Re: Gevaert - museum

Ages ago we used quite some orange (red?) boxed Record-Rapid paper, when one required another touch than the usual but 'too neutral' tint of Ilford RC paper. And some Agfa Contour film too!

Re: CAVIX LEOPARD Tripod and head

Graham, that is beautiful equipment! Well designed and at an unbelievable price too. It makes me want to buy another tripod that I don't need.

Re: Agfa Isolar 9x12cm plate camera

Thanks Paul. I completely forgot about the Paterson Orbital. That does indeed sound like a good solution. I have never seen one in real life but I remember having seen them in catalogs back when they were available. I immediately checked the auction site and found a couple of them for sale in the UK...

Agfa Isolar 9x12cm plate camera

I could not resist this one :roll: . The seller said it looked like new, and indeed it (almost) does. I already own a couple of Kodak 3A folders for which I need to invent some sort of (thin) frame to support the smaller 120 film in those large film gates in order to keep the film flat for the sharp...

Re: Rescue animal

Last summer I found a huge and entirely bright green grasshopper of about the same size of your critter. It had a 7-8 centimeters long body. He was well hidden between the leaves of our garden flowers and I accidentally stumbled upon it while hunting for the slugs that ate my plants. I had never see...

Re: Out of season

Re: Shutter repair gone wrong

What a shame! To my untrained eye it looks like frames 1 and 5 have a similar problem, and frames 6 and 7 another but different issue. But then again, I do not claim to have any clue about shutter issues and shutter repair, let alone Leica shutters. I hope this fine camera can be fixed.
