    James,
    you’re a machine! I can’t believe how fast you get through a film and process and scan it. This is great. How are you finding the Canon? I’ve long-admired them.
    Regards

  • Brett, thanks for the comment. The Canon has been firing great since I adjusted it. In addition to the 50mm FD lens I also found an earlier 35mm f2.5 FL lens for pennies. Since it is older it doesn’t provide its aperture info to the camera and uses stop down metering, which is no problem. The F-1 is a bit heavy compared to the “compact” Contaflex I but it is still a pleasure to use as are all these old cameras. James

    I have to agree with Brett – you’re a shooting machine! It can take me a month to get through a 24 roll. I have a Canon A-1 collecting dust in the basement, I might get it out.

  • Geoff, Thanks for the comment. The Canon F-1 has been a joy to use. I got it with lenses for pennies since it had a shutter issue, but luckily I found and fixed the linkage that was hanging up, and it has been working nice for a couple of rolls now. My latest project is a Konica Autoreflex T similar to the camera I had 40 years ago. It has a small string going over numerous pulleys that couple the shutter, aperture and meter together, and it has been a challenge to re-thread it again. Hopefully I will get a roll into that one next week. James
