    FA, in good shape from B&H.

    I got an itch to get back into film and got out the FM and some expired Plus-X and Tri-X.

    Now that I have several small people running around the house that I didn't have last time I shot, the combination of dealing with focus AND exposure was a bit of a pain in the butt. Hence the FA, which is awesome.

    Once the kids are playing sports, I think I need an F4 to run an AF zoom lens that I have.

    Hopefully there will still be reasonable 400 speed color film then. I'm bummed to see that there isn't any more 400 speed Fuji slide film. When I put away my film cameras before, I was only shooting slides and occasional B&W.

    Warren,

    I also have a Voigtländer Bessa of similar vintage that my father found while in Germany during WWII.

    Do you know what thread it has for the tripod mount ?
    I haven't been able to locate a suitable bushing to fit it to my modern 1/4-20 tripod.

    Hi Steaphany

    The original thread size on the bessa is 3/8" (inch) instead of standard 1/4" used nowadays and they are available on the auction site or all good camera shops

    hope this helps

    Olympus XA with A11 flash. Popped a roll in it. Batteries are good, fires perfectly. Light seals appear good. I have the stylus epic which feels like a plastic piece of s**t, however the xa has some heft to it and actually feels like a camera, albeit a very small one. I also like the ability to manually focus and manually set the aperture. Suits my shooting style. Think I am going to like this camera.

    Just bought another Contax 159MM as I was after the lens that came with it - the lovely Tamron SP 70-210 one-touch zoom. £70 bought the 159, W-7 Winder, Tamron SP 70-210 and the little 28-50 plus a Yashica FX-D; I have to say that I'm impressed with 70-210 - very sharp! Also just taken delivery of a very rare Tamron behemoth - the 70-350 f4.5 - an SP lens in all but name. Looking through it, and given its superb build quality, I'm curious as to why it was not part of the SP line-up; it's blisteringly sharp throughout its range. Popped a film into the 159MM earlier today and with its winder and a 55 1.2 Planar, it brought back some happy memories and hopefully took some nice shots here in the Usk Valley.

    I got that same Tamron SP 70-210mm zoom with my Contax RTS II -- it had both the C/Y and the M42 Screw mounts so I took off the C/Y mount and use the M42 one on my Screw-thread Pentaxes and Prakticas !
