My first 35mm camera was a rangefinder, American name, I think it was Ansco. I just realized it's coming up on five-oh years ago. How'd that happen?
At any rate over the last several years I seem to have accumulated a collection of rangefinders, I don't know why. I tell myself that I'm getting them for a song and except for the xPan that's correct. But then I spend hours cleaning, replacing seals, adjusting, repairing them, all the while running film through them to see how they're doing so a song becomes a whole bunch o songs. I keep thinking I will sell them but know that I would put whatever I made towards another rangefinder...perhaps with a red dot on it. It would be interesting to go somewhere though and only carry 1 film camera and not 3.
These are the ones I've used this past year.
