    Large format is like the Crocodile Dundee scene where he says "You call that a knife? This is a knife!!". The guys with 20x24s think everything else is small format ..EC

    Maybe not Zorro, but possibly a matador!

    With expression on your face, I would guess that your subject's glasses were reflecting the tripod legs and you're using the cloth to cover them. I've used a cloth like that many times...

    This is a Mentor reflex camera that was completely updated for using standard 9x12 cm and 4x5" film holders. Very nice and comfortable to work with. Allows maximum comfort while shooting portraits !

    Nana,
    Nice 2D! What did you do to the finish to restore it? My 2D is in fine shape but I want to buff\polish the wood to bring it back to like new.

    Well, I just did some very thin sand paper job on the wooden parts and varnished it again. The most complicated was to disassemble it and take away all the dirt from the brass parts, again with very thin sand paper. I believe this camera must be, at least, 70 years old. The brass parts were completely black. This camera was used as an enlarger for many years.
    I did not varnished the brass parts, because I like the natural look of it, even if it is a bit oxyded but, often, I have to clean it again with a soft polish liquid.
