some of the more interesting normal lenses - I was looking at the effect of multi coating - and how well the de-yellowing had gone.

That looks like a late-model 4. I've a 4 with lugs but it has a shutter capping problem - other than that I love it. (But that's a big "other than")

I've a 4K, but I really don't care for the feel of it as much. The differences are minimal so I dunno what it is. It has a hole in the rubber backing of the curtain which I filled with liquid e-tape as best I could but still have not run another roll through it since. I really should.... except the R3m sorta got in the way.

Got to love the Helios 103 53/1.8. It is a little prone to flare, but I like mine enough that I bought a Amadeo adapter ($$) just to allow use on my Bessa R3M. Even at the combined price point, better than other options.

Hey Steve - do you have any comparison shots at all of your Helios-103 vs black Jupiter-8 on the Bessa?

No, though that is a real good idea and a good way to finish the roll in the camera.

Not here in Palo Alto. But it is both a wonderful group of equipment, and a beautiful photograph of them. Amongst all this equipment around here, let's not forget the photography.

Hi everyone,

I'm experiencing a little problem with two of my cameras (one KX and one K2). The ring inside the mount that reads the aperture set on the lens has trouble making his way back toward f/22. It's very responsive for low apertures although. I wonder if some kind of oil applied without dessambling the mount could fix it ? If yes which product ? Or, from your experience, is it a problem related to the spring inside ?

Thanks

If the aperture rings are becoming stiff from years of dust and old grease, chances are the shutter mechanism will also be becoming gummed up with the same.
I think its time to have them sent off for a Clean,Lubricate,Adjust service, as they probably have never been serviced since new.
If your can't find someone in France to service your camera's, I used Harrow Technical in London, who did a good job sorting my KX with the same problems yours has.

I finished the custom cover upgrade on my Zenobia 645. When I was in Spokane, I noticed that the front side paper covers were loose and I was going to lose them eventually. I removed them, and decided to use Mahogany wood veneer to replace the black paper.









The DOF scale makes zone focus so much easier!!

Nice work. Gives a whole new perspective on the term "box camera."

Nice work on the Zenobia 645. I just picked up one of these that could use a new covering. But it first needed a lens cleaning so it is off to see Jurgen (certo6) atm.
