    Pair of near mint Pentax MESupers from junkBay plus SMC M 28/2.8 plus SMC M 50/1.4 plus SMC M 85/2, all actively sought (wanted metal shutters and each specific lens).

    If I could travel back in time i would buy and freeze in-date Fuji NPZ and EK2475.

    Got myself a nice Minolta 9000 with 35-70 mm lens for 27$. Everything appears to be in good working order. Previous owner installed a split image focusing screen, knowing what first generation AF was like, it's a welcomed feature :happy:

    The FV has been on my "maybe, someday" list for about 20 years. It seems like every time I come close to buying one something else bats it's eyes at me and I end up buying that instead.
    I recently acquired a half-frame mask for my enlarger so.... maybe, someday soon.

    Just bought my first large format to add to my 35mm and MF collection, a Cambo SCII. Bought all the bits needed to take and process first images when everything is in. Look forward to giving it a go.

    As I mentioned in passing I've wanted a Nikon F100 for a long time and this one came along in excellent + condition at a very good price so I finally gave in to my camera lust.

    Here's the camera I mentioned in my previous post, the Ricoh XR-X 3PF aka XR-10PF in Japan. It was Ricoh's flagship camera back in 1995 and the last film SLR they've manufactured.

    The appearance of that camera is amazing - it is so sleek!

    Do you focus with the narrow ring at the front of the lens and the top display shows the range? Does the wide ring near the body move at all?

    That slender profile appealed to me too. Front ring is focus with click stops corresponding to 1.2, 2.5 and ~5.5 meters, and a corresponding indicator can be seen in the top-mounted display.

    Larger ring is a Hasselblad-esque uni-control (calibrated in Exposure Values) which changes both aperture and shutter speed.

    Pentacon Pentaflex 8. Have disassembled it to discover some horrible constructive things. An intermediary camera just prior to the still more integrated ones made in Japan, of course also designed in Chicago. Not service friendly

    Just got this yesterday as a gift. The H3v is known as the SV elsewhere in the world. Note the knurled self-timer around the ASA/rewind knob. It currently has the legendary 8-element 50/1.4 lens (https://www.pentaxforums.com/lensreviews/Super-Takumar-50mm-F1.4-Early.html).

    As with this camera, about 80% of my cameras now are either all-manual or would need a battery only for the meter (which I often don't use).

    Nice! I am moving along those lines too; trying to divest myself of most of my SLRs with electronics. While I have nothing against them, the fact is the aging circuits are becoming worrisome and are often irreparable when they die.

    For Christmas I was given the following cameras.... Voightlander Brilliant, Polaroid 660, Bencini Comet, Bolex B8 and Ensign Greyhound. All look to be working, I retrieved a 50 year old Kodak Verichrome Pan from the Voightlander, which I developed and got images of the ownder's late father and wife from the late 60s.

    I picked up a Pentax Espio 120 for $5 at a thrift store which appears to have minimal use. It has a decent performing 38-120mm SMC lens with 9 elements in 7 groups.

    A near mint Kodak Specialist II Half Plate camera with 203mm f7.7 Ektar and 4¼" (110mm) f6.5-11 Dallmeyer Wide Angle lenses, extension rail, sliding tripod block, original instruction manual, plus 6 DDs, all in the original flight case. This Kodak camera was made in England.

    upload_2019-1-16_18-37-36.png

    The British made 203mm f7.7 Ektar is in a Kodak modified Epsilon #0 shutter which will help date the camera Kodak switched to the Prontor SVS, the 4¼" f6.5-11 Dallmeyer Wide Angle is f6.5 for focussing but maximum aperture is f11 for taking.

    While it's a Half plate camera it can be used with 7x5 DDS (film holders).

    This past Saturday I picked up another Canon T70 and 277T flash combo from a local Goodwill store. Came with the body, a 50mm 1.8 lens, the flash and a soft bag for $25. Included an exposed roll of Kodak Gold 200 which I developed.

    Was able to get the film rewound with fresh batteries and also had to tighten up the lens mount which was loose.

    I already have another T70 with a 50mm 1.4 SSC with the same flash so no good reason for a second one, but yet there it is. I definitely prefer using my AV-1 over the T70 so I might move them along in the future.

    M5's are underrated. Good meter & well made & quieter than the other m's
    User friendly: easy to change the shutter speeds with the hangover dial

    Here's a strange little bird; An GAF Ansco Memo II Automatic, 35mm Half-Frame, spring motor driven, auto exposure camera. It's really a rebadged Ricoh Auto Half, but its still an interesting camera. You can get about 10 to 15 shots per full spring wind and it runs about 1 - 1.5 seconds a frame, so it's surprisingly spry for its size. Just needs some light seals; I think the meter works...
