What did you think of the fair? I was shocked to see how many digital cameras now apparently count as 'photographica'! I thought there weren't supposed to be digitals on that fair.Originally Posted by P C Headland
Congratulations with your Yashica? Loving it?
David, you must be clairvoyant: Here is the brother of my Peco: the Makiflex. Really a nice set, especially with the cable release and the recessed lens board, but keep your mouse away from the Buy Now button - or you might have a pricy accident! This auction started a mere three days ago - this seller might be an avid Apug reader...Now that you've mentioned it here, these things will be showing up on eBay and selling for $1600 in no time.
It uses plain 120 roll film, or you can shoot 9x9 cm on a large Polaroid or sheet film. The odd sounding 9x9 cm is because the camera has a revolving back, so you can shoot 6x9 in both landscape + portrait.Forgive the ignorance but what film does it use. 9X9 cm? Roll film? New one on me.
Yes, so I've heard. The Arca Swiss 6x9 Reflex. Another mythical camera. Never seen one in my life, only a small pic on the web. One of the stories I read is that people call Arca Swiss with offers of over $10.000 if ever one of these cameras comes back to the factory. Don't know if this is urban myth or not. Would be interesting to know if anyone on this forum has had hands-on experience with the Arca? Does it have front movements as well? Shutter speeds? Shortest focal length? Did it come with a retrofocus wide angle lens?Cute. Interesting. Very reminiscent of the Arca Swiss reflex.
Would be nice to know.
