Thrift store p0rn ...

Bonjour,

Just found this Zeiss Ikon Voigtlander Icarex 35 S BM (with a CZ Tessar 2.8/50) at my local thrift store. Great condition, but the shutter will fire 9 times out of 10 at the end of the frame advance movement ... wondering if it's worth a fix ... any input? Merci d'avance, J

Can't believe this thread is not tagged "NSFW", some pictures here are really provocative.
Are these from your 'boudoir' collection?

Beautiful limiteds! Lots of great stuff in here from everyone.

Time to move up-format for a bit

My Super Graphic 4x5 and a friend's Century Graphic 6x9:




And my recently completed project, my Gundlach Korona 8x10 field camera, with Fujinon 300mm f/5.6 in Copal 3:










I believe this is where I can officially say, "Mine's bigger than yours." Super and Century Graphics shot with Samsung Galaxy SIII, Korona shot with Sony RX100.

I do feel a piker here with my 3 lowly *X's.

After the de-acquistioning they'll be all I have left.

There is nothing "lowly" about three of the best manual focus 35mm SLRs ever made. Especially not the LX!

Well, your post was about size, not service.

Field camera? That is a beast!

I just started shooting medium format, but hope to try 4x5 sometime in the future. Not sure if I will make it up to 8x10. Beautiful cameras

I'm entertaining myself:



6 3/8" Focus Wollensak F4.5 Enlarging Velostigmat -> gaffer taped to M42 barrel -> Pentax Bellows II -> M42/EOS adapter -> EOS/NEX tilt adapter -> NEX C3

Of course pre-NEX the last three components were replaced by a M42/K -> Pentax. But then, I can do M42/NEX -> NEX as well. However, then I don't get the tilt

The Pentaxes (I know there's a Ricoh and the K-x is digital, but it would have ended up with just the lonely Spotmatic if I didn't group them together)




The Minoltas



The oddballs (neither work)



All together
