    The Heligon takes very nice photos. Sharp yet pleasing. The shots of the folks at the office are particularly nice.

    It is very nice wide open. I'm going to have fun using it. Nice web site, Mike. Very interesting history about some great cameras.

    Today I picked up a brassy Nikon SP with a 2.8cm f/3.5 lens. The SP is a chrome model, but so heavily used that much of the chrome has worn off. The lens looks eaqually well used, with much of the black finish worn off, but the glass looks perfect. Amazingly, despite it's appearance, everything on it works perfectly, and according to my electronic shutter tester, the shutter is almost spot-on. I am doing some film testing with it now, I ecpect it will take great photos.

    I've been on kind of a jag lately of filling out the line of Yashica rangefinders I have, and have been coming across some fairly cheap. So in the last month and a half, I've picked up an M (needs shutter work), a Minimatic C (works flawlessly), and today I won a J (no, not on the Big Auction Site) for $7.00. That should keep me busy for a while.

    My second Contax IIa, this one is a color dial but I rarely use flash with RF's so just got it because my first was a black dial.

    It has a Jena 50 1.5 but condition is yet to be determined for the lens. Hopefully just a few bubbles and no cleaning marks (fingers crossed but good return policy in place)

    Got a new-to-me "one more time".

    I had told myself that my camera buying days were over. Enough was enough! But then I saw an old rangefinder with "no issues" on flea-bay for only $5.00(omg)and two hours later it was mine. A few days later I held a working Minolta Uniomat. My larger cameras are resting now as I reacquaint myself with their smaller fixed lens brothers. The tiny ones, Oly Pen Ee S and a Minolta REPO,both 1/2 frames are the smallest . Next ,a Minolta Hi-Matic F, a Konica C35, as well as a Canon Canonet QL-17 . Now the Uniomat is indeed the heaviest weighing in at 745 grams w/film. This with a good wrist strap can double as good street protection as well as a nice picture taker. I line them up on a side table in no particular order and try to give each a bit of a workout

    It's been a while since I've posted here and, in fact, I've acquired a few rangefinders in the interim. My most significant recent rangefinder purchases are an Agfa Isolette III 6x6 w/Solinar in a Synchro Compur shutter, and a Zeiss Ikonta 524/16 6x6 w/Tessar in a Synchro Compur shutter. I bought the Agfa Isolette off Goodwill's auction site for about $50, and found the Zeiss Ikonta sitting on the shelf in a second-hand store for $3.93. Woot! Both are outstanding square medium format shooters.

    That are outstanding deals, especially the Mess Ikonta 524/16.
