Omg, this is a non-stop and I already have in a queue the Zorki and an Ikoflex, plus the final fit for the 530...
This evening I saw an ad of a Bessa RF 6x9 for less than 100 USD, truly I was 5 minutes looking for fakes and when a friend phone the seller was quiet strange, even from being a local... So I realise that the seller was the same I took the Super Ikonta 530 (his grandpa died and he was selling his cameras). Trusted source!! I came 30 min early to the meeting reading as much as I could about that camera and how to check it...
For parts: Lenses are awesome, no flaws at all, nothing, zero, niente, nada!
Speeds sounded good, now at home I checked and 400 are 210, 200 are 125 and the rest are nailed!!
The shutter release... Goodness!! Feels sooooo good, if you never tried the side shutter release from a VG I think you are missing a lot!
Bellows, looked nice, but at home I found two tiny stars, I discovered the actual bellows are glued to the back, Im going to save some money and contact Sandeha for a quotation.
Blades: Dry, nice, all.
Interior: dust and a bit dirty... qtips ready...
Rangefinder: Needs to be fixed. Yay!
Leather: Dry, needs some kiwi and cocoa virgin oil
Im planning to do a test shoot this week, even with the two micro holes... Cant wait...
Welcome to the new lady:
Yes, that is Heliar lens
