    I used the Minolta SRT 201 with the 50/1.7 Rokkor-X and the dent on the side. Finished the roll of FujiColor 200, and shot part of the roll of Kodak ColorPlus 200. Had fun at an adaptive sports event in Lenoir City, Tennessee on Fort Loudon Lake. The Festival Of Friends. Didn't get to Sit-Ski (SI joint very inflamed, CP not playing nice). Did get to ride the Pontoon Boat, and take photos. Had a blast in spite of having to take precautions.

  3. IKOFLEX II wonderfully "bloomed" viewing and taking lenses. This filter was on a ROLLEICORD that I bought. I cannot find information about manufacturer or rarity.


  4. I have this nice-looking Vivitar (Kino) 28-85mm f/2.8-3.8 lens attached to the good old Minolta XG-M, just waiting for the clouds to clear and the sun to appear. It's been a week since I got out with a camera and I can feel a dose of cabin fever coming on...

    Contax IIIa w/Zeiss torpedo finder and (new to me) Nikkor 8.5 cm f/2 lens. This is a bit shorter and lighter than the comparable post-war Zeiss Sonnar 85 mm f/2, and feels just right in my hands. Contax IIIa,Nikkor 8.5cm f:2.jpg

  10. Still got the same roll in the Leica I(a) as last week. Weather this weekend is going to be filled with lots of rain, so probably not much chance to go out and shoot.

  11. I will probably shoot another roll of Agfa APX 100 (the good old stuff) with a Braun Paxina 29:

  12. My newest FM2n. It has smooth shutter blades and a serial number over 8 million. p305.jpg
  13. Started a roll in this one earlier in the week and will finish over the weekend.
    I will likely use the Minolta 24-50 f 4 MD Rokkor zoom and maybe one of my 135 telephotos. I'm testing some Kentmere 400 to see if I want to invest in a bulk roll. Currently it is just over half the price of Ilford HP5+ and even less than half the price of Tri-X. The meter is accurate in the XE so it's a good camera for testing film.

  14. [​IMG] This weekend I will try out my purchase from yesterday: An Olympus OM-2n with a 28mm/3.5.
    This is my first Olympus OM camera and I can already say that I love the size.

  15. I have played with the shutter all winter trying to get the charging of the shutter consistent. It isn't but I will wing it anyway. I admired some photos from 10 years ago using this Biometar on "the other" Exa. The other lens is the Flektogon these lenses including the Pancolar. . came together with Varex IIA and all needed service except the Pancolar.

    Just finished replacing the prism in a Zenit-E. If the weather cooperates, I might take it out for a test. Its selenium meter is still accurate.

  17. I've had a film in this pretty Agfa Ambi Silette for about a month, but due to a succession of grey and wintry days I just haven't got around to using it. Perhaps I'll get a chance this weekend.

  18. not so much what i am using this weekend.but my latest finds locally.the Canon AE1 was a garage sale find w/50mm 1.8 ssc lens and a case.the X700 Minolta was a throw in as it did not wind.i always keep a selection of batteries in my pocket and when i showed the owner it did not work he gave the camera ,3 lenses , a bag ,the minolta winder for it ,and a remote shutter ,and about 10 rolls of film ( expired )for 20.00 bucks. the AE1 cost me 20.00
    the Sunpak 611 Auto was an E-bay find for 9.00 bucks complete woith al the cables ,charger and battery pack that still charges and after testing still changes power output
    as described.will be cleaning the camera's and working on the minolta.meter still works and does not die out when you press the shutter all the way so i am thinking a dirty magnet.we'll see. IMG_2483.JPG IMG_2488.JPG

  19. Finally finished the roll in the Leica.
    Loaded up a Canon Dial 35 with a new LR50 battery and some Double-X. Lowered the ASA setting by one stop to compensate for the voltage difference.
