    I measure the fixed aperture in the lens body - ( that opening / fixture that holds the waterhouse stops). I do a little math and calculate the area of that opening. I calculate what half of that...

    Certainly would have scared me off - not the scratch but the stiff aperture ring as result of the drop. Since we don't know how high the winners actual bid was ( just what it took to win) I guess...

  8. Re: Variations in the design of the rear cells of the Dallmeyer Soft lens Petzvals

    I was noticing that the aperture scales also changed in the later lenses. Some are "wide open" with the adjustment lever fully clockwise others completely "stopped down".

  9. Removing Aperture Assembly on Dallmeyer Patent Portrait

    I was wondering if anyone had ever repaired one- I only found one screw on the outside of the body - There is a second screw that "appears" to attach the adjustment "knob" inside the body.

    Those lenses WILL NEVER SELL for those prices. A stop faster is a huge difference - go price a modern 300mm f4 vs a 300 f2.8 - If you hold onto your lens long enough you will be able to break...

  15. Re: Vitax 16" w/ #5 Wollensak Studio Shutter / tiny aperture knob needed

    It sounds like it is working as designed now - Remember this was designed in the days of ISO 10 film - exposures were in seconds.

  16. Re: Vitax 16" w/ #5 Wollensak Studio Shutter / tiny aperture knob needed

    DON'T EVEN THINK OF OILING ANYTHING! I'm serious if you don't know what your doing then don't. The shutter mechanism is just dirty, try just gently exercising it with the lever. The aperture...

  32. Re: Recommended source for bellows and installation on a Century Studio portait came

    Well they did offer to nickle plate the hardware and provide a red leather bellows ;) My Catalog from 1958 show the price as $193.00 Varnished and $325.00 Painted.

    Your grey painted model is actually the upscale model of the Ansco #5 studio camera. Believe it or not the grey paint cost more than the varnished model.
