Raised Views

I got a Fed 2 rangefinder camera to sell in my shop . It seems to be a younger specimen than my own Fed. The differences are not very obvious. The top camera is the older model. As you can see I had to make a piece raising the cold shoe to be able to use a viewfinder for my 35 mm lens. Since the cold shoe is placed in a recess the finder didn't fit. On the newer version the cold shoe has been raised as you can see.

Family Fotos

I own a fixed lens single lens reflex (SLR) camera called Mamiya Family. (Also sold as Mamiya Korvette or Saturn in different markets.) It was manufactured in the mid-60s. Both the aperture and shutter speed controls are placed on the lens, like on a fixed lens rangefinder camera, and unlike on SLRs where the shutter speed mechanism is placed in the body. This set-up wasn't all that uncommon on early SLRs, though. The reflex cameras hadn't yet largely won the consumer market. And this is no pro' camera. 48 mm fixed lens. I brought this camera for a visit to my future area of residence - namely Bergslagen which is an area where for hundreds of years iron ore was sourced and refined. It is now part of the so called 'rust belt'. I started out on the ice in Västerås. She is made of moss. There was a huuge fire in the eastern part of the area a few years ago. Logs from charred trees.
