    A combination of the rediscovery (via my scanner) of my b&w negs from the 1980's plus having some M-Series lenses led me to thinking (a dangerous pastime, I know) and the result is a step back into the analogue age - and no batteries needed.



    One of a batch made in 1964. It arrived on Thursday and I am just putting the second roll of HP5+ through it in order to check out the shutter speeds and rangefinder accuracies. Must pop up into the loft to find my Paterson tank and other paraphernalia...

    I'll looking at a Kodak Retina IIIS, can't seem to make up my mind I have Minolta Himatic 7S, Canon QL17 and Retina IIc and Koni Omega Rapid M so it's not like I don't have enough cameras, just id the IIS going to be that much better than the 35s I have ?

    BTW I'm looking for the 35 / 80 viewer for my Retina IIc, which is probably my favorite RF. I like the Koni Omega but getting 120 220 processed and printed has become a problem, the Ql 17 has a light leak other wise it is very fast to use, has the same problem as Hi matics meter only works in auto mode but great little cameras ! strange how I've come to enjoy useing RFs more than SLRs

    Got a Contax G 90mm f/2.8 converted to M mount from Japan Exposures, love how the shots came out. (Just got around to scanning them this past month.)

    Just purchased a 90 Elmar on that auction site...great price. This will replace/augment my 85 f2 Serenar which is aging none to gracefully. Will post some images when I put it through it's paces.

    Wow! A Werra was my very first camera back in the mid '60's. Can't remember any great photos with it but it got me into developing & enlarging and how to set exposures. I wore it out after about 2 years and I moved up to a Mamiya/Sekor 1000TL.

    The IIIS takes interchangeable lenses: 28/4, 35/2.8, 50/2.8, 50/1.9, 85/4, and 135/4 from Schneider, plus a similar group from Rodenstock.

    I bought a Werra for my father a few years ago and it started him collecting old cameras. The Werra was the first camera he bought when he left school and started work which would have been early sixties and was probably all he could afford too.

    Quite an interesting design with the wind on mechanism around the base of the lens.
