In pairs and half a pear

Här är två kameror - mina favoriter.
Below are two cameras - nearly identical. Seemingly so.

Canonet 28 till vänster väger kanske 200 gram mindre än sitt syskon Canonet 19. Den mesta vikten består av större och fler linser i objektivet. Metallen i 19 är också tjockare och den har färre plastdetaljer.

The left one - the Canonet 28 - weighs perhaps 200 g less than the one to the right - the Canonet 19. It's all in the lens - lots of glass - and the casing. There is thicker metal in the 19 and more plastic parts on the 28.

Ricoh-kamerorna här ovan representerar också ett kvalitetsskutt. 500 ST är lätt, ganska plastig i känslan, och har halvautomatisk exponering. 500 G är tyngre, har finare lins och detaljer samt är helt manuell om man vill.

The Ricohs above are also different animals, despite a visual likeness. Weight, lens quality and quality as opposed to budget detailing are evident when you take a closer look.


Nästa bild är tagen genom sökaren på en Chinonflex TTL sedan jag skruvat på en makrolins bakom kamerans 55 mm standardlins. Ganska så fantastiskt kort skärpedjup!
The next image is taken through a SLR with a macro lens added to the original 55 mm lens. Pretty amazing depth of field!

Det här såg vi vid lekplatsen där vi hängde en stund när vi var i Götet i helgen. Gött päron antagligen.
This is what my daughter and I saw close to the playground that we frequented during our stay in Gothenburg last weekend. Probably a juicy pear.

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

Redscale Film in a Halina 35X

  I made a Kodak Ultramax 400 ASA colour film into redscale last summer. I exposed it at 25 to 100 ASA. These are some of the photos. Visit my  Etsy shop  for cameras and related stuff,  the  facebook group  on modding lenses and cameras or my Instagram accounts ourbooksmalmo or flashknappen .

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!
