    Cool, be sure to post the results after you dive with it.

    I sure will, I'm running a roll of film through it right now to check shutter speeds

    not really RF, but i picked up a rollei 35S and a semi-working olympus XA. the XA's lens is fungused to hell, so it remains to be seen as to whether or not it'll be worth using...

    pstake: The diopter adjustment is the little lever at the base of the rewind knob, at the far left of the top of the camera.

    I just procured a nice little Canonet 28 rangefinder. More like a point and shoot in that it only let's you control the aperture and sets the shutter for you. Nonetheless, a nice addition to the family.

    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...
