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!

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


A Lomo Smena 8 camera with a faulty shutter. An Olympus Pen F camera. Part of a microscope adapter for the Pen. That's what I started out with. 45 minutes later I had a new lens! Mount The mount came off a microscope adapter. I got the adapter from my first (of two) attempts to buy an Olympus Pen F. There seem to be some unscrupolous ebay sellers around peddling useless Pens with microscope adapted prisms. Luckily - in hindsight - I got a microscope adapter with this first Pen. Which I now trashed when a Lomo Smena 8 without a future landed on my doorstep (figuratively speaking). Conversion / Havoc Smena I only knew the camera as a half-frame camera [Correction - it's a full frame camera!] called Smena 8 and hadn't thought to place it in Lomography-land until I read the name Lomo on the lens when it was already modded. Unwittingly I had tread the tiles of lomo-dom twice in as many weeks, also having put two rolls through a Praktica CX-1 which appears to be Gr

A busy photographer

This photographer is now an owner of a house with all that entails. That is my focus since October and will be for some time.
