    Picked up this little toy box camera at a flea market yesterday. It is a promotional item for Graf cheese in France. It is actually a rebadged FEX/Indo Super-Boy manufactured in 1955. It runs 127 film.

    Set of Graflex flash synchronisation cables for my Speed Graphic. Rubber has deteriorated, but I can at least use the plugs to make new cables. And another Lens vise tool.

    An yesterday I received the clamp attachement for mounting the Graflex slave flash for my Speed Graphic camera set. Still looking for some of the original wiring to hook it all up. (Mainly the cable to link the flash synchronizer to the shutter actuation solenoid).

    The Leotax F is slightly bigger, and somewhat heavier than my Leica IIIg roughly from the same period. Presumably to create a bit of room for the flash synchronisation. The camera certainly feels very solidly built and operation feels and sounds as smooth as the IIIg. The shutter curtains...

    Zeiss Ikon Kolibri (523/18) Freshly cleaned lens and focusing helical, some oxidation removal, viewfinder fine-tuned. Leatherette needs to be reglued in some spots and it can use a bit of polish. Will be feeding it some 127 format Rerapan 100, soon-ish.

    First post-lockdown weekend flea markets visited last weekend; Picked up this Yashica Minister-D. It had a really nasty dent in the filter ring and the battery compartment was corroded pretty badly. After some TLC and a fresh battery all appears to be in working order.
