    Rodchenko purchased a Leica in 1928. I'm not sure what he used for his very earliest work.

    If you want to take photographs like Rodchenko, you'd do just as well to wear the same type of socks.

    See: http://www.profotos.com/education/re...odchenko.shtml

    1923 Rodchenko Acquires a 13-by-18-cm. view camera to make copies, enlargements, and reductions for his photocollage work.

    April 1924: In his apartment on Miasnitskaia Street, using a 9-by-12-cm. plate camera, Rodchenko makes a series of six portraits of Mayakovsky, his first lasting work in photography. Soon begins to photograph family and friends.

    I believe that Ole owns examples of both of these camera types.

    eBay would be good place for you to look for reasonably priced examples.

    Don't we all.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Hey , he had been used a elmax leica. I used a 3C 1946 with Elmar , if i m not wrong there is no difference between Elmax and Elmar ?
    What was the Rodchenkos view camera lens ?
    Did CCCP produce Elmar ? Are they still producing leica copies at Russia ?

    good one. much easier to find a leica A than some 1920's russian socks however. i'm thinking of taking up smoking Siskind's brand of cigars.

    Maybe if you buy the same model guitar Hendrix used you'll play like him?

    Elmar copies were produced by several different factories in the FSU. I do not believe that they are still in production. Check with Fedka: http://www.fedka.com/Useful_info/Com.../commune_A.htm

    You could also ask Fedka about FSU View camera lenses, I have a nice 210mm f4.5 Industar -51 in barrel mount. The serial number is 872447, so I suspect that it was made circa 1987.

    It is not for sale.
