Richard,
It seems your Minolta is able to compensate for the higher voltage in a linear way by adjusting the ISO. Lucky you :). I had a chat a while back with a camera repair guy who said some...

Robot-Berning model II, Biotar lens

I have inherited my father's little German-made Robot-Berning model II camera that he used from the '50s through the '70s. If you're familiar with this camera, it shoots 24x24mm frames on 135 film,...

...or 1/10th the price of the camera at the present market value :D, depending on your perspective. Either way, 45 total investment in a 35T is still a heck of a deal. :)

This is an excellent little camera with a very sharp, contrasty Tessar lens. No need to bin it or sell it. As Nick said, it's all-mechanical, manual exposure, match needle metering. There are no...

Rob,
Try PanF at 25 in Perceptol 1+1. Some of my best images have been with this combination. Being in Canada, I shoot a lot in winter, and I have no hesitation using this combo on a sunny, snowy...

Interesting is right :)

From the weighing of your spoon measures it looks like everything is about 20% shy of the grams recipe, except for borax which is +50%. That's a pretty significant...

Terry, did you ever figure this one out? I'm curious what the cause was, if you got to the bottom of it.

That is indeed puzzling Terry. I'm scratching my head on this one. If you hadn't done the leader test I would say to look at your camera. Is there anything unusual about the films you're using?...

Gee Terry...this is indeed baffling. Since the D72 that you mixed up also contains HQ, it seems we can't blame that chemical for being dead. Your metol sounds like it's OK too.

Hi Mike,
You and Mr. Lyon seem to share the same "eye" for mood and emotion :). I do agree, it is quite a striking image. He caught the character and soul of the young man brilliantly. There's a...

Hi Paul,
Not sure why 2-piece would be a problem. The second layer is just a clear sheet with no fresnel. It has no real function I think, except to provide some protection for the delicate fresnel....
