    Kallo 35 rangefinder & Retina II automatic

    I got me an old Kowa Kallo 35 rangefinder (with case) in good working order and a Kodak Retina II automatic.
    I don't trust the shutter of the Retina (will test). The small nameplate is also missing (right above lens).
    The set was $30 along with some other junk.

    I don't know much about the Kolla rangefinder (from Japan, 1950's) so I posted a thread in the Rangefinder section. See:
    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum65/1...-any-good.html

    No luck yet, so if you can tell me something about this camera I would be grateful.
    Thanks,
    Bert from Holland

    Nikon N90s

    Hello, anyone, this is my first post to the Group.

    With a fridge full of 35mm film that hasn't been touched in seven years sitting in my basement, and the prospects of a reasonably priced DSLR with a 24x36 mm sensor looking very dim [I can't see myself dropping over 2 kilobucks on either an EOS 6D or D600], I realized that it's time I got back to shooting some film.

    Having started with a Canon FTb in 1971 that I sold to KEH in 1995 [a hard lesson in the dynamics of the used camera marketplace], I moved to Canon auto-focus as my first-line outfit. I acquired Olympus OM, Pentax and Ricoh K-mount, and Nikkormat outfits during the late 1990s, most of which I have to sell off, but never put aside my Canon EOS gear, and augmented it with a second-hand D-Rebel in 2005, but that's off-topic here, and I apologize for the digression [FWIW, I sold off the D-Rebel in less than two years, after buying a Pentax K10D for its built-in shake reduction in 2007, then wound up trading in the K10D last September on a Nikon D7000].

    I have very strong CBS [Camera Buying Syndrome] as well as LBA [Lens Buying Addiction], so I found myself browsing eBay for a Nikon body that would be compatible with a lens collection that includes several Tamron, Vivitar, Tokina and Kiron lenses Bob Monaghan labelled Cult Classics on his web site, as well as a few pre-AI, AI, AI-s, Series E and non-D AF Nikkors, and came up with a Nikon FA; later, I put in a $25 bid on a Nikon N90s with battery grip and Op-Tech strap to track the auction, expecting to bet outbid just before the auction closed. Surprisingly, no one outbid me on the N90s, so it takes the title of my newest old camera, even though it's not really THAT old [I know, neither FA nor N90s goes with my pre-AI Nikkors, the pre-AI Vivitar Series 1 135mm f2.3, Spiratone Proxitel 200mm f4 and non-AI Vivitar T4 and TX pieces, but the Nikkors can be AI'd, and I found out the others can at least be mounted on later bodies without damaging their aperture ridge sensing levers - a $2 plus shipping junker Nikon EM body from eBay served as my test vessel, and provided me with a compatible battery holder for my FA and carrying strap besides, more than paying for its purchase].

    BTW, both the FA and N90s are in great cosmetic and operating condition; I found a NOS replacement for the sticky original N90s back, an eyepiece for the FA, and eye cups for both.

    Thanks and regards,
    Vince

    Hi Vince,
    Welcome to APUG! I bought me a Nikon F90x (= N90s in USA) two months ago and also replaced the sticky back with a new one from Nikon.
    It's a wonderful camera.
    So, empty that fridge and show us your results please ;-)

    Roberts Camera in Indianapolis had a replacement back [their last one] as a "Buy It Now/Make Offer" on eBay; the eye cup is an aftermarket off-brand from a different vendor, but a perfect fit.

    We have some perennials in containers around our house, which gives me opportunities to practice flower close-up photography.

    I just got a set of slides back yesterday from Dwayne's of Parsons, KS [a Fujichrome prepaid processing mailer - Dwayne's still honors them, and I have a baker's dozen left]. These were taken with a Tamron 90mm AF Macro, and scanned at 3200 dpi with a refurb Epson flatbed scanner I just acquired, with no other processing:

    Today I got three classics, a Konica IIIA, a Konica IIIM, and a Minolta Super A. Both Konicas came with the 50mm f/1.8 lens, the Minolta A has the 50mm f/2. A local shop got what looks like a 2005 Nikon SP for a good price, I will have to try to grab it in the morning before someone else does.

    A 251xxxx serial Nikon F4s with SB-23 and remote cable. Pretty clean body. Even comes with the cap for the cable release socket on the back of the camera. Will be dropping my P type focusing screen into it when it arrives, then loading it up with the Velvia roll that was exorcised from the F5 before it got sold.

    Nice,
    I have a Nikon F5 and F4s for 10 years now but they both died at me. These are wonderful cameras, so I'm thinking of sending them to a repairman or get me an other one.
    It differs from time to time but I think I like the F4s best for its looks & use, but the F5 for its handling - the way it lays in my hands is nice

    When I first saw an F4 I was surprised by its size. It's big enough to be a medium format camera!

    Yes it is. And if it isn't, a good fridge will be

    (I'm stocking Fuji Provia and Kodak Tri-X at least for now, Ilford later also if need be)
