Additional information to date a Canon F-1n Body

I've just purchased a Canon F-1n and in my obsession to date my cameras I've found two different serial numbers, the outside one 663962 and the internal linked to the accurate manufactured date. According to this information, my camera has the V1018 that apparently means that this camera was built o...

Re: Looking to confirm ID of an Ihagee Kine Exakta I (round-viewfinder) (before-war-edition)

Every auction leads to overpriced results as desire make you bid over its estimation. The thing is that as it is a rare item there are no many places to compare prices. I've checked in Live Auctioners as they offer a database o a wide range of auctions, some overpriced but other under a fair price t...

Re: Looking to confirm ID of an Ihagee Kine Exakta I (round-viewfinder) (before-war-edition)

It seems a pre-war one, I am curious about the engraving next to the slow speeds right dial. Prices may vary, from 400 to 1500€, there is one currently for auction on Leitz Auction. Maybe the engraving could add more value to your camera.

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 ...

Re: Need help to identify " Robot Camera

Hello, you are right it is a Robot Star but for special purposes due to the lack of viewfinder, one of the flash ports and the speeds dial. Due to its automatic film advance mechanism were used in a wide variety of purposes, security cameras, speed radar, medical and scientific needs as the Storz en...

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.
