A couple of film triplets of camera porn. Taken on my KX, Fomapan 100 film. Cross-posted to the B&W film shots thread.

It sold for £1,850.00 ... not bad for a broken lens ...

Gee, I am guessing that someone did not pay up ... because it's back on the block at BHF !

(eBay was so kind as to send me a message that I had another chance to win this lens )

I bought this Retinette 1B at christmas but haven't used it yet. My only Kodak camera and my only viewfinder camera. I don't think the light meter is accurate but everything else seems ok and it's in beautiful cosmetic condition. I'll try to run a roll through it this summer.

A lovely camera to use. Just use sunny 16, and estimated distances. Some of my best pictures were taken this way.

Hi and this is my first post on the forums. Long time lurker, first time poster. I hope this turns out ok.
Here are some shots (of wild Pentax in their natural habitat) that i recently took (while on safari here in South Australia) with my Asahi Spotmatic using a SMC Takumar 28mm f/3.5 on Kodak Ultramax 400 film. Im really impressed with how crisp and clear this wide angle piece of glass is.

A recent addition to my collection, my second Spotmatic F, but this is with split image focus prism (my other Spotmatic F is microprism) and a SMC Takumar 50mm f/1.4.

Just thought i'd share a few shots i did that day, actually using my newer Spotmatic-F that is in the pics with the 50mm f/1.4 and some Kodak 400 Ultramax loaded in it.

Just a really nice old Hanimex Tripod from the 60's, a Takumar 135mm f/2.5 lens, and that same Takumar 200mm f/4 as before.
I could show some shots for comparison i did with my other Spotmatic-F, but using a 55mm f/1.8 with Agfa 200 film, but i don't want to bore people. Just an interesting to compare the two shots.

Bièvre swap meet/expo (Paris Int'l Meet)

Went up to Paris last weekend to maybe the biggest swap in France ... (Sorry aurele, I should have contacted you but decided to go at the last minute)

Here's a few random snaps and I picked up some goodies to be "shown off" later ... J

Sweet! Over here they don't allow photography at the camera shows... I don't know, maybe for tax reasons...

Yeah, it was nice and fun. Most everyone was pretty cool and laid back. And it was a very international swap: lots of Germans/Belgians/Dutch, many Eastern Europeans, some Russians and a few Brits. Lots of "high end" Leica & Hassy stuff, tons of medium/large format and "Pro" equipment to be had ... a bit of everything; even "Impossible" film had a stand ... I was like a kid in a huge outdoor candy store !!!

Only one vendor growled at me (pretty harshly in front of a crowd - pissed me off) ... So I "barked back" even stronger, using some choice French, English, German phrases/words and some international sign language. He backed down quickly and I think he was an Italian ... nor he did not want to come around from behind his caged stand to discuss the issue further. Do not know why he made such fuss since he was not anywhere near in the angle of my snap ... was not like I was shooting with a fish-eye; whatever.
