Rangefinders

Rangefinder cameras of various brands

Mamiya 35 Executive

As well as being roll 22 and 24 of my 36, this is also a review on another new to me camera; the Mamiya 35 Executive.

I am not really sure why I bought this as I have several other 35mm rangefinders two of which are very good and my ‘favourite’ brand.  But Mamiya is also a trusted brand for me and when browsing recently to find a replacement for my soon-to-be-dead Mamiya C330, I stumbled across this.  It wasn’t cheap so I can’t use that to justify my purchase.

I didn’t actually know that Mamiya made 35mm rangefinders and so seeing this, I was intrigued.  Continue reading “Mamiya 35 Executive”

The Thirty Six: Film #11 with Petri 2.8

I took this roll during the Beers and Cameras photo walk the same day as the last roll (here) but this time it was 35mm Fomopan 100 and I was using it to test my newly acquired Petri Rangefinder; this post is also a review of that camera.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have been intrigued by Petri for a few months particularly since readying this post on 35mmc not too long ago.  Then browsing Goodwill I spotted this one and hey presto! for very little investment it was mine. Continue reading “The Thirty Six: Film #11 with Petri 2.8”

Cameras: Voigtländer Vitoret LR

I got this only a week or so ago thanks to Jim Grey’s thinning of the herd.   I couldn’t wait to try it out and took it to Hermosa Beach last weekend with a roll of Kodak ColorPlus film (which I have no recollection of buying).

First impressions on getting this is it sits somewhere between my Vitomatic and the Vitessa 500 SE ElectronicContinue reading “Cameras: Voigtländer Vitoret LR”

Cameras: Voigtländer Prominent

I got this and another couple of cameras recently and, for the first time in a long time, I feel like “That’s it I am done buying, it’s not going to get any better than this.”

I have had the Prominent on my list of desirable cameras for some time but prices have always been above what I was willing to pay.  Now I know that apparently, reasonably priced Prominents are like buses; you wait ages and two turn up at the same time. Continue reading “Cameras: Voigtländer Prominent”

Cameras: Contax III with Kiev 2.0

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I picked this up a while ago and only recently got around to trying it. Originally I got this as a body only and subsequently bought a Kiev lens just to be able to use it; if I liked it I would think about something more original.  Continue reading “Cameras: Contax III with Kiev 2.0”

Cameras: Voigtlander Bessa RF

I got this recently and love it so it’s jumped to the top of my list for reviewing.

Continue reading “Cameras: Voigtlander Bessa RF”

Cameras: Yashica Electro 35

I actually have two of these; an older G (pictured above) and a later GSM (below).  The GSM came with a job lot of cameras I bought and is in fully working condition.  The older one is also in good condition but the exposure control doesn’t appear to be quite working Continue reading “Cameras: Yashica Electro 35”

Cameras: Fed-3

This is a Russian made copy of a Leica and even though it is a copy it is very solidly made.   If you want to try out rangefinder style cameras with interchangeable lenses these are a good introduction and have some following in their own right but can still be found pretty cheap. Continue reading “Cameras: Fed-3”

Cameras: Voigtlander Vitomatic

This is my first post first post trying to document my camera collection in a little more detail and I thought I would start with one of my favourites. I am a fan of Voigtlanders and have 5 in my collection.  This was my second one and my first Rangefinder. Continue reading “Cameras: Voigtlander Vitomatic”

35mm Film Shootist

Hi I'm Martin Smith, a amateur photographer that likes to shoot solely film. I use black & white with the odd colour image thrown in and mainly use a Leica M4-2 with Summicron 35mm and 50mm lenses. I tend to shoot anything I like, objects, scenes, landscape or street life.
