I've been mostly a Canon FD poster here on p-net for the past few years, but just recently I was given a Medalist II camera. A guy I was doing some work for dug an old camera bag out of his closet and presented me with not one, but two Medalist II cameras. It also included the optional accessory back and film pack adapter, along with several 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 sheet film holders and a portrait lens adapter. Added to that were several filters and an old Honeywell fan-type flash gun. I've searched p-net for postings on the Medalist, but most are rather dated. I also downloaded the owner's manual. Each camera has a few minor (I hope) issues, but are basically sound. I'm hoping to get at least one of them up and running soon. The better of the two is suffering from flash sync problems. Setting the shutter to M, my electronic flash fires at random. I'm guessing a short circuit somewhere. The aperture adjustment is a bit stiff, but working. The shutter seems to work well, but again, I haven't run film through it yet. The name Ken Ruth came up in the searches several times as being "Mr. Medalist Repairman". Is this still a good source? I also read about the 620 vs 120 film issue, and I don't anticipate any problem respooling onto 620 reels, but is there a source for extra 620 reels? (I have 2) I also read about having the camera converted to 120 film use, but that will be for a future time. Any suggestions and/or ideas will be greatly appreciated. I'm looki ng forward to using a camera as old as I am !
