    Another Zorki 4, this one an export model, to live with the "Colonel's" engraved model. Looks like new, trying a roll of Fuji 200 under a Jupiter 8. Hope it works as well as it looks. Regards.

    I started film photography in November and since then I've gotten a more than a handful of cameras. Started with 1970s SLRs and moved my way into rangefinders, which I think I'm starting to prefer.

    This one, purchased this week, is the jewel of my collection though (despite the annoyance I mentioned in a separate thread):

    It's just a fantastic size and feels great in the hand. The Yashica Electro 35, my first rangefinder, is just too big, despite looking gorgeous. It's an attention catcher though, which has its plusses and minuses. For the truly discreet shooter, I use my Olympus XA, even though the rangefinder is nigh impossible to see sometimes.

    I'm probably leaning more towards camera collecting than shooting, but cameras from before the 1980s are so beautiful in their own right.

    My fourth C3, all my RF's are Argus's (?) Save for one lower end Tower.

    I think I might look for something Russian.

    Bought a Zorki 4 "Mir" from Fedka.com. It's lovely. I'm still figuring out how to frame without framelines (not to mention parallax correction), but I'll get the hang of it one day. (;

    I like the Russian clones. I have a Zorki 4K with 50mm lens, Keiv 4AM with 50mm and 35mm lenses and 35mm viewfinder, and a Fed 2. All work and look great.

    Took delivery of a Braun Paxette IIM today. I am a big fan of the Paxette range. This one has an uncoupled rangefinder but that is so awkward to use I shall use it as a scale focus camera.

    Contax IIa

    I've lusted after a Contax IIa for a long time and finally got one.


    This one works well. Needed a little cleaning and has one Zeiss bump. Came with a Sonnar 50/2 (about which I will be posting, next) in great shape. No scratches, just a few specs of dust, no coating loss, all working as it should. Even the rangefinder seems to be as it should. Easy enough to focus, much easier than the Fed 2 I played with for a little while.

    Processed my first roll last night. This is Tri-X at 1600, stand dev'd in rodinal. Shot indoors using a Luna Pro F meter ... I think this is at F2 but maybe 2.8.

    I recently acquired this immaculate Vivitar 35ES. What a lovely camera, with a razor-sharp/contrasty (and fast) 40mm f/1.7 lens. I get more enjoyment from this little gem than I do from my four Sony Alpha high-tech DSLR marvels! Looks terrific too!

    Your most recent RF purchase

    Got a bessa r last weekend. A bit scratched and dusty in the viewfinder but seems to meter and expose fine with a quick 12exp roll I shot indoors. Putting it through its paces this week and it will be a nice supplement to the canon Vit I shoot with.
