Been keeping an eye out for a Super Solinette but may be later in the year. So I take it that you have become the go to man for camera repairs?

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" so stuff you really need to see in person. Yeah, I know, most people think cameras sound like an iphone though, or the sound of a shotgun being pumped in a film, whereas a leaf shutter is almost anticlimactic. I wanted to change the iphone camera sound to a recording of a leaf shutter but it's about a million times harder than in Android.

I didn't think about changing my phone shutter sound. I will have to find my best sounding camera and see what I can do. I thought the shutter on tje Kiev and my Zorki 4 are a bit of a let down, so are the XA shutters. Makes them good street shooters thought as they are so quiet.

I think I have seen that before but I will give it another read. Got a bod on a job lot that has an OM2 in it, might need a little work but we'll see.

Article on Maitani is fairly interesting.
Good luck with the 0M2 bid. They tend to go for crazy prices these days. 10% off everything blue Monday flash sale at WYC yesterday but I resisted.
Not doing anything camera related at the moment. I think it's the time of year.

I guess because the weather is so grotty its hard to get out and shoot. If I do, then its usually black and white to make the best of it.
