Kodak Medalist & Medalist II

This is my friend Bob's 1944 Kodak Medalist, next to my 1947 Kodak Medalist II.
Both are fully functional, and I should have scans later today from the test roll I ran through Bob's Medalist.
I have an original Medalist myself...the pictures that thing takes are amazing. Wonderful cameras, and big, BIG negatives!

A recent acquisition. The red sticker stops the loose rewind handle from flopping about as I broke the metal piece that's supposed to hold it in place. Light seals have been changed and the meter seems accurate.

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. . . . . .
It is nice to be able to respond in a multilingual manner, isn't it?

Nice, that's the first camera that I ever took pictures with. (It was my mom's)

A recent charity shop find for £10. It seems to be in excellent working condition. There is a sticker inside from a service in Malmö which was guaranteed until April 1st 1964.


Nettar (3) par Kris Lockyear, on ipernity

Now to load it with film.

I have one that I think is exactly the same. It's a great camera. I'd check for light leaks in the bellows before use though - in a dark room open the back and shine a torch in and inspect from outside.

The bellows look pretty good. I've loaded it with Portra 400. I'll go out tomorrow and shoot some frames. K.

Lovely Nettar. I have a Nettar 515 (6x4.5) with the same lens, which performs wonderfully. You got a real bargain, and if you're not already addicted to folding cameras, I expect you will be soon.

Here are my folders, all in regular use.
