You know, making these lists just highlights that some of us may have a problem. Here's my problem:


Contax 139
Pentax P30N
Pentax SF10
Pentax Spotmatic F
Pentax K-1000
Zenit ET
Praktica Super TL1000
Balda Baldessa II
Canon GIII QL17
Fujica 35-EE
Argus C-Four
Voigtlander Vito CL
Minolta Hi-Matic F


When I shoot film, it's mostly the Contax 139, the Pentax P30n, or the Canon QL17. (I do have a digital camera, a K30.)

Sears TLS (a rebaged Ricoh Singlex TLS here in the US) M42 mount.
There's a couple film cameras I've seen that I'd like to get though.

I have to ask.....how do you find the Vito CL? I've been offered one almost free, but I expect it will need a Service. Worth the cost of that alone? I use a K-30 and a P30N, so I guess we have similar tastes in cameras...

Hi, I can't say I've used it much, as it's a 'guess the focus' kind of camera. Since I tend to prefer shallow depth of field, I prefer seeing my focus. It's an attractive, medal, small number that I got cheap at a thrift store. I wouldn't spend much on it to be honest, but maybe it's worth more than I know. I'd rather put the money into a Canonette QL17. which is a rangefinder I've used a lot.


cheers

Hello,
Lets see:
1 x Leica R4 SP Mot4 With Motor Winder 50mm Summicron and 21mm Super Angulon
3 x Pentax 6x7s (120 film) I think family of lenses. Can not get enough of these lenses and put these on the digital cameras too!
2 x Graphflex Speed Graphic 6x9's with roll film backs and or slide backs (120 film) (these shoot good)
2x Pentax ME SUPERs with family of lenses. (had re worked a wile back, cleaned and they shoot good)
2x KRSP-Ricoh Super Programs (My first cameras in the 80s)
1 x Yashica D(120 film) TLR (Not sure when or why I got this)
1 x Argus Argoflex (120 film) TLR (Not sure when or why I got this)
Lots of junker 120s and some 620s.
Bergheil 5x7 folding camera Pat. 1890
Kodak JR (120) Folder (which has wonderful little lens and it does shoot good.)

One note within lot of crapper cameras is this collected one.
Rokuoh-sha-built Type 99 Handheld Aerial Camera (7.510cm image area)
(No never shot this, film is too odd ball to find) a copy of the American Fairchild F-8.
Fuji and Rokuoh-sha built for for Japanese Imperial Navy.

This is all my Junks I Thinks!

People should get a little film and put into old cameras and shoot some for fun and scan the neg or transparency and see how good an image you get. You'd be surprised!
(SLIDE OR TRANSPARANCY SCAN on a decent scanner and not the Expensive Drum Scan)

I have a long list:

-Pentax: ME, ME Super (2), ZX-L (2)
-Nikon: N2000 (2), N80, FE2
-Canon: AE-1 Program (2), AV-1, A-1
-Olympus: OM-1n, OM-2n, OM-10
-Minolta: SRT-101, X-700, XG-M, X-370, Maxxum 70 QD
-Contax: 139Q, 137MA, Aria, NX (the one I use most now)
-Yashica: FR-II, FX-3 Super 2000, 230 AF, 300 AF, Electro 35 GS, FX-103 Program, FX-D Quartz (2), 109 MP, T4 Zoom (a great p&s!)
-Kodak: Retina Type 118, Retina I Type 126, Retina II Type 011
-Voigtlander: Vito B, Vito BL
-Zeiss Ikon Contina (I think it's a IIa, got to check it out...)

Most of them I've gotten over the past few years from Ebay as they date from my youthful days and were the ones most popular that I drooled over reading Pop Photo. I wanted to get and use them while available. I have two of some, with one body intended as a spare or for parts...

I started with Yashica/Contax, and when they closed, started going to Minolta only for them to close about a year later; and now here I am at Pentax. I hope the albatross following me is dead or something!
Update: the Yashica 230 AF and 300 AFs are dead. Recently was given a Canon Canonet 28, and picked up a Minolta Hi-Matic E and Yashica MG-1.

I've written about reducing my lens list from 42 down to 7 on another thread. I'm down to just a few film bodies also. These are the keepers, all CLA'ed by Eric.

From Bojidar Dmitrov's Page

An obvious tell is it indicates 3200 ASA.
The latest camera revision has three visible differences compared to the earliest: there are two white points missing on the front of the first shutter curtain; pressing the button that releases the viewfinder causes the light meter to turn on, and the shutter-lock switch features a new design.

Thank you. Mine has 3200 ASA, but the older lock switch. There was more than one revision it seems.

Do I have a problem? 77 serviceable film bodies? On the other hand, in digital, only a K5 and two Qs.
