Re: FREE camera repair course texts

You are t.h.e. m.a.n.!!!

Found it here, other brand cheaper for about 3 bucks a can. It's spray form so still difficult to apply to tiny pieces, if used over the pieces the grease would just move from one part to another, still need to rub the dirtiness with cotton or tissue...

I had this lens with the Clarovid 6x9, it’s a triplet, good lens or at least the one I got.

Re: FREE camera repair course texts

I agree with Phil, first for the level of work (non pro) lighter fluid is enough, you can clean the small remains after with a lens tissue, shutter blades for example.
Second I don’t know how to find that thing here :)

Re: Retina II exercise

Now I have one Retina type 118, the second in the line, still need to work with it since I’m not 100% sure I collimated it correctly, few time now for camera repairs.

Re: Retina II exercise

That’s is a nice camera! You are right about the film transport of a IIa, mine had problems with counting frames.

Nice photos, Phil, happy you eyesight is back :)

Re: Mist and Fog

Beautiful photos, Graham!
Fog is one of the things I can’t try because there’s very few here living on/next to a city.

I like the most those with sea and mist.
