Camera Porn Friday

Often simply written as "W/NW" - your favorite photos. Explain them, or let your photos (film or digital) speak for themselves.

Naked Ambi Silette
Trying to figure out why the RF was only good between 1 and 3m
At the end it was some grease (green Agfa goo) in the arm for the spli-beam mirror

Good old Bayer grease, always gumming up the works on an Agfa. But then I don't think they ever planned on the cameras not being serviced in 50 years.

Mirror return is very lazy. Let's see if I can get it to work more or less OK without tearing the whole thing down :D

Hope you can revive it. Not an easy camera to work on, according to my technician.

Amen! Even if it does not "phoenix", I'll put the lens in another camera

Congrats, Santiago!

I'm tempting myself with Contarex, that Planar is something extraordinary!

Alex, I say go for it. I'm using it with a cheap adapter and I'm absolutely loving it.

As I was looking at old negatives I remembered this little gem that I used i the 90s
The Nikon F301 (N2000 in US).. so here go the intercontinental twins

Image

The 1st Nikon without film advance lever, while maintaining manual focus, first polycarbonate body and first camera with DX recognition.
It still works as new after all these years
