Re: unknown companies: Feig

The only inscription is the FEIG Logo on the lens. There is no serial number or other information. It is a quite simple camera, fixed focus lens, fixed aperture, the shutter speed is selected by sliding an outside ring like Compur shutters.The shutter is triggered from the lens, the button on the bo...

Re: Real of replica?

After some researches, it turned to be a replica. Some time ago there was in Spain a collection named "build your own vintage camera" I think they used a Lancaster as the brand ended activity more than 50 years ago and they would not find any problem with patents and the use of the brand. ...

Real of replica?

I’ve just purchased what seems to be a 1/4 Plate Lancaster 1893 Instantograph Patent Camera that looks so new that it is hard to believe that could have 100 years so I would like to ask you if you know any Lancaster replica. I still cannot imagine that antibody could hand craft this camera as the or...

Re: Mentor Goltz U. Breutmann Dresden camera price.

Hello, my guess is that is a Klein-Mentor (special, 6.5x9) / a Mentor Reflex. It has attached what it seems to be a super fast Prolinear 1.9/13.5cm but the left side of the camera is a little bit tricky. I could not spot any Mentor camera with that metal finish so my guess is that the leather cover ...

Curious Serial Number on Zeiss lens

Is there any colecting interest on lenses or cameras with curious serial numbers? I´ve just bought a Contax II with a Sonnar 50mm F2 with a quite “neat” serial number: 2400000 and I´ve never seen nothing like that before. Feel free to share yours.

Re: A camera to add

That's right even though not every "Apollo" share the same differences. Nikon F was slowly evolving to the F2. Mine is one of the last 13000 Fs

A camera to add

Hi I’ve seen that there are some variations of the Nikon F, first units, 66xxxx models, red dot ones.... but does not appear one named ”Apollo”. It was a late Nikon F that had some pieces from the F2. It was nicknamed after the space Apollo missions that used to carry Nikon Cameras but nothing to do...
