Another gem from your bag of surprises, Alex. I have never heard of this camera before.

Yes it's, 6x6 made in Germany during war time (1939-1941).
Front cell focusing, this lens it's f/4.5 75mm Enna Ennatar (triplet), double exposure system, 4 speeds, 200, 100, 50, 20 and B (fast speeds are halved but stable so pretty good to go), focusing with the original ground glass should be hard, very dim, but someone before me installed a new focus screen with middle split image so it's very quick as it's. I haven't dismounted since everything works fine, only lens cleaning.
Some photos at f/5.6 or f/4.5 will show vignetting.

I thought I already posted but here it's again .
Very fun camera, despite after aperture is pretty dark, framing through the sports finder is very accurate. First focus as SLR with WLF, second shoot as normal SLR.

Alex, show us the camera. That's a medium format camera?

Words/No Words • Re: A Village In The Way

This story of a village about to blow up reminds me to my own village in the north of Spain, Galdakao, being near France and having access to the sea trough Bilbao, Alfred Nobel (yes, that one) founded a factory to make explosives in 1872 in the north and finally established in my small village by the end of XIX century.
Now reading old news I have been present in 3 incidents, one in 1974 (I was 1 year old) with 15 casualties, then in 1983 with another 3 (the father of one school mate died and they moved back to their region after this) and the last one in 1991 with another 4 dead people.
In all explosions the windows and metal fences facing the factory where broken or bended, only one of many departments were affected each time, if all in a row our village wouldn't exist by now.
As you may know in the Basque country we sadly had local (and bloody) terrorism for many years, well we locals could hear the differences types of controlled explosions that in the factory were made than terrorist strike with explosives. When someone out of the village came to live to our town and they were not aware of the factory they were terrified the first time hearing some controlled explosions in a row.
Now many years later and looking back I realise the security was really high and because of that and despite the accidents happened, it could have been much much worst.

Hi all,

I tried a Kodak 400 CW outdated in 2003, I shot it at 200, developed & scanned at the lab.

1/100seconds normally f11 - f16, framed through the sports viewfinder.
Three subjects, one portrait (still awaiting permission to post it) best pics.


Hô-Chi-Minh & Pigeon.


Very fun and straight camera
Thank you for watching,
