KW Patent Etui.

When medium format isn't big enough: 4x5, 5x7, 9x12, 8x10 and even larger.

KW Patent Etui.

Postby alexvaras » Sun Dec 23, 2018 3:17 pm

Hi all,

A new family member from a collector keeping only his soviet cameras. I hope tomorrow I can show 3 photos taken with it, I made a patch for the 4x5 daylight tank to get the 9x12 I shot with the camera.

If you have any friend in Germany with a lot of free time maybe can help me to locate the heirs of this wedding letter-invitation.

It's in a pretty good shape and the Tessar lens elements are pristine, I can fit here the Heli-Orthar n4, I checked already but first shoots had to be with its lens.

Thank you for watching.

Another fine classic comes out from the shadows. Congrats, Alex, on your latest acquisition.

Info updated about the wedding invitation, it seems Klaus von Wakenitz died during WWI. Let's see if they had any kids and they went through the WWII...

Here are the 3 photos, Ilford Delta 100 expired Apr 2017.

Hand-held, 1/50 sec @f11. Composition made with the reflex viewfinder. Focusing with Leica FOFER rangefinder. I think I got lucky.

First shot with KW Patent Etui.

Table as tripod. 1/2 sec @f6.3, focusing with Leica FOFER rangefinder. Out of focus :(
Image
At the restaurant.

7 seconds @f6.3, it should has been @f8 but I got distracted. Tripod with ground glass focusing. Out of focus :(
The problem could be at the distance difference of the ground glass and the sheath film holder.

Xmas bouquet.

I will continue checking why these two last were out of focus. I would like all as the first shot, a Tessar from 1926 in so nice shape!
Thank you for watching and please comments are welcome.
Alex.
