    Good morning;

    Some eek-Bait surfing produced two (2) copies of the 1961 Bell and Howell/Canon Canonet 19 Rangefinder 35mm Camera that arrived here yesterday. One of them was dropped and there is a serious dent in the left end of the top, but that one has the mustly working shutter assembly in the lens; only the slow speeds (1/8th to 1 second) are not working. The second sample is in better cosmetic shape, but the shutter does not move at all. I guess it is time for a CLA.

    It was interesting to note how quickly a lot of memories from the early 1960s came back when I flipped the lever on the film advance down, and began to swing the lever on the bottom of the camera with my left thumb to cock the shutter mechanism and move the film transport system.

    Oh, yes, one of them still had a roll of Kodacolor-X in it. The case also has Customs inspection stickers from Bermuda and the United States on it. I am wondering if developing the roll in C-22 chemicals will produce photographs of someone's vacation back in the 1960s.
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    Couple of weeks ago I found a Canonet QL17-GIII in a second hand store. The camera is in fine condition and everything works, even the meter when I put a #675 zink air battery in it. When I went to the desk to pay for it they said on one had been able to make it work. No surprise there, they had it set on auto and without a battery the shutter won't fire. Price was $15 so I made out well. It will need the customary light sealing foam replacement so until I get around to that I can't run film through it.

    Pristine Contax G2 with 45mm. This is my second G2 body in addition to my old trusted G1. Thought for a long time about trying out the Leica M experience, but decided I value the speed of the Contax G system to capture that 'moment' as opposed using manual focus. Very happy Contax G user since I bought G1 brand new....just thought for a bit about the Leica experience...

    Bought a Zeiss Ikon Contessa LKE this week. Paid £1.00 for it. Still on the first froll of film but so far I like it a lot.

    Can control both aperture and shutter speed, built-in coupled light meter works well with no need for a battery. Rangefinder is spot on. And no foam light seals to go manky.

    RF Petri

    Trying to find a Petri 7s to keep for myself and bought a "Good working 7s, meter and shutter are fine" ... well you know the rest. Still looking to repace the one I learned to shoot film and slides with in the 60's. Old story- Dad, Vietnam, PX... and My Dad still remembers it all.

    Steelman, take a look here at this Petri 7s. I've seen this ad up for several weeks.

    I might be able to help a fellow apug'r (and a fellow Texan, incidentally — I grew up in Amarillo) and pick up and ship this to you if it's something you're interested in.
