Re: Portraits of Your Gear

What a beautiful camera...brings back great memories.

I had three 500 series cameras over some 20 years and loved the format and the images...they also do well with the 16 MP MFDB backs.

Scanned 120

Sorry that this is not a portait of my present gear....your photo just brought back some great memories.

I know you will enjoy it!

Re: Portraits of Your Gear

I make it a note not the publicly post pictures of my gear...

Not a year ago, on another photo forum, someone posted a nice gear shot... not a week after someone broke into his apartment and stole the gear.

Coincidence? IDK... but i prefer being cautious... and it's not the only story like that...

Anyways, that Alpha is awfully smexy

Yes , true .

Of course , we all have a different taste for design and form of a product .
For me , the LEICA M-series cameras definately belong to the most beautiful 35mm cameras ever built . I was warned to start collecting LEICAs . Now , I know why .
The other brand , not as old and traditional as LEICA , is HASSELBLAD . The V-System . Beautiful as well . IMHO .

What other beauties do we have ? ? ?

The ROLLEIFLEX waters my mouth . That was my first camera to start into MF many years ago . Unfortunately , I sold it , which was wrong .

Agree with M camera beauty. Notice my M immediately followed my Contax in this thread . I had just shot the Contax in the snow and cold, so it was top in my mind at the moment.

Very intimidating. Looks like something you'd put on your shoulder and have someone else load. Does it have a kick when "fired'?

Re: Portraits of Your Gear

Lots of truly fine camera gear here! I'm suddenly feeling an overwhelming desire for a Rollei TLR and a classic Leica rangefinder.

I love the photos of your Hasselbalds Jurgen, both the SWA and the 201F....is that is a 250 or 350 SA mounted on it? I think I'll have to get a photo of my 553ELX with the CF350 posted here soon!

Keep 'em coming folks.....I love seeing all this beautiful equipment.

Gary

Re: Portraits of Your Gear

Gary

It is the CZ TELE-TESSAR FE4/250 T* . I do not have any SA lens . Too expensive . True .
Mmmm a ROLLEI TLR 2,8 would be wonderful , but I restrict my collection to only one brand and that is HASSELBLAD .
But that does not mean , that I do not love cameras of other brands . You just can't have everything .

Monza

Please give more details of that LEICA beauty . Type and age would be nice .

Here comes the beauty of the week . An absolute unique camera .
My VINTAGE QUEEN .

It is a HASSELBLAD "1600F" built in 1951 . The camera you see was sold as is , body , lens and magazine , to a swedish dealer , who sold it to a photographer in Goeteborg . I am the second owner of this beauty .
The lens is an EKTAR and has a metric distance scale . Most EKTARs had a scale in feet , as they were for the american market .
The camera is fully serviced and works properly . I shot some rolls of film with her last year . Her ? ? ? . A camera is a female here in Germany .





And here is an excerpt of the HASSELBLAD ledger books .
The camera you see above is the one in row three .



I hope , you like what you see .

Some more xxx rated . . . . . . . .

It's a Leica If from 1956, with a 50mm SBOOI brightline lifesize viewfinder and a 50/3.5 Collapsible Elmar.

The If is essentially a IIIf without slow speeds or a viewfinder/rangefinder, which makes it a IIf without a viewfinder/rangefinder...if that makes sense...

It normally sports a 28mm Color Skopar and a 28/35 minifinder, scale focused.

Thank you monza .
I think , it is always interesting to know something about the history of the VINTAGE gear .
A very nice P&S 35mm camera , more than 50 years old .

Darn pretty camera. My IIc and IIf were kinda beat up when I bought them in 1969, never looked like that while I had them. The Elmar 5.0cm f/3.5 and 3.5cm f/3.5 lenses were very nice too.

Your M2 is a beauty . Nice to see CZ glass and a Voigtländer view finder attched . I have a Konica Hexar RF (Leica equivalent) but no image .

I also own the FUJI GW690III . So I will not post an image .
I like that camera , but the rangefinder is a bit weak .

This is a great thread . Forum members , please post more of your "beauty" portraits .

Re: Portraits of Your Gear

My Barnack is a iiig. I bought it here on the forum and sent it for a CLA and a new red "coat". It is vintage 1956/early 1957. The iiig came out after the introduction of the M3 and is the last of the Barnacks. The iiig incorporated some of the inovations from the new M line, but is LTM mount. It has a rangefinder window (very nice patch) and a framing window. It has both 50 and 90mm framelines. I have a 1946 35 f/3.5 Elmar on it and an SBLOO viewfinder.

28/2.8 is a fantastic lens, I love how close it focuses. The above shot of the 100/2 was done with the 28...

Thanks. I got lucky with my M2. Purchased in the local camera shop. It's a user, but very nice. I'm a big Zeiss fan (which further explains the Contax ).

I don't mind my Fuji's viewfinder. I guess the RF "dot" is a little weak, but the VF is so huge, and easy to use with glasses.

Re: Portraits of Your Gear

An other vintage MF camera , not as old as the beautiful ROLLEICORD , but from the 1950 s . A very good foldable 6x6 , fully functional .
I have shot two rolls of EKTAR 100 with that beauty last year .
The range finder is a ZEISS IKON .

It should be forbidden to post images with such wonderful LEICAs .
The M series beauties are just great .
But these images stimulate toooooo much desire .
