Kodak Medalist II

Photographed with a Rolleiflex 3.5E Planar with a Rolleinar II attached, and Ilford XP2.
That Medalist looks industrial grade!

Exacta Varex IIa. In lovely condition with a spotless Pancolar 2/50, it's really really gorgeous.
That really is a piece of art. Sophisticated but not easy to operate.

I sent mine to Knight Camera in Vancouver, Washington.
The repair guy there knows Medalist cameras well.

Thanks. The Medalist II is worth spending the money on.
Though its innards are simple and there is a service manual available for it, I still won't work on any camera that I actually like.

They are superb cameras, definitely worth spending a little for a CLA.
My guess is that if they were 120 and not 620, they'd probably sell for around $1000.
Luckily for us, they're 620

Q; When do you know you have a problem?

A: When you find cases like this in the back of your closet that you don't even remember you had:
