Pimp My Cam

In an earlier thread Nesster suggested camera portraits of our film cams. I kind of liked it. Let's take it up a notch in the cam porn field to include all those attachments and things that actually look kind of cool in a retro way.

My MX is about as tricked out as I intend to make it. Dial Data MX and winder.





Let's not forget the extension bellows and AF 200S flash.

Nice, you can never have too much stuff on your camera. Look really nice on the bellows.

Beauty Tom. The MX with the attached winder, is now close in size to your K2!! I like the Auto Bellows as well.

Thanks Phil,

If I get the MX bulk film magazine we should be all the way there.

Cheers

Thanks Ash,

It does look pretty cool. That said I can't remember the last time I used it. I've been shooting manly telephoto of late. I should take a day and get reaqauinted with the bellows. As I recall you can get some pretty serious close ups with it.

All that's left to do is to replace the leather on the camera. Or you could go the extreme route and repaint the chrome.

Still that's one tricked out MX.
