Re: Vintage film cameras

Nah, I let it go. I've got a Super A as I probably keep telling you, it's got just about everything. I've never had an issue with mine, bought it secondhand in 1998.

Re: Vintage film cameras

Mongolia, wow! Yoko,I know very little to be honest about turntables so I hope it's a good one. My Linn was sold to me by a guy I used to work with, I'd heard of them and he let me take it home and...

Re: Vintage film cameras

Getting pretty quiet in here! What are you all up to? For me, not much, busy at work and been chasing after a new (old) mountain bike which I finally snagged. Still got rolls in the Konica RF and...

Re: Vintage film cameras

Yep the "filter factor" tells you how many stops you need to add to the exposure. You can use a lot of different coloured filters with mono, red will give you really dark skies for example, yellow is...

Re: Vintage film cameras

Sounds good to me. The gear teeth themselves shouldn't need lubrication as they're shaped to roll against each other not just push on each other (the shape of a gear tooth face follows a curve called...

Re: Another SV325 in the rain.

I've heard about this problem and never had it. Make sure the collar bit of the plug cap is good and tight against the rocker cover.

Re: Vintage film cameras

Yoko once the WD40/Plusgas has soaked in the you could try tapping with a hammer and screwdriver. Position the screwdriver in the slot so it is tangential to the screw threads and tap gently, swap to...

Re: Vintage film cameras

If you're stuck then perhaps just give it a bit of WD40 and let it soak. I still don't see why it has to come off first but then I don't know anything about them.

Re: January Photo Comp - Hit and Hope

It's a draw between Keith and Gary. Not sure how you want to play it - join victory, tie breaker, donate 1bn to form a coalition etc.

Re: Front sprocket cover - gunked up behind

If you're using a spray then it's best to just spray it onto the chain, on the inside surface, and turn the back wheel by hand. The idea is the solvent in it makes it runny enough to penetrate, then...

Re: Front sprocket cover - gunked up behind

Doesn't matter whether you use the top or bottom cable adjuster, they both do the same job. As Adam says, the reach adjuster just changes the angle of the lever, doesn't move the cable, so you need...

Re: Vintage film cameras

Dunno if you've delved into a Copal shutter but they're the work of the devil. It's doable but it's hard to know what you're meant to take off in what order, and there seem to be loads of bits....

Re: Vintage film cameras

The lynx has the same aperture blades as the Konica I think, which have the pivots stamped from the thin metal sheet like dimples, and two of them shearing off was the original problem I had with it,...

Re: Carby fuel tanks

I have, it's up in Doncaster though. It has a hole in the bottom corner (where the water collects) that has been plugged with epoxy putty since 2009 and isn't going anywhere. I could look into post...
