Often simply written as "W/NW" - your favorite photos. Explain them, or let your photos (film or digital) speak for themselves.

Lovely! But isn't it a little small for you, Scott?

I have that uncoated, front-focusing Solinar on my Billy zero. Hardly used it though; it gets impossibly tight to wind half-way through every roll of film; I think it must be something to do with the dimensions of modern 127 spools.

Minolta Semi, old 645 that still rokkors. A pity that modern 120 rolls have a different diameter, so the auto counter is not really helpful.

Can't believe I missed this yesterday! Better a day late...

Beautiful work on the back, Scott, how did you make the springs?

Hi Robert,

The springs were salvaged from a broken Graflex spring back the came with the camera, and the glass clips are Tansu screen clips from Lee Valley. I am no good at metalwork...

Excellent adaptive reuse, then! I like Tansus, too. And Lee Valley, for that matter...

Robert
