    The Zeiss Ikon is ready.

    So is the Daiichi Zenobia, the Voigtländer Perkeo, and the Balda Belfoca. And just maybe my travelling Bessa-I will come home in November?

    Any vintage medium format folding camera is allowed. We are including the Baby Graphics (2-1/2x3-1/4) and the vintage Plaubel Makinas.
    Two questions:

    1: is a "participant" a person or a camera?

    2: Should rollfilm backs be used on those cameras originally made for sheet film? I have a cute little Voigtländer Bergheil 6.5x9cm too - and a rollfilm back for it.

    Yoooo-hooo! Count me in! I'll be there, with my Agfa Isolette.
    Future, present, past. Life, decay, death, birth. I try to catch a glimpse of history as it unfolds before my eyes, and to pass that on to future generations. I am a witness of my time.

    The idea was one shot per person that applies to the MF Folder Month, the best one you get from how many or how few cameras you may have. However, there sure ain't nothing that says you can't post any other shot on APUG that you desire.

    No restriction on that either. That was one reason why I posed the question about the Baby Graphics because they used a 6x9 sheet film, and also had the 120 roll film backs. Some of the old Kodak folders also had glass plate adapters. Wonder if anyone will have one of those?

    Ole, can we make this thread a sticky?

    Isolette

    I acquired an Isolette from the 'bay just for this purpose. Should be here shortly and hopefully in some working order. I pulled out my old Agfa and the bellows had deteriorated to dust, so 'had' to go shopping.

    The thread has been successfully Stuck.
    That's what it says when a thread is "stickified" - I kid you not!

    Hmmm... Now you got me wondering if I have any 6.5x9cm glass plates.

    NO! I'll use roll film. Drop that plate thought, and forget about the sheet film too. I'll be a good boy and use real roll film in a camera made for roll film.

    I think.

    So far, at least.

    I think I'll be able to get 5 exposures, but the "window" on mine coincides with the 6x4.5 numbers on the roll, so I have to read in 2 1/2 exposure increments (2, 4.5, 7, 9.5, 12, 14.5).

    Panoramic indeed, although it's hard to get that sense from those tiny viewfinders!

    Matt - I unload the finished spool of 120 film on the 616 spool in the darkroom or changing bag and transfer it to something light-tight if I won't be developing on the spot. The 616 takeup spool is wider than 120, so the finished roll cannot be exposed to light. The issue I am concerned with is that the spacers (nickels -US five cent pieces) do not shim the 120 roll tight enough to create tension and may affect film flatness. This is not a show-stopper though. The big black chunk in the middle of the lens elements that I discovered last night is a bigger problem....

    Doug:

    Thanks - I've found that the 120 film cannisters that J & C sell are big enough to hold the 616 spool, so if you are looking for something that doesn't require taking the film off the spool in the field, you may want to try them (in the changing bag, of course).

    My 616 camera has a spring loaded pressure plate, so film flatness isn't as vulnerable. One thing you might try though to provide tension is small 7/8" fabric pads that are designed to be put on to the legs of chairs, to protect floors. They are just squishy enough to provide some tension. Just be careful to check for shedding.

    Good luck with the black chunk.

    Matt
