Finally finished off a roll had sitting in my Holga for who knows how many months. This is one of the better results.

Not the first Lomochrome Purple roll I've shot, but the first that wasn't ruined by a too loose wind around the takeup spool. Haven't had that problem with any other films in these cameras, which leaves me to wonder about the Lomography in particular.

Yep. Back when I had some, I held out on using it until sunny days due to it being a lower speed film. That turned out to mostly be a mistake.

Trying to remember the episode, but at some point early-ish in Midsomer Murders one of the crime scene photographers is using a Pentax 67. It's mostly notable as anyone familiar with the camera will immediately be able to tell that the extra was told to just pretend to take photos — there's a silence to the shutter that even Leica users would envy. :lol:

Just going from memory, since it's been a while since I owned a Jupiter-37A, but you should be safe:
  • It's a manual aperture lens, so no aperture pin to worry about.

  • The rear element is a fair distance up the lens body itself. Since nothing sticks out beyond mount threads, there's nothing to interfere with the open aperture linkage.

Yeah. Lomography's marketing text can be a bit overwrought at times. (And I say this even liking some of their films!)

Not entirely certain on the lens here. I know it was 58mm, but can't recall if it was the Topcon 58/1.8 that came with the R III or a Meyer 58/1.9. I'm tempted to say the Topcon, as the Meyer tends to be a bit glowier wide-open and this definitely was wide open or close to it.

I've now shot 3 rolls of Metropolis, and this is the first photo that I've felt was worth posting. To say that I don't like the film would be an understatement and I've still got 2 more rolls in the fridge.

That's either quite old or quite recent; I recognize that building & recall that it was a Starbucks back in the spring. :lol:

No idea what lens this was. I had a macro lens in my bag for this day, but I was also fooling around quite a bit with a set of tubes & no longer recall which this was. (It could even have been a combination of both, but I doubt it.)

The Horizon 202 at least keeps the bottom-mounted handle from the earlier Soviet Horizont, so keeping my left hand out of frame has never been a problem. But I've definitely taken unplanned photos of my right hand more than once.

A non-panoramic photo. I'd have liked a slightly deeper depth of field, but the film was expired enough that even a snail was too much movement on the longer exposures.

I take a vertical shot probably once every few rolls and then never do anything with the results because yeah, way too funky. The lack of anything that it could distort too badly helped here.

Taking a portrait-orientation shot with a swing lens can be a bit of a gamble but I like how this one turned out.

I'll probably post a few more from either this or the other roll I ran through it the other week once I've finished going through them.

I wasn't too impressed with the shots some friends had taken at 400, but I may have to try that and see if I like what I get.

1963? That's practically new! :lol:

Any idea on what emulsion it might be?

Edit: apparently a custom paper-based negative, according to this link

I've got a folder that I also need to patch up. What do you normally use for fixing the bellows?

They had to have though, which makes the decision even more inexplicable. The Canon VT, released just 3 years before the Canonflex, used a Leicavit-style base plate advance. They tried that out, then decided that they wanted something less ergonomic.

I can only chalk it up to there being something that was affecting camera designers in 1959. That's the same year that KW released the Practika IV, which also featured a base plate thumb advance.

I've managed to do that with my Pilot Super. It also has a spinning shutter speed dial, except it's mounted on the side of the camera. I've more than once kept my fingers too close to the sides and turned my 1/200 into something closer to 1/20. :o

Rare enough that they don't even have a photo of it on that beauty shot image.

At least, I couldn't spot it there.

Oh neat. Going back to an earlier forum discussion: one of their photos shows the lens mount removed, exposing the bayonet mount that was used to attach other camera mounts.

The seller's description that you've quoted here is correct. The earliest "Made In Japan" models are identifiable by two main features: that little bump you see by the screw near the rewind crank and the serial number being engraved on the top plate.

Whether they're new or old, they're still great photos.
