Just using a new 12V battery charger for the first time. It's got Bluetooth... . Had to download an app to the phone and connect to the charger so I could see voltage, current and charging mode. Slightly more interesting than watching paint dry.

Before SWMBO finds out?


SteveH!

Some people call me 'strange'.
I prefer 'unconventional'.
But I'm willing to compromise and accept 'eccentric'.

I've been e-Baying a lot of my (fairly large) collection, much to the approval of my own SWMBO but one that won't be going anywhere is the Jupiter 11A. (see b.forbes above). No, it doesn't need a wheelbarrow but it is certainly 'built like a tank'. It also has an ingenious double threaded hood that screws on both ways and it comes in a bakelite case that has a dedicated compartment for a desiccant. The lubricant in mine smells like old gun oil (nice smell) and the helicoid is wonderfully smooth. It takes fantastic pictures and is reckoned to be the best of the Soviet Sonnar clones, even beating the "celebrated" Tair. The 'A' in Soviet lens names denotes their version of an interchangeable T2 style adapter.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Thanks David. I'd not realised it was a T2 mount. It opens up some new possibilities.

I ordered ten rolls of 120 format Fuji 400H which was at a very good price (ie. what would have been the normal price four years ago) on Amazon Spain. They don't expect to have the stock for another month but I'm in no hurry, I have plenty more 120 to get through, almost all of it expired.
