About this blog

Hallo. Ich bin Christoph und sammle seit 2009 Kameras. Dieses Hobby hat sich aus Versehen ergeben, da ich zu der Zeit in Budapest lebte und 50 Meter neben meinem Wohnung ein Kamera Antiquarat (Soós Fóto) befand. Ab und an wurde ich auf eine dieser Kameras angesprochen. Dabei fiel mir auf, dass ich nie alle Informationen zur  Kamera, den Filmen, woher ich Kamera habe, wie man sie repariert etc. an einer Stelle parat habe. Als die Sammlung immer grösser wurde, war es an der Zeit, einen “Sammlungs-Katalog” zu erstellen. Die Sortierung erfolgte dabei nach dem Eingang in die Sammlung, der erste Eintrag war die Pentax auto 110 super mit der alles begann.

Diese rückwärts chronlogische Sortierung der blogposts ist natürlich sehr subjektiv, daher hier noch eine Tabelle zur Übersicht.

Alle Kameras im Überblick (Draft)
Hersteller Modell Filmformat Typ
Kodak Retina Reflex S 35mm Spiegelreflex

Viel Spaß beim lesen, kommentieren, sharen.

Short note: As I still didn’t figured out how to build a bilingual blog on a free wordpress.com account, I use a little workaround using categories.

    1. Hi Raj, great you like them! I didn’t do any post on those pictures, b w film was Kodak Tri-x, and for the color Fuji superia 200 and the UV filter.
      For some I ignored the “A” setting and just used the 2.8 for example the nearly b&w shot with the green bulb.

  1. Hi Christoph,

    Wow. Thanks for the FAST reply.
    Really nice to hear no post-processing!
    Do you do your own development? If so what is the chemistry or method you use?

    Cheers to Berlin from India.

    1. Hi Raj, as I’m a bit more into collecting than photography itself, I just drop them at the next drugstore. They process, print and scan for 7 € and the results are fine for me…

  2. Hi, bought recently a Yashica 35 GTN … paid 59€, and only flaw I first found was a pushed in battery check button, but that was easy to fix ( open, adjust the inside switch a bit and fixed its position), everything else seems to work fine … but: lightseals were rott and sticky ( does the Kameradoktor still sells them?) AND it seems I cant get my split images in focus alined, the lighten up one always seems a bit on top of the other one, means higher … can it be adjusted?

      1. Hi Christoph, Dropped him a mail yesterday … yes, I hope so too … maybe the camera got dropped once ( or whatever ) as the battery check button was all in … would the image be still sharp if I get it mostly alined and just the lighten up image sat a bit higher?

      2. Checked the flickr-group post, but the link to how to adjust doesn’t work anymore …
