    Re: Old Cars, Trucks and Motorcycles

    That poor thing looks like it was hidden under blackberry vines and dug out. Growing up, our neighbors had an identical one, a 1946, and before that my dad had a 1948 Dodge coupe. We remember how...

    Beautiful. Infrared was on my list and didn't get done, at least not in LF. Some nice 35mm with the Nikon ages ago. By this time I'm sure the film must be quite dead? An older Nikon digital SLR...

    Neither rare or particularly valuable. What they're good for is making pictures. What I like about having older holders is I use them with non-standard film. So I know my newer plastic ones are...

    Tessar's are pretty interchangeable. Company to company, the characteristics are the same. The differences from an f3.5 to an f4.5 and from f4.5 to f6.3 are greater than any inter-company...

    That's a great lens. Your camera is probably the smaller 3 1/4X4 1/4 inch film size. Measure the glass area at the back. The cameras were sold without lens and the customer matched a lens that met...
