Thanks, LesDMess. A new version with a setup shot.
Another amazing "garage studio" shot, tuco. Very creative (and a little disturbing... made my hands sweat just thinking about that lens slipping from them)! Thanks for the setup photo as well... quite jealous of your product shot skillz!

It almost looks like you know what you are doing!! I think I would have the floor lined with pillows just in case the string broke.

Nice garage set-up and well done ! J

I really appreciate you providing the setup shot too. So now, not only is it a great concept and brilliant execution, but it is also educational! Seemingly a simple thing for the casual observer until you know what it took.

Thanks, you guys. Yes, I was very nervous about it hanging there. I'm always bumping a stand or something durning these shots. And they take way longer to do than you might think. It is a lot of work.

After a few shots which look more like high-end camera erotica than camera porn, here are a couple of shots at the Hustler end of the camera porn scale. Yeah, the models are getting on a bit and they're not exactly Miss Universe but they still have what it takes...


1000/8 Reflex Takumar for 6x7

and if that isn't big enough for you how about an old Kodak 8x10?

Great Caesar's Ghost that's a behemoth! Anything that makes a Pentax 6x7 look small dangling off the end of it has got to be ridiculous--although I suppose smaller than a non-mirror 1000 would be--and heavy. I had to go look it up: it's a 1-stone lens, and allegedly they're quite rare. Where'd you get this outrageous thing?

eBay - where else? It is completely ridiculous (minimum focus distance of 35m!) and the postage was enormous but it was still cheaper than a 600/4 and on a par price-wise with it's 35mm counterparts, the 1000/11 reflex and 1000/8 SMC. I was surprised to get it having made what I thought was a lowball bid, but I guess either nobody else collects 6x7 gear or they were waiting for a pristine version with caps and case. I never envisaged owning one of these given their rarity, but when it came up I thought I would have a half-hearted crack at it and ended up the high bidder. Kind of a once-in-a-lifetime thing so there aren't really any regrets even though it is a bit of a white elephant .

What a score on that lens! Makes my 67 300mm look compact. I'd think a collector would be the one wanting a pristine version with caps and all. The general public wanting telephoto for actual use have alternatives today with greater reach for the size leaving a few still willing to haul something like that around and still shoot film, I suspect.

Wow! fantastic product photograph as always. I do prefer this version with the background gradient, very interesting to see your studio set up and how you created that soft background.

If any lens is worth all the work it would have to be this one...what a gem. Going on your D600?

Wow!

I really don't know how I ended up on this page...but!
Have to say, I just love that reflex 1000/8! What makes it for me is that little aiming knob on top of that thing. That will hount me in my dreams...

Yeah, maybe I'm an oddity amongst collectors in that I real don't need to own pristine versions of everything. Indeed, most of my K and M cameras are non-working pieces bought from KEH when they still sold the broken units from their website. The are only going to sit in a display case so they don't need to work. Still, I expected more competition because this is such a rare lens. Beggars can't be choosers when this stuff comes around.

I think next full moon I might have to pop it on a tripod with the 67->K and K->Q adapters and see how it performs

Well that's a relief. If I start Oly I not only have an entire new universe of LBA opportunities, I also have to talk to my brother. Thankfully he got took the F1 system when my father died so I only have to deal with Pentax.
Have you used the Canon F1 and the Pentax LX? Having used both, which is superior?
