Probably mentioned this before but you can download all sorts of magazines from the press reader app via your library card (if your library is signed up to it) plenty of photo mags.

Ruddy things. I need to ask how it's done, in the meantime I had another look at my Super Fujica-6 folder, which I still can't figure out how to collimate. I knew it was a bit oily but while I was mucking about I saw that the shutter leaves weren't quite closing, not seen that before, so it's in bits now to clean. There is oil everywhere, I wonder if it's just been blasted with an aerosol. NEXT!

I won't be much use on tlr collimation, not had to do it. Even though I think infinity on my Seagull wwsc-120 is slightly out.

More camera tinkering today. Managed to build one good-ish Nikon FM out of two poor ones. It does have a slight quirk in that if I co.ck the shutter it sometimes doesn't latch and the lens will stop down. If I hold down the DOF preview lever I can wind on and fire as normal.

With the kindly help of the Vintage Camera Repair Group on Faceache I think the FM is up and running. The issue was the mirror not latching. Under the tripod mount is a screw with an eccentric ( spelling probably off, but you know I mean wobbly screw) axle. A slight adjustment and it seems to be working OK.

I went to the cameras today though not as involved as that. Cleaned up and resealed a Contax 139 quartz. It badly needs new leather but I want to see if it works properly first.
I've a couple of 2005 expired films so might use one of those. 15 years old - take it down a stop or leave as is??

They recommend one stop for every decade. Might get some nice colour shifts or some nice grainy shots.

Definitely at least a stop.

More camera tinkering. Been trying to figure out why this Pen EE trips the red flag and locks the shutter if I install the top plate and screw. Found the screw circled in yellow wedges where it shouldn't be, but I'm wondering if something is shorting the meter when it's all back together.
