    Sounds like great fun, and my Zeiss Ikonta B has been sadly neglected lately, crying "Feed me Seymour, feed me!" Time to load her up again.

    I'll be in.

    Now, just have to decide what to use: Agifold, Iskra I, Iskra II, Certo Six, Moskva 5, Franka Rolfix II, Ikonta 524/2 (no, can't use that, the shutter is separated from the camera by some 10000km...), Century Graphic or soon to arrive Super Ikonta III.

    Maybe it would be a good time to by something else just for this ? :o

    Choices, choices....

    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:

    The chunk-ectomy was successful! I was able to dismantle and clean all lens surfaces with ROR (Residual Oil Remover) and get rid of the large chunk, the smaller chunks, and the other deposits that have built up over the latter part of the previous century. I remember taking pictures of my sister's cat with this camera and being impressed with the performance in the early to mid 1980s. On to November!

    Great timing with this one... I picked up a nearly mint Voigtlander Jubilar over the weekend for a whopping three dollars, and have been itching to play with it, as it's the only folder I have that still takes commonly available film.

    Eight inches of rain in Seattle in 7 days. November has not been kind for image-making (yet). The Kodak Six-16 folder is pretty bullet proof, but not waterproof. Anyone else having any luck?

    Not sure yet. I was out in NYC in today's torrential rains with my new-to-me Franka Solida III (Thanks Matt). Haven't souped the HP5 yet but I am optimistic about some frames of people with umbrellas by the NY Public Library's lions. I hope I got something worth printing to justify my soaked feet.

    I shot a roll of Adox 100 thru the Kodak No. 2 Folding Autographic Brownie with the Rapid Rectilinear - but didn't like any of the compositions.

    For grins I took a shot of the moon, hand held on the last frame.
