Re: Super Wester Rehab Questions...

Could you frankestein-it with a Prontor from an Isolette?
I guess if the location of the shutter release is the same they could be interchanged?

Re: Ansco Super Regent

Is the Solinette II the same as the Regent? I had it in my head a Regent was analogous to the Solinette. Very nice collection!
