I will post some vintage Chinese cameras.

Here is a Chinese Shanghai 58-2 rangefinder camera. There are 5 or 6 versions made between 1958-1963. This is an earlier version.

Where can you buy one of these?


Sorry for a late reply. I just saw this. These are offered at ebay occasionally. But collectors would like to find a one with 4 screws in the cold shoe and even better with strap lugs with 4 digits s/ns.These are early versions,and much less often to find.

A black version is quite uncommon.

Sometimes a name may be technically accurate, but just doesn't translate well, does it?

Earlier cameras by that factory had a brand name "Panda". I prefer Panda to Peacock for its name.

And here' the only SLR of the Mamiya CS system:



Of course there were a few derivatives such as the NC-1000s or a silver body NC-1000, but basically the NC system consisted of only one camera...

It'd be a mare to dig everything out; specially since I'm in the middle of preparing to move...

However, I give you.. Little and Large.. Very Happy

Recent 'Gifts' from Kind People who know I can give them a 'Good Home' . OM-10 had to have all light seal strips renewed, Pentax has 1/1000th second shutter problems and battery contact snapped off. There was a FILM in the 1936 Zeiss Ikon folder a Kodak Verichrome Pan --- I processed it in DK50 Formula 1+1 and got 5 useable negs and printed them for the Lady.

I have a hobby to use the crappiest cameras.

My latest acquisition: Praktica Super TL, non functioning meter, times work only 1/60 and below, got it free. Helios without automatic aperture, I had it in parts for years in the storage but managed to assemble it.

DIY large format camera: Moment soviet polaroid lens and shutter. Frame made of some recycled stuff. Bellows is black plastic trash bag, ground glass baking paper and film holder cardboard. I use it to shoot on ancient Kodak Bromide paper.

Funny thing! Thank You Dog
Is the plastic trash bag dark enough for the bellows?

Not very good, contemplating replacing it with black leather type material, if I happen to see it somewhere. All parts except the lens are something I found here in my house, aka recycled camera. For paper negatives it does work but wouldn't put film there yet.

So the latest addition to my ever growing East German collection...



Bit of an ebay find as the listing didn't paint it in the best of light and I was really bidding to get my hands on the 50mm f/2.8 Tessar that came with it; one of the earlier metal versions, i.e late 50s.

On arrival, it blew me away. It is impeccably clean - it's like its been used once a put away.. Tiny dint on one side of the body but otherwise it's virtually a museum piece. It's still got the sticker on the inside of the case from the store on Charing Cross Road in London it was sold from - now gone, I've checked..

interesting, the shutter looks exactly like Zenits, as I remember it rotates when you fire the shutter or was it when you arm it?
