Re: Les Gediman needs some help finding an old post

Great job - I'm sure that he'll be really pleased to learn that. Do you still have his e-mail address? If not, I can PM you with it.

He said Claudia is still doing well and turns 91 next Saturday (Aug. 31, 2019).

Re: A summer without sun - Agfa Super Isolette.

In the world of folding cameras, the Super Isolette sometimes is forgotten. We often hear about the Isolette III. The Super Isolette took the design one step farther and made for an excellent camera. The Solinar is always a good performer.

I also think that the phone booth photo is very cool.

Les Gediman needs some help finding an old post

Today, I received an e-mail from Les Gediman, and he is looking for some help in locating a photo of a document that he thinks he might have posted on nelsonfoto. I lost or misplaced an important MIT commendation for my work on the Apollo Program. It was framed under glass and given to me shortly af...

Re: Fujifilm XE-2s goes to London Town

Graham, those are nice photos. I was particularly impressed by the one taken through the train window. The framing of that shot also is nice, and the people add a nice element in the foreground.

Re: My grandpa's pictures

What is wonderful about all of these photos is the history behind them. Unfortunately, our current love of digital by today's folks (regardless of age) makes me wonder if there will be enough or any boxes of family photos for someone to enjoy long after we are gone. I know that most of us are leavin...

Leica and 'The Hunt' video

This Leica marketing video was titled, "The Hunt." This video was created to show that Leica cameras are used in all situations around the world. This video mentioned the Tiananmen Square incident in 1989, and it didn't take long before Leica disavowed the video. The video no longer exists online. L...

Well, that just makes me scratch my head a lot. :shock:

I couldn't get it to show up for me - no matter what I did. Software can be so aggravating at times.

Re: Meyer-Optik Trioplan adapted for digital

Last year, I took it up to New York City, attached to the Sony A7 II. It was a very dreary day and rained most of the time that I was out. a7II_trioplan_01.jpg I'm still pondering putting it back on the work bench and using the Dremel to remove the square corners. a7II_trioplan_02.jpg a7II_trioplan_...
