    Something different. Cheaper than collecting lenses or cameras.
    I bought another Tewe zoom viewfinder, in its box.
    This one goes from 35mm to 135mm. The other one goes up to 200mm. 
    I would like to find one for Robot cameras.

    Old lens and 'old treatment'( Victorian) - one from this afternoon. Subject movement and softer corners are fairly inevitable with such lenses but even here the image is enlarged far beyond the original requirements of its prints (2 x 3" x 3")

    Kaviar certainly. Grubb 1860s Patent stereo lens of 3 3/4" focal length and designed to cover 3" x 3" (approx 75mm x 75mm), mounted onto an LTM Periflex extension tub, in turn  mounted onto E. Leitz New York COOMI Micrometer Extension Tube, with LTM to M adapter, M to L adapter and finally all fitted onto a Leica SL body (phew). The Grubb lens thread is close to but not quite Leica LTM but will screw in well enough. Results can be surprisingly effective and the lens, whilst not as sharp as might be desired today, is no slouch either. These lenses were hand ground and assembled in Dublin and represented the state-of-the-art photographic lenses at the time they were made.

    Try Ilford Perceptol. At 1:3 it is a speed reducing developer and HP5 would be rated at about 250 ISO which is closer to what you exposed it at. Perceptol gives nice smooth low grain negatives.

    interesting camera, Jim. i would agree with you that chrome plating was third party, originally camera should have been black paint IA acc to known list (Band I). Due to technological process BP cameras with engravings filled with Bismut were engraved very shallow, what makes filling with paint almost impossible. Here are engravings deeper, look to me more like engravings on Luxus. Do not missunderstand - I do not say that this was Luxus chromeplated later on, it is just that engravings must have been redone and this is not an easy task. 

    Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. Hallo Gast! Du willst die Bilder sehen? Einfach registrieren oder anmelden! A bit confusing is DOF with "0" - cameras from SN appr 41xxx have DOF, but without "0". It would make sense to check with Leica archive what do they have about this camera.
    Was chrome plating done in 60, 70-ties? At least screws on top plate (flat heads) could indicate this.

    It’s a difficult to find book. I probably paid too much for it. It’s smaller than I expected, 21x15cm, 142 pages and does not cover any of the Japanese made lenses.

    I just bought a Leica 1a in a dull satin chrome finish. Clearly modified from black at some stage and by someone. The lens has the “0” standardised engraving, but I didn’t think standardisation came in until 1931, and this camera has a 1930 serial number.
    I will see if Leitz can offer any history for it.
    Another camera to test with film. I am testing a Leotax F  with three new lenses, 85mm Jupiter, 110mm Chiyoko and 150mm Meyer Tele-Megor,  at the moment but the weather has been overcast and wet so not the best conditions for testing cameras and lenses.

    My first trial 😊. 
    I went with the speed easel and the metal bar in the enlarger. The bars aren’t moving straight anymore. This is why some of the borders vary in sizes. This photo was taken with a 35mm and the image touches the sprocket in some places. I will switch to the easel next round  should be easier (I think).
    Still quite like the way it came out! Thanks a lot everyone!

    Nothing better for Christmas that adding one to my collection of Summaron 3,5 variants  😊 ... and a not so trivial one : the M3 version with glossy paint goggles (so I have now 2 of the 3 goggled variants...  let some time to pass and... 😎)
    Arrived today... focus OK, glass clean... ... but probably CLEANED by the dealer... who remounted the lens group in wrong position... 🙄 around 90° clockwise...

    Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. Hallo Gast! Du willst die Bilder sehen? Einfach registrieren oder anmelden! I dislike the idea of another trip... I think it ought to be rather easy to reposition correctly... not a complex built... probably the whole front group can be removed from the focusing base unscrewing the inner black ring (see the two red arrows) and maybe the 3 screws : no sort of special tools.. I can do with my normal set...
