Leica IIIf “Black Dial”, 1952-1953, with original case and accessoires
A true treasure is this original case with Leica IIIf, lenses and accessoires, in very good condition.

Graflex Speed Graphic
The Graflex Speed Graphic is another collector’s item. It’s normal use is with 4×5 inch photography, but this one does take Graflock rollfilm holders. Designed for use in the field, mainly as a press camera, these camera’s are equiped with a rangefinder on top of the box. It has a rather cumbersome but very special focal plane shutter in the back, with the possibility to “speed up” the shutter to 1/500 sec (there were also models which went up to 1/1000). Because of it’s built in shutter, it is possible to use lenses without a shutter. This one is equipped with a Xenar Schneider 135mm f4,5 lens.
The camera is capable of tilt- and shift, but not of swing movements (because it was used for press photography). It can be fitted with a flash unit. There is, alas, no accompanyning film back with this camera, although these might quite easily be obtained through eBay or the like. It is equiped with a Graflock back, more information on these backs – which make possible the use of a rollfilm holder – can be found here:
Price € 200,00. It is sold with a three month guarantee by the vendor. Available in shop.
Zeiss Ikon Nettar 512/2, 6×9 cm, 1933-1940
Not only a collector’s item, but also the ideal starting point for medium format photography. This Zeiss Ikon self erecting-folding camera is pre-war, given it’s combination of a Klio shutter and Anastigmat lens. It has shutter speeds of 1 to 1/150 sec., which makes the camera ill suited to faster film (say, higher than 200 ASA). It has aperture settings of f4,5 to f32 and follows the classical look of the better amateur camera ever since the 1890s.
It takes 120 roll film, and makes 6 x 9 cm exposures, which means it has the usual 2:3 image ratio and gives rather large negatives. The soft Anastigmat lenses are of good quaility, and they will give that special softness in local contrast. It is not adapted for colour photography (which doesn’t mean you can’t take a colour picture with it, but colours might shift a little).
This beauty is equiped with a separate rangefinder by Watameter, making focussing easier, and a viewfinder as well.
