Resurrective solar powers

Unikt underbart fina kameror - Voigtländer Vito B från slutet av 1950-talet. Alla fem säljer jag i butiken.

Wonderful cameras from the '50s - all sold at Etsy.


De här fina exemplaren väntar på att läggas ut till försäljning. Det återstår en grundligare teknisk genomgång, rengöring och fotografering.

These great examples of photographic equipment await to be listed at getOurBooks. I first need to do a thorough technical examination, cleaning procedure and a photo session.


Det här är en ovanlig kamera. Funkar bra på alla sätt, men den tar en nu utgången 126-filmkassett, inte olik Instamatic-kamerornas filmkassetter.

This one's an odd bird. Yashica EZ-matic is a semi-automatic with choice aperture priority. And a working selenium cell which feeds energy to the light metering. Unfortunately the camera only takes a 126-film cassette, which is no longer available. Unless you are a talented Mr fix-it, which I'm not.

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 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.


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
