I like to be taught about your country history in such way, reading is one thing, watching how people was doing in that time is much more educational.

This is an inspiration. I have a Konica III that needs to be exercised.

This is a document of the Centennial celebrations, which included the monument to the unknown soldiers pictured here.
A military parade coming down the street (named 24 de Mayo) with the monument in the background and many bystanders perfectly captured.
The monument is the column with the Condor; the column is long gone, and the condor was replaced by a fake one that stands now on a small mound
This was a negative and I have stitched the 2 sides of the stereo glass plate

I rememeber the Hexanon lenses in a Leica mount RF (late 90s) that were top notch

It's easy to handle. Advancing to the next frame doesn't feel precise, but I never encountered any problems with overlapping frames. It doesn't shout, "Look at me!"
It's just a good old school camera.

As part of my struggle to fund the last bit of the mandolin I want, I decided to list the Konica I rangefinder I fixed up years ago:
Been up for a few days. No bites. Drat.
Then I starts in to looking at it more. Always dangerous. Everything works perfectly. Only flaw is a chip in the front covering. Just looked, and when I ordered new coverings from Hugo Studio a number of years ago (the camera came without back coverings) I got the front piece as well, just never installed it. Done. Also started in to looking at some of the pictures I've gotten with this little rangefinder:
That's it. I'm sold. Withdrawing the ad. I'mma keep this one. Have it loaded up with TMAX 400 right now - taking it for some walks around town this weekend (splitting time with some as-yet undecided TLR). The mandolin, unfortunately, will have to wait a little longer.
Thanks for looking, there will be more to come soon, hopefully.

Yes, Hugo Studio have good materials, I have used them a couple of times and they are really good coverings.What a find! I am impressed by that lens cleaning.Thanks guys. I can't remember how the ad was worded but they didn't give any hint that the glass was so bad. I was very pleased with how it cleaned up.
Alex, I've used Hugo Studio once before, for my Konica I. Was happy then. I sent an inquiry to them about the Rollei last night, will see what they say.

Rolleiflex "New" Standard, Tessar taking lens. Not an automat, but but easy enough to set the first frame. Bought this, geez, not even sure when. I cleaned up the shutter and it's still running perfectly. The glass was in the worst shape of any lens I've ever dealt with:
Cleaned up well though.
I originally fixed this up to be a user for my son. He used it exactly once. Not his thing. Fine, it's mine now. Need to figure out new coverings - I think Hugo Studio may be able to make a covering for this model.
I'm rediscovering a love of TLRs lately - I'm looking forward to running some film through this'n.

I've had this camera since, I think, 2007. In/around 2010 I tore it completely apart to fix the shutter for good, and to rectify a problem with the film advance. It's been purring along since, though I have only used about once ever second or third year for the past while. I'm hoping to fix that. Too bad nelsonfoto went belly up - I had a whole ton of repair exploits documented there.

I would not be surprised if Agfa got some help from Voigtländer or perhaps bought parts from them for all their higher end cameras other than the simpler 'cookie tin' Isolettes and Billys. But that's a wild guess.

f.ex. the Nagel Recomar cameras (amongst others) were rebranded Kodak Recomar after Kodak purchased the Dr.August Nagel factory.
It's a similar story with ICA cameras (and others) that were rebranded Zeiss Ikon after the merger, but remained otherwise more or less unchanged technically.
