    How's weather at your place?

    It's been a weird few months with a week of 20C temperatures followed by a week of near-freezing and heavy snow fall. But it looks like Spring is finally arriving as we seem to have lost the night frost now though and day-time temperatures are topping at 15C. I never needed to use the wood...

    Film What FILM (!) photography related item did you buy this week?

    A Kodak Vollenda 48, the early 127-format model with a Schneider-Kreuznach f/3.5 Radionar. Same camera as used for snapshots by cameraman Max Fleming in 1944/1945 while serving with the 165th US Signal Photographic Company.

    Spent this lazy Sunday converting these Zeiss Super Ikontas (530/15) to use 120 film instead of 616. Film plane masks and viewfinder masks added. Bring your own spool adapters. ;)

    Stroll Seen while strolling...walking and wandering outside

    Out walking in a National Park nearby, testing a Horseman 6x12 back with a freshly-cut DIY-dark slide. Mounted it on my Anniversary Speed Graphic. This was the only frame not ruined by light leaks from old seal or the poorly fitting slide (I didn't take the holder off the camera after this...

    Spent 2 weeks rebuilding this Midg No.3. Now fully restored to working condition Though I still need to touch up some black paint, nail down bits of the trim and source a bit of rubber tubing for the pneumatic shutter release at this point. Was it all worth the trouble? Probably not...

    Am I the only one that does this?

    Oh, I do. Often because I'm restructuring sentences on the fly. It's only after I've hit "Post Reply" that I spot the mistakes and have to edit the message. Sometimes more than once. I dislike forums that don't allow you to update your messages after a while. I suppose because it makes me feel...

    And yes....the Mountain Elmar has been charged to my card as well.... Now that's some brassing! Serial number ranges in the 300.000 so probably a very late one ....1937 possibly. Comes with the hood and cap too.

    So, I've recently got a worm-eaten Butcher Midg No.3 that's going to take a bit of work to bring back to life. I did a bad thing and bought another one.......to my Credit Card's distress. Murer's Express Newness....not exactly sure about the size. Possibly a 6x9...though it looks larger...
