Wouldn't it be amazing if the medical photos were taken by the same person who did the funeral(?) photos and they are of the same person? What sort of story would be going on there?]]>
Filters seany65@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?whichpage=-1&TOPIC_ID=2579&REPLY_ID=20327 Want to Buy Thu, 23 May 2019 11:56:37 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2579 Quote:
Hello and welcom to the forum Sofia.

That flea market looks like an interesting place to visit, with enough stalls to make you take a couple of hours to look around the place. Like all flea markets of course, there'll be a lot of barely useable stuff, but if you're lucky you'll be able to some good stuff, and maybe exactly what you're looking for on a particular day. It's quite possible to find something you didn't know you wanted which you just have to buy.

I know this won't help you Phil, as you posted almost 5 years ago, but people may want to be careful that the filters they buy actually have a filter thread on the front if they use a threaded lenshood. I've had an Orange Russian filter that didn't have a thread and I hadn't checked as I'd always owned hoya made filters that do, so I had to replace it.]]>

I think it will struggle to deal for 100 € ... [:(]

Hmm, Should I be kicked off the forum? seany65@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3409 Collectors and Users Open Forum Sun, 19 May 2019 18:18:57 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3409
I did own a fed 2, which I liked even though the rangefinder patch was hard to see in bright light, but as I had 10 other cameras and no space I had to part with it.

Since then I've bought a 6x6 folder (not from the USSR so I won't name it) and the distances on the lens are the same as the distances on Lomo Blik range finders, so I bought one on ebay from soemhere in eastern Europe. It was albelled as being properly adjusted but when I got it the range finder was out of distance alignment. I almost managed to get it right but then it went so far out that I couldn't even see the patch in the viewfinder and I couldn't get it back again.[:I]

I bought another on ebay, also from eastern Europe and it was slightly out as well and I also couldn't manage to adjust either, so now I have no USSR gear.

Has anyone got a properly adjusted Lomo Blik (that has a rangefinder patch that is easy to see, but not so bright as to make the real image hard to see), which won't go out of adjustment on it's way to me?

Out of interest, exactly how loose is the big screw supposed to be before adjusting the two smaller screws, and which adjusts the horizontal alignment?

Thanks for any help anyone can give.

That zorki may clean up quite well, if you put it in a washing machine on a hot wash.
