Re: Vintage film cameras

Have you got a date? We're off on hols next week, all inclusive resort in Turkey where, in a sort of retrograde evolutionary step, my daughter will become aquatic for a week.

Re: Vintage film cameras

I'd give it a miss, I think mine has an f3.5 Novar but might be f4.5 but anyway it's 50% over the odds and who knows if the RF works and they just don't understand it, or if it's knackered. If you...

Re: Vintage film cameras

Hmm tricky alright! Looks nothing like mine. Anything in the film chamber? I'm sure one of mine has an adjuster in there, the top is covered by what looks like a large screw but it's just a plug

Re: Braking performance

My bike has about 45k on it now and the brakes definitely aren't as good as they used to be, even after a good going over. I've not looked at the sliding pins for wear, but a good few years ago you...

Re: Vintage film cameras

Hmm, if I remember I'll look at mine, but it's not quite the same model. Normally taking the top off does the trick! Can you post come pics of it, er, topless?

Re: Vintage film cameras

Holy cow, that's quite a pic! Good haul there Kenzie, I have an Olympus S Electro Set but with G Zuiko 1.8 and it is one of the few cameras that has worked well. The RF needed adjusting but that was...

Re: Ditching RAC - but who to go with?

Avoid AA, that's all I can tell you, if you think RAC were bad (who have been good for me in the past) then you'd be in for a nasty surprise. RAC premiums are high though, massive introductory...

Re: Vintage film cameras

I noticed that when I got my first leaf shutter camera, after only using SLRs seriously. A little, anticlimactic phut, and no darkness. The shutter speed has to be pretty slow to really be able to...

Re: Vintage film cameras

The 35RC is a bit like the Trip, K1000, etc. the hipsters have heard of them so they are instantly desirable. Look on ebay, too many cameras, right better do a search, but for what? Google "best 35mm...
