Hello,
  +
My name is Igor, and collecting old photo gear is one of my passions. I just came across a Mamiya 6 (No. 13927) with a Zeiss Jena Tessar (441526) mounted in a NKS-TOKYO shutter 1-1/200, B. All seems to work as intended, however, would like to know if there are other Mamiya 6 cameras with this lens, and how many may have been produced with this lens and shutter combo. It does not look like an add on. Any info will be greatly appreciated.
   
Shutter spped selected via dial (not rim) and has T, B, 25,50,100 listed on the dial

== Polaroid Highlander-80-A mode l(circa 1957) ==

Does anybody know what type of film this camera will take.
PRONTO D.R.P. DRGM
+
It is a treasure and it is in flawless condition, still in it's original leather case.
  +
I am told by "The Impossible Project" that 600 film would not work.

Any ideas, please?
   
F-Stop is set with small lever on bottom of lens/shutter assembly

Many thanks,
   
Focus is set in METERS via manual ring around lens with handle on the ring.

Found in father-in-laws house after his passing last year. WWII vet in Germany. Started in France and ended up in Munich via Belgium at the end of the war and then was returned to US summer 1945.

== Oko-Six Camera ==
   
Maybe "librated" it along the way but don't know. Did not ask him while he was alive and he never talked about it in the 30 + years I knew him. It was stuck out in the garage unders some old papers for decades. Just trying to get some information so I might be able to put a "story" together.
+
I got this a while ago, and never thought much of it. I recently decided to look it up and found no information other than here, where it says there are no other cameras of this model. How much would this be worth? its in excellent condition, and the leather case is in good condition. Hope to have a reply soon, thanks!
   
Took me a few days to learn to open it and study the markings + the operation.

ANY INFORMATION I CAN OBTAIN WOULD BE WONDERFUL

This was up above, cluttering up the page. At first I thought it was spam, but then it looked like it had some real information in it. Maybe it was from some conversation that I don't know about? Anyhow, here's the text below. --[[User:Lbstone|Lbstone]] 13:09, 2 December 2010 (EST)

== Best Camera Survey ==
   
:Mickey, see the article about this model at ''[[Agfa Billy Zero]]''. The unit you have sounds interesting as it has a different lens and shutter from the other Billy Zeros which have been described on the internet. Pictures would be helpful, especially a macro of the front of the lens. Images added to the ''[http://www.flickr.com/groups/camerapedia/ Camerapedia Flickr Pool]'' could be used in articles on this website. "0169" sounds like a really low serial number but I'm not familiar with Agfa's numbering schemes. Is it in full working order? [[User:SuperCCD|SuperCCD]] 05:14, 17 August 2009 (EDT)
 
   
I have a FUJICA TX-1 camera. but i cant seem to find any information at all about this specific model.
+
The survey about the best system seems a bit off. Each of the brands mentioned outshines the others at something. The question, "Which is best?" irritates. Every photographer has to choose the system that comes closest to matching a particular style, or way of working. What suits me may seem horribly awkward to someone else & vice versa. I love my Nikons, but wish the dslr would capture motion at 60fps. I wouldn't part with my old rangefinder cameras, but sometimes wish they'd fill the viewfinder with a close approximation of what's going on the film, and at least one friend says the off-center tripod thread would keep him from wanting to own one of my cameras. So, best is a movable feast.
   
Everytime i search it leads me to either Fuji TX-1 or Fujica STX-1.
+
Who designed the survey, and why?
   
can anyone help me out?i really want to know the history of this specific model (FUJICA TX-1)
+
Identity question- I have just received a camera as part of an estate. The camera says made in Germany US zone. It has Prontor on the fold out lens and also GmbH Calmbach. The top has a flat depth of field chart but ther does not seem to be a model of camera shown. Looking for some feedback. Thanks GWG2

Extra documentation Edit

I have 2, an early basic model with the "waistfinder" and one with an uncoupled rangefinder. I have also got copies of some first hand documentation: A print out of the manuals and a letter from one of the later AGI employees to a person that requested information. The letter dates to the 1970s or so. There isn't much extra info, but if somebody is interested I can scan them in.

Mamiya Six w/Zeiss Tessar Lens Edit

Hello, My name is Igor, and collecting old photo gear is one of my passions. I just came across a Mamiya 6 (No. 13927) with a Zeiss Jena Tessar (441526) mounted in a NKS-TOKYO shutter 1-1/200, B.

It does not look like an add on. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Polaroid Highlander-80-A mode l(circa 1957) Edit

Does anybody know what type of film this camera will take. It is a treasure and it is in flawless condition, still in it's original leather case. I am told by "The Impossible Project" that 600 film would not work. Any ideas, please?

Many thanks,

Best Camera Survey Edit

The survey about the best system seems a bit off. Each of the brands mentioned outshines the others at something. The question, "Which is best?" irritates. Every photographer has to choose the system that comes closest to matching a particular style, or way of working. What suits me may seem horribly awkward to someone else & vice versa. I love my Nikons, but wish the dslr would capture motion at 60fps. I wouldn't part with my old rangefinder cameras, but sometimes wish they'd fill the viewfinder with a close approximation of what's going on the film, and at least one friend says the off-center tripod thread would keep him from wanting to own one of my cameras. So, best is a movable feast.
