Re: Retina II exercise

I have about ten of them in different variations. But like most of my cameras they haven't gotten much use lately.

Re: FREE camera repair course texts

I have noticed Ronsonal will leave something behind, but it doesn't seem to affect the workings of the shutter. True, contact cleaner is probably better, but more expensive.

Re: Retina II exercise

Yes, those are nice cameras, and it's great you can use it again, Julio.

I've been doing so much moving stuff around I sometimes lose track of what camera is where, and which ones are loaded or have a good battery charge.

You mean you forget what you're doing while you're doing it?
I'll tell you about it in a PM.

Re: More B&W from my archives

I was known to use a few rolls of Verichrome Pan myself, Graham. But by the time I got serious about medium format they quit selling it.

That Lomo fisheye shot is superb.....
Thanks, Graham. I probably should have kept it, but it was missing the external viewfinder so I gave it away.

Re: ZEISS/IKON NIXE 551/17

According to the Camera-Wiki you have the Nixe A which took 122 roll film, or 9x12cm plates http://camera-wiki.org/wiki/Nixe

The part number for the 9x12cm plate holder is 726/7. And, no, the 4x5 plate holder will not fit.

Re: GAS

That would be $1.00/1954 = $9.55/2020 which in your case the total is $954.82, Pablo. I think I only paid $80.00 for mine in '73, then only got about half that in trade-in value. But I couldn't pass up the Nikkormat I got in the deal.
