Technical Stuff

Here is a list of my photographic equipment, some of which has been bought from on-line auction sites, some second hand from friends and some, to the detriment of my kids' inheritence, brand new. And no doubt it will be added to!


Fuji GX617 Professional Panoramic Camera
Fujinon 90mm f/5.6 Lens and Viewfinder
Fujinon 180mm f/6.7 Lens and Viewfinder
Size matters!

Rolleiflex 3.5F Zeiss Planar Twin Lens Reflex Camera with Coupled Meter
They don't make them like that any more! More's the pity.

Microcord Twin Lens Reflex Camera with 77.5mm f/3.5 Ross Xpress Lens.
A poor mans Rolleicord made by Micro Precision Products of Kingston-on-Thames.

Hasselblad Xpan II 35mm Panoramic Camera
Hasselblad 30mm f/5.6 Aspherical Lens and Viewfinder

Perfection! And here is a link to the site from which I borrowed this Xpan family photo. It has an admirable brief description of the camera and lenses. I have since sold this lovely camera and its lenses (one panoramic is enough!), and am sorry to see it go, but it was bought by a friend who is now enjoying using it.
