Nice view cameras.

My homemade wooden lens case for the lens shown. It's made from African Padauk and Glacier Maple.


Well if that isn't classy as all get-out. Nicely done!

Beautiful! Now you need a case for your case.

what model is this ? I know the petri brand, but i've never seen anything that come close to something that well made !
Because the poster has not replied, that's a Petri 19 ColorSuper introduced 1960. Took me about 15 minutes to track it down on line.

The other day, a nice and inexpensive SV (body only) came my way. snop Contrary to conventional wisdom, it has a 6-digit serial number (= older model) but an orange R on the rewind knob (= newer model with the mirror modification). snip Maybe the part has been replaced. As I suspected, and confirmed with careful testing, the mirror does indeed collide with the 8-element Super-Takumar 1.4/50mm. What a pity. Other than that, I'm really happy with it.
Interesting and timely. I have an SV with serial number 969033 but also with an orange R on the dial. I have an 8-element ST50/1.4 in transit, a nice 7-element and several low serial ST55/1.8's (as well as a number of later normals - older friends just drop their gear off on my doorstep from time to time). I had hoped to use the 1.4's on the SV but I suppose they'll have to stay on the later M42 bodies.

How did you test for the mirror collision?

Thank you. I don't understand why some people post a photo that they consider may interest others, yet don't think it is interesting enough to say anything about it. Even knowing how things have been acquired can satisfy curiosity.

Carefully!
First, I covered the back lens with a round piece of easy-to-remove tape. I set the camera body to B and opened the shutter/flipped up the mirror, then I screwed in the lens, set to infinity, and "un-released" the shutter. This was enough to prove that the mirror was hanging instead of freely moving back. I don't remember how I proceeded from there, but now I think in order to avoid touching the mirror with the pin or somehow exerting pressure on it, it would be best to open the shutter again before removing the lens.

Beautiful camera shots.

Do you have internal and lid detail views? This idea intrigues me.

That's all I took. But I can take one with the lid off later and post it. The cap fits over an inner tube by about an inch for a snug fit.

EDIT

@stevebrot here is a shot with the lid off.

Cool! I am impressed. I bet there is a market for this sort of thing.
