Re: Vintage film cameras

Pretty nifty, I should have put them on my Christmas list! Instead I got two plastic Berties plus another box of liquorice. You know you can get potassium poisoning from that much, and your motor...

You need to ask? He lives somewhere near Manchester so when he had a load of questions I offered to help. He doesn't seem to know much and they were questions like "I think the shutter is too quiet"...

Re: Vintage film cameras

PS also just heard of Vintage Emporium near Stockport in Manchester, at Pear Mill. Not sure when I'm over there next but they certainly seem to have a lot of stuff.

Re: Vintage film cameras

I may or may not have a couple of Agfa Super Silettes soon, earlier (better looking) version I think. I offered to look at a camera for a member on the rangefinder forum, and he has three, so fix one...

Re: Gear/nautral issues

Possibly. The problem I've found is that the plastic worm gets gouged by the ball bearings.

Re: Gear/nautral issues

That's more expensive than I remember! Search the 'bay for "SV650 clutch worm" or "SV650 clutch lifter"

Re: Gear/nautral issues

I've found they last about 20,000 miles so if you're near or over that then don't be surprised if the action isn't great even after adjustment. DON'T take it to bits. Certainly sounds like classic...

I've got a load in the freezer, it should last a pretty long time. About 16 rolls I think.

Re: Vintage film cameras

They're all pretty cheap these days, processing is another matter! There's a Facebook group just for Praktica and DDR cameras. I had a BX20 for a short while, it wasn't working and sold it on as...

Re: Vintage film cameras

Hanging loose mate, whatever that means. Took two whole pics with the Kiev. Certo arrived, it's pretty rough but all there, I think, but at the very least now my own one has the 645 mask and is...

Skipped the mess Ikonta, but bought the Certo, it's on its way. A couple more pics the seller sent looked much better than the ones in the listing, and he had more info. Not sure about the shutter...

Re: Vintage film cameras

Am wondering that, about grabbing it. The shutter detaches so the body can be used with bellows - you can see the chromed clip sticking up from the camera. Mine does the same. The focusing helicoid...

Quick one, I spotted the dots in the end, I'd ended up rotating the button at some point, which didn't help!

Re: Vintage film cameras

Haharrrr, yes indeed, be sure you have the oil and grease out of the nooks and crannies or it'll just come back again.

Managed to unjam the Kiev without taking it apart (fiddling and luck) so...

I'm no closer to shooting with either of them! While testing the shutter speeds on the Kiev, which were pretty accurate, the shutter jammed part way through winding on, I need to find out how to...

Re: Vintage film cameras

At the weekend when the weather picks up a little we'll hopefully get out for a ramble, so will take a camera with me, got a few shots left on the Contessa, and three on the Ensign (still).
