The rebuild of the rather battered reflex



My wife spilled coffee on it















Loaded some 35mm film into my Coronet 6x6 for some sprocket photography

Up in Teesside but may post, he does sell on ebay too (from our conversation while I was there) but no idea if this stuff is on there.

Had a bit more of a look at the lens on the K2, it has a wobbly front barrel, but also seems it won't stop down past about f8 - the aperture ring clicks but the aperture doesn't get any smaller. I have other lenses I can use to try the camera out, but looks like this will need a bit of attention. It's a Pentax 50mm f1.2 and looks like a nice piece of kit.

I'm looking at a couple of camera cases on ebay - they do still have cameras in them though! I might soon be able to do you a deal on a Nettar 6x6 without a case...

The AE-1 lives! Installed the battery and some Poundland film and popped off a few shots.

You've all inspired me to dig this back out. I used to use this all the time and it took lovely pictures. I've got a stack of old brand new films sealed up in canisters still too. I'll run them through the camera and see if they are any good.




Found these in the case as well.

Were you shooting the flowers wide open? I must get in Flickr sometime, I took a load of pics when I dismantled the lenses on a couple of cameras and should post them for other people.

I'm naturally a bit of an equipment geek, but I'm more enjoying the challenge of fixing old stuff than just poring over numbers or summat. That said I've not done a lot of photography in years until again in the last 12 months, and it is nice to be back into it. I've seen a lot of arty shots on forums, Flickr etc. but it's not my style, but I have found myself spotting things that would make good pictures, even if I haven't taken one, if that doesn't sound daft.

I might even feel like I can estimate a good exposure one day! I'm messing about with fill-in flash just now, still finishing the roll of film in the Vitomatic, which has a leaf shutter so can sync at any speed.

Yeah, as wide as it would go I think. Something like F1.8. Not digital so I can't just dip into the exif data. Just finished the roll in the Ensign and a roll from one of the Vito Bs.

Arette? According to my Google-fu anyway!

I've been studiously writing down all the settings when I've been putting test films through, or for tryout stuff like messing around with the flash. It's a bit tedious but if something comes up or it's just a crap picture, I've got something to go on.

Someone on Ebay is selling a Voigtlander Brilliant, they've misspelled it and I think it's in with camera cases or something, could be a bargain, but it's a pseudo-TLR not a coupled one. In case you're interested:
