The Vito Stats

Now almost two years ago I spent a few days in Stockholm, mainly to attend the 24h Fotomaraton. The day before the competition began I used a Voigtländer Vito B and four rolls of film to warm up my photography muscles. Three films were black and white ones but the fourth one was colour.
During the last roll I realized that the film wasn't winding properly so had some fears that the pictures wouldn't come out as I hoped. (I mention this here.) And in hindsight all three developed rolls suffer from double exposures of various kinds.
With that said I am really happy with the few usable pictures I got. Above is a cropped version of the first image in this post. The photos are proof that the Vito B has a very 'nifty fifty'. I. e. the lens is very good - at least in daylight situations at apertures 5,6 to 11 which was all I got during the day of the excursion.

I even got a spectacular view of the Old Town / Gamla Stan out of a double exposed picture as can be seen below.

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!
