A warm belated welcome Timmy to the Camera Labs forum! Nice photo!

Here's a Sony A900 with Carl Zeiss 135mm f/1.8.

Bjorn, you know that your α900 photograph could be a poster in a Sony store, right?
Just wondering...

Thanks guys!
If Sony wants to use it, they're free to contact me. Just send me a 35mm f/1.4 and a Zeiss 135mm f/1.8 and the photo is all theirs!

Nice ones Homer! Could you put some [img]-tags on the sides of the links so they don't have to be clicked?

Two of them aren't really still lifes, but still gear shots:

Slightly larger

Got this as a present from my parents. My mom wanted to visit an antique market last Thursday, and someone had this Eumig camera for sale, as a photo-camera. He didn't know much about it, and I had to find out myself the camera was actually a video-camera from 1958.

It's an Eumig Electric R model, takes 8mm film, and despite it's age, it runs on a battery (haha). No battery supplied in the kit though, that must have long died and disappeared from the shelves. However, it all looks fine, and with a battery, it might just work. The camera is equiped with a 12.5mm f/2.7 lens. Of the three lenses you see in the left picture, one is a hood only. The others are a 0.5x and a 2x converter. Both great lenses to use with the iPhone as well!!!

The thing on top, I figured out, is an old fashioned light meter. You set it to a certain ASA or DIN sensitivity, and it automatically calculates the required aperture with the press of a button. The aperture is adjusted by a dial on the top left of the camera. The recordbutton is located under the lenses, and can be locked in both recording and 'stand by'-mode.

The camera comes in a leather bag custom designed for this model, which, as usual with old camera's like this, screws into the tripod mount. The viewfinder of the Electric R is tiny, but then, so is the film.

I'd love to shoot a video with it sometime, but getting a battery and some new film for it is something I'll have to look into. There is still some film inside, I wonder what's on it...



And an Ensign All Distance still camera, don't know any model numbers or names. Takes 120 film, as far as I know, I'm no expert though. It has two viewfinders, which are both too blurry to compose through. The shutter isn't very reliable, but works most of the time. Haven't every tried shooting a roll of film with it, but if I ever come across a roll of 120, I'll probably give it a go.

Hi,

Cool photos, Bjorn!! Maybe if you keep them safe for a few years, you may get your A900 by selling these beauties! Hope I don't sound girlish, but they look downright CUTE!!!!

Happy researching.....
Jinay.

I think they look cute too! However, they don't sell for a lot of money, so even if I sold both of them (can't, the still camera is my mum's), I wouldn't be able to get myself a new camera... :)

Awesome pictures I have to say. Maybe one day I'll join in, but don't have anything right now.
