    A Balda Jubilette - 35 mm camera from very late 1930s. It has the focus scale in metres and no 'Made in Germany' so will be a late import to the UK (possibly a war-time acquisition by a British soldier in Germany in 1944/5?).

    It has a Baltar lens - anyone any idea who made these for Balda?

    G.A.S. is a horrible thing.

    I did it again, despite the fact that I have two clean Nikon FM's (Chrome) and a black FE I drifted back to e-bay and bought a black FM last night.

    I totally understand getting something you don't currently have. I even understand getting a backup of something you have an love. But why buy a third example of a camera? (Not trolling, honest question)

    I can't speak for anyone else, but for me it's parts. So long as the third, forth, etc. are cheap enough, I can be sure of having repair parts for a long time.

    One for color, one for B&W/spare, one backup.
    For a lot of cameras the only source of parts is an extra body.

    I have a couple answers.

    1 I like black and chrome versions of each body I chose to add to my collection.
    2 I like to replace current bodies with examples in better condition, then the current one either goes for spare parts or for sale.
    3 With FM bodies there are varients to consider, 2XXXXXXXX series and 3XXXXXXX series black and chrome etc.
    4 sometimes the body comes with lenses or accessories that I want
    5 sometimes the price is too good to pass up

    and last of all but not least

    because we can

    Good question, and many good answers.

    My 2nd chrome FM came along at a good price, and it is cleaner and newer than my first chrome FM. 34XXXX vs 21XXXX serial numbers. I have one loaded with AGFA 400 and one with PX at the moment.

    The black one last night I probably paid too much for, but I've wanted a black FM since I was fifteen, so....what the heck. Hopefully the meter works and I didn't just waste $39 + shipping. But, if it's shot, then I have spare parts.

    YES! YES! YES! I 100% agree and I haven't started to build a set of both black and chrome bodies yet. I have a variety but someday will start to close that gap.
