Got a friend just about to get his first tech camera and I'm looking for the old Fotoman Aulx Rangefinder.
Anyone remember these?
Don, I had one I used with a Fotoman 617 many moons ago. I found it to be pretty accurate. Midwest Photo was a source for them in the past. I sold mine with the camera and lenses to a guy in England that I think is still using it. You could easily use it without the Fotoman camera.
Bob - that's the one. I bought one shortly after Guy sold his.
Darr - thank-you
I've been using a combination of the Fotoman and a Leica D5 with my WRS.
Okay time to fess up and say it's Ken who after listening to me for the past 4-years has decided to get a WRS. Just found out the US side of Fotoman closed their doors a couple years ago and no one has any of these little jewels left in stock. Fotoman website hasn't been updated in years.
On the bright side I got a PM form another member offering to sell his so Ken better get off the stick and buy the dang thing otherwise I will just to have a spare.
Many thanks to the great family here.
Going off the air shortly as we have a haboob coming our way....
I do still have the Fotoman you sold me! It's a great camera and have got many great shots with it and i have taken it everywhere with me, 40,000 miles and counting. I am actually searching for a shift adapter for it now which is how I cam across this post.
Sadly Fotoman in china don't make the rangefinders anymore, from time to time they appear on ebay.
Wow, it sounds like you and the Fotoman are a great match. I went over to your site and looked at your work; absolutely stunning!! I hope you are able to locate a shift adapter. If I come across one, I will definitely let you know. All the best to you!

It may take a few days, but he should respond. He still has a few Fotoman components on hand - I recently bought a focusing helical from him.

Btw, the Fotoman site has one auxiliary rangefinder left on special---$135. Pretty neat device....thanks to my co-enablers.
