It's good you've got a bit of an overlap, it's a PITA when you have to knock it out in a day.

Re: Vintage film cameras

I have a spreadsheet now, and it has estimated values. I also added the ones I've sold, there are a lot more of those than I remember! It also has notes about what needs fixing on them.

Re: Vintage film cameras

1000 so selenium meter. I've checked over the Contessamat and resoldered the wire, it meters fine in low light e.g. 1/30 f5.6 ISO200, but in bright light it's about two stops overexposed. Think I...

Re: Vintage film cameras

Hmm might as well leave it, if I fix the Minolta then it's the same spec and more or less size and weight anyway. The seller doesn't know much so difficult to know if it really works

A few old beasts there!

Fixed the RF vertical alignment on the Contessamat, broke a meter wire in the process, have fixed it but need to check it in daylight. When the vertical alignment is off,...

Re: Vintage film cameras

Will check the meter tomorrow but I think it's okay, slight vertical misalignment on the RF but the adjuster is stuck fast. I've nearly finished the film in my SLR so I'll give this a go next.

Nice! I had a bit of a go at the Contessamat, the cokking rack was a tooth out, gave it all a clean, need to adjust things and I think it's otherwise fine. RF spot is a bit faint but there is a blue...
