A few months ago I finally got my own Rolleiflex 2.8, the “C” model. It’s not one of the more fluid ones to use (I say this because often the faster 1/500 shutter speed springs on Rolleiflex’s can be stiff), but it is one of the less common and it is in great shape. I…

Reticulation! So in the March 2022 newsletter I expounded upon my bad luck shooting plastic cameras…and my latest reticulation “adventure.” I had two rolls of the offending garage stored Agfa APX 400 and recently I developed the second roll, which was shot in my Leica IIIF / Voigtlander 35mm f2.8.
