    I think Carsten (used to post here all the time) is selling one on FB if you're friends with him.

    I found a couple of Voigtlanders and old Soviet rangefinders going for OK prices on ebay, I may scoop one up after the Christmas period (aka spending $$$) dies down. I already got a little film compact that could last me til then

    I've shot with one. It's different. Very relaxing.

    I wonder what I meant by 'ok prices' for Voigtlanders. The Bessa R is commonly going for $1000+ now!

    soviet shit is hit or miss, but when you find one without light leaks (or learn where the leaks are and how to plug them), they are fantastic durable cameras. i used a fed-2 for a long time in high school. i bought that shit for $20.

    now i dont really shoot as much still, but shoot a lot of motion (16mm, super8), and i still use these soviet cameras. i have a krasnogorsk 3 for 16mm. it also light leaks like a mother fucker and used to jam all the time. it is heavy as fuck and i have to tape the entire thing shut after loading film in it, but it's got a good lens, and it runs great.

    i want to get a quarz super 8 camera one day.

    the lenses they made for all these cameras are also pretty good quality, and still quite cheap.

    anything soviet is clunky, but simple and well-made, and durable as fuck.
