  • My Humble RF family

    Since we're sharing RF stuff now. Here's my "collection" of RF bodies. Price ranges for the bodies pictured here are US$30 to US$500.

    From left to right: Kiev 4AM (1980), Voigtlander Bessa R2 (2002), Graflex Crown Graphic (1947), Voigtlander Bessa R2A (2004), and Yashica Lynx 14E (196.

    All are fully mechanical except the Bessa R2A, which has an electronic shutter. The Bessa R2, Bessa R2A, and Lynx 14E all have TTL metering. With the exception of the Lynx, which has a built-in 50/1.5 lens, all the RFs pictured above have interchangeable lenses...LTM mount for the Kiev, M mount for the Bessas, and whatever fits in the lensboard for the Crown Graphic.

        The Crown Graphic? The gold standard for the press (and the standard US army issue camera) for the 40s, 50s, and into the 60s.

        4x5" film goodness with a coupled rangefinder.

                  Is this a Range Finder? I got this Pearl River camera long time ago. The camera magazine is still loaded with a roll of film. There is no focus ring??? Can someone throw some light on how best I can use this camera.

                    No, that one isn't. However, some 120 bellows cameras in the same "family" were...I used to have a Seagull 201 that was.

                      thats a nice cam

                      i suppose the focusing scale is located on the front of the lens, where it nearby with the aperture setting if i not mistaken

                      usually bellows kind of cam get focus while the bellows in and out. there will be no measurement or spilt screen allow u to see the focusing but u need to guess the distance by yourself or best is do hyperfocal

                      is the cam shutter still working good? let me know if u keen to let go or maybe another MF outing can bring it out to have fun

                      PS:i've been eying on a great condition such voigtlander kind of brand

                          Very nice combination you have there. Are those Bessa Voigtlander hook onto the Rapid T-Winder or just the normal handle grip ?

                          What lense you used with the Bessa ?

                          4x5 sheet film . Able to obtain in Malaysia ?

                            Thanks

                            Both the Bessa R2 (olive) and the Bessa R2A (grey) are fitted with the t-winders.

                            90% of the time I have the CV 35/1.4 SC on the R2A and it loaded with Tri-X and the CV 28/1.9 Ultron on the R2 and it loaded with PanF 50. I currently have:

                            CV 15/4.5 Heliar
                            CV 21/3.5 Skopar
                            CV 28/1.9 Ultron
                            CV 35/1.4 Nokton Classic S.C.
                            Jupiter-8
                            CV 50/1.5 Nokton
                            Industrar-61 LD
                            CV 75/2.5 Heliar
                            CV 90/3.5 Lanthar

                            I've owned but sold:
                            CV 35/2.5 Skopar (first version)
                            CV 35/1.7 Ultron

                            I'm looking to sell the 90 since I never use it so if you know anyone who's interested, let me know

                            I live in Taipei and can get some films in the Poi Ai Rd./Han Kou St. area of the city. Currently I have 3 boxes (25pc) of ERA 100 and 3 boxes (25pc) HP5+ all bought over the Internet.
