual that the meter is good for EV3 to EV17 and it states EV3 ~ f/1.4, 1/4 second at ISO 100. That is equal to my lowest setting that gives me a meter response. One stop lower and the meter quits responding so I guess there is no problem..... with the meter..... It's working as designed.
