Hi all,

A new arrival and with this one I can consider myself a 6x9 collector.

Already CLAd and ready to shoot, the camera is in pretty good condition, speed are awesome, congrats who serviced the camera 400 is 250!! and the rest after 100 are perfect, lens and rangefinder are perfectly collimated.

Only one issue, there is a design problem? on this camera, the lens goes 2mm back when closed making some marks on the film plane.
I will try to solve it eventually, so far the test roll went well but I wouldn't wind the camera closed, not on this or any folding camera.
What makes it goes so back are the two holders for the shutter plane that they push the shutter down, I will try to move the shutter 2mm to the left so they can avoid this but I'm afraid it can't be possible.
The workaround of this problem is to not leave the camera loaded long time and never ever wind it closed.

First roll, another "on the snow" theme and again Tsaritsyno Park, next weekend I hope I go to another park so you don't get bored with same subjects.

Tsaritsyno palace panorama.

The Tsaritsyno pine.

Tsaritsyno tower.

Giants.

Chilly wind day.

Conclusion is the camera is veeeery comfortable to hold, focus and shoot, I would like the have the ever-ready-case and I will start looking for it.
Not good was the choosing ASA100 roll for a dull day, all photos were from f/4.5 to f/6.3 with 1/100 or 1/50sec hand holding, so I can expect better results in a sunny day or higher speed films stoping down a bit more.

Thank you for watching.
Alex

One of my favorite formats, Alex, and you have produced some fine images with the Weltur. It kind of reminds me of what the Weltini could have been if they'd have used a bit more fertilizer at the factory. ;-)

It also looks infinitely easier to handle than the Weltini, though the family resemblance stands out in the rangefinder.

Thank you, Phil.
Now I have to ask about the fertilizer thing you wrote... :) what happened?

Good for you, Alex, that is a nice folder with a worthy lens.

Indeed, never wind any folder when closed.

:lol: That's a euphemism, Alex, for saying the Weltini was just too small, i.e. that it didn't get enough nourishment on the assembly line.
