Little find

Idag provade jag en ny kamera under vår söndagstur till IKEA.
Today I tested a new camera during our Sunday outing to IKEA.

Det är en Minoltina-P med hel- eller halvautomatisk optik. Fast skärpan ställer man in själv.
It's a Minoltina-P semi- or fully automatic, with manual focusing.

Mätaren drivs av en seleniumcell, så man behöver inget batteri. Det är ganska fantastiskt att cellen fortfarande fungerar eftersom kameran är tillverkad 1964-65.
The light meter is run by a selenium cell, so no battery is required. After all this time - the camera was manufactured 1964-65 - the cell still works, which is kind of unusual.

Minoltinan kom i ett fint läderfodral som var ovanligt välbevarat.
It came in a nice leather case/pouch which was in unusually good condition.

Alltihop dyker snart upp på min sida på Etsy; getOurBooks!
It will all soon show up in my Etsy shop!

Building a Large Format Camera - 9x12 Camera From Sourcing to First Photos

This is a sequence of pictures showing the process of my construction of a bellows camera for 9x12 cm photographs. The final exposures were made on paper positive paper.             Visit my  Etsy shop  for cameras and related stuff,  the  facebook group  on modding lenses and cameras or my Instagram account  ourbooksmalmo .

Chaika Leica

Well, here's a Chaika 2M that I bought from Alex Helios via Instagram.  It's a great full manual viewfinder half-frame camera. The wheel on the top is for shutter time selection, from B to 1/30th to 1/250th of a second. The square button on the front right of the camera is the release/exposure. The lens mounted on the camera in the picture is not the original Industar-69. The Chaika is a rare model compact camera since the prime lens is detachable. What is more is that it has M39 screw mount. But - like with the Paxette M39 system - you can't get focus with a lens from another M39 system. Unless you adapt the lens or - in this case - the camera (mount)! The Chaika mount is easily detached from the body by loosening four screws. If I want to mount the Leica thread mount M39 (LTM) lenses on the Chaika - which is my goal with this mod - I have to add 1.3mm to the mount. That is what is needed to change the camera's flange focal distance (FFD) from Chaika system to L

Stare Crazy - a Budget Wide-Angle Lens Solution for my Olympus Pen F

I fitted a wide-angle screw-on lens for a Konica 8 Zoom super-8 camera on my Steinheil Cassarit 45 mm and my Voigtlander Color-Lanthar 42 mm. I got WIDE on my half-frame camera!   It wasn't pretty, but it did the job for sure! I've been racking my brains for years trying to come up with a low budget wide-angle solution for the Pen F, which is the SLR I use the most. I got more than I could wish for because of all the character the lens contributes to photos! The film is a Fuji Ultramax 400 which I haven't colour corrected in any way. I increased contrast. The rest is the work of the scanning program. I didn't find the Ghostbusters' garage. It's my brother's!
