I took this photo earlier today, ad it's nearly my favorite photo I've ever taken.
My friend John owns a small car dealership along with his wife and twin brother. Th dealership office is a very small, basically 3 room building. John and his brother Bob have the end offices, ad John's wife has the middle room, which serves as the entrance/reception area. The front door is right in the center of the room, and then the doorways to the endrooms are directly right and left from there.
Awhile ago, I noticed that if you're in just the right spot, right in the front doorway, you can just see both John and Bob working at their desks. I had the idea to try and get a photo of all three in a single image.
Today I was down there and had the Widelux with (with one frame left in the camera) and so I decided to try the photo.

I shot this without using a viewfinder (or a meter), handheld at 1/15s and f/11. This is basically the entire frame, no cropping or rotating.

Yes well done, also like the sunlight coming through the back door!

Very nice Colton. Symmetry and asymmetry. I like the dog, too. Those two chairs really reinforce the symmetry, and are like two more characters in the image, and hen there are all the subtleties and differences. Just great. Bravo for the handheld capture! You know what you are doing. I guess the photo on the wall is of John and Bob, too.

That looks like an old one, where was it taken?

Worthy of being in the running for favorite. You even got the dog! Fantastic shot, man.
Thanks Kevin.

That came out very well. Is the Widelux like the Horizon?
Yes, both the Horizon and the Widelux are swing lens panoramic cameras. They very similar but very different, if that makes sense.

Thank you David.
I think the photo on the wall is actually Neal Cassady and someone else.

I never shimmed any of my SU lenses and they all work fine with all my cameras...am I lucky?
Perhaps! The matter has been tossed around the rangefinder forum at length for a number of years and there are multiple articles on the Web regarding such by many reputable people. Here is the summary:
  • The issue is with FSU LTM lenses on non-FSU bodies. FSU lenses on FSU bodies work fine.
  • The full explanation is quite long and is related to the Zeiss vs. Leica standards
  • Apparently the coupling cam on the lens extends at a different rate on the FSU lenses. The result is backfocus at moderate to close distance when these lenses are mounted to German or Japanese LTM or M-mount cameras.
  • The problem is more severe with normal and longer lenses
  • Whether this is true for all FSU LTM lenses is not clear, particularly in regards to those originally sold with the Drug camera
  • The standard solution (pioneered by Brian Sweeney) is to shim the mechanism for the lens rangefinder cam. The details are published various places on the Web.
The difference is readily apparent when comparing the distance scales for the same lens and subject on different cameras. The gold standard (of course) is actual images on film or ground-glass at the film gate. I have a junk SLR body and am planning on scavenging the split-image focus screen from that camera to test my FSU lenses on my Canon P.

This is becoming a great story. Keep them coming. The modern hi tech camping stuff looks a bit daft if you see what people used in those days and where also able to stay dry and warm. The blue tone is magic.
Here's another couple from the same coast trip of my dad and his buddy Al. Some scenic shots. (Again on his Nikkormat Minolta on Ektachrome.)
