  • Replied in Jupiter-8
    I found a FED 3 camera with an Industar 61 lens on ebay in 2002 and picked up a Jupiter 8 lens for it when I found one offered from the Ukrain.  I then stopped using film about 2007 but kept all ...
  • Buying these old lenses always seems to be a bit of a lottery.  Over the last six months I have bought a Kiron (FD mount) 24mm f2.0 lens and an "Image" brand 35-70mm zoom.  Both fail to focus and ...
  • I just checked.  My lens will focus at the min 1.6m when set at a focal length of 35mm, even when fully open at f3.5 with the minimum DoF. I also tried fucussing and then zooming in and out.  It ...
  • Thanks, John.  I remember checking the Sunpak voltage before using it on my Fujifilm S100fs camera...... and it still works well on that camera.  Also, I'm not sure if it's the same circuit but ...
  • I just picked up one of these at our local Value Village for only $15.  It has a Konica AR mount so it fits in with all my Hexanon AR prime lenses.  It looks good, the glass is great and the ...
  • I have a SUNPAK auto thyristor flash that I have used for a long time with no problems on both my old 35mm film equipment and my Fujifilm s100fs digital camera.  However, when I recently tried it ...

  • Commented on Sony A3000 preview

    I managed to get one on ebay for $140. It was a "new-in-box" body-only offer, so I guess the kit lens had been removed to sell separately. It was a great buy and I am thouroughly enjoying what it...

  • I reccently picked up an a3000 (body only deal) with the intention of using it as a "toy" with my old Canon FD and Konica AR lenses. I have been so pleased with the results that this camera (with...

  • I am also a new and very happy owner of a Sony a3000.  I was VERY lucky to pick up a body only (new in the box) on ebay for $140 + $10 shipping.  This was exactly what I was looking for because my ...
  • I was a big Konica fan when shooting film. I was lucky to have lived in Tokyo for a while and was able to pick up a lot of good used equipment there (mostly in junk stores) for very reasonable prices.
