That 35ti is really cool. I want one. Unfortunately, they seem to be pretty pricey and I've hit my limit on photography related things unless I one, can get another job, or two, makes some money with said equipment. Neither of these is realistic.
Definitely some cool factor in it but the lens is quite sharp!

Very nice looking camera! Is it powered by steam? It looks like something a steampunk photographer might like.
I can see what you mean . . .

My family can't figure out what to get me for my birthdays/Christmas anymore, so they usually hand me money and let me get what I want. This year I decided to spend some of the money on a Rolleiflex. This little guy arrived yesterday. If I didn't know what year it was made, I would not have guessed it was a 60 year old camera. The film spool in it is a metal Kodak one, and from the info I found, they stopped using metal spools since at least the 70s. I'm guessing it was stored in its case for a long time.



Here it is next to my Yashica 635. I'm going to have to get used to the ergonomics of the Rolleiflex, since the film advance and focus knobs are all on one side on the Yashica. The attention to detail in the Rollei makes it feel a little more substantial than the Yashica, but that's not to say the Yashica isn't a competent camera.

Alas I have not been able to score a proper TLR but not for lack of trying either!

Thanks! I'm looking forward to trying it out this morning if this bleeding RAIN would ever stop. Three straight days is enough!

I took a last-minute overnight trip to Rochester over the weekend to visit some friends and had an extra hour to kill at the end, so we went to the George Eastman House and Museum. Since our visit was unplanned, I only had my k-3 with a 35 Limited Macro on it with me (no filters/tripods/etc.). Due to my gear limitations, the low light in the museum, and my desire not to annoy my friends, I only took a few quick snaps, but I thought a few might be of interest for this thread!


Early Reflex Cameras


Enormous early portrait camera


Ground glass screen for same



Large Portrait lens of type used on this sort of camera



Case full of Leicas


Leica with Noctilux f/1 lens



Early Kodak portable cameras



World's first digital camera



Camera assembly from lunar orbiter



World's first photocopier


Panavision Cinema Cam

I just wanted to add that in the museum's main photo gallery, there was a very sad and haunting show of photographs of empty/abandoned/demolished film and analog photography manufacturing facilities and offices, and the devastation to the communities left behind as the industry dried up.
It not only included photos of Kodak facilities in Rochester, but also AGFA facilities in Germany, Canadian facilities, etc.

I was tempted by getting an A lens especially to change the the look of the camera (ok I'm boring) and I like the pentaprism without hot shoe, but it appears it's hard to procure.
Congratulations on your find. The LX is a beauty. I have the later version, which I bought used a few years ago.

Personally I prefer the M lenses just for the looks. The chrome ring just makes them so much prettyer than the later A lenses. Just for that, I stocked up on M lenses instead of A lenses, although I knew they would be more or less useless when I eventually went digital. On my newly bought K20D I can only use them in manual mode. (I hope some day Pentax will release a body with uncrippled mount, but I'm afraid they never will)

So, IMHO you should get M lenses for you LX. It looks much nicer with them. :-)
