    Hi....

    I'm a fans of film photography.

    Just wanted to share the history of Canon Rangefinder. The Canon P & Canon 7 series (7, 7s) from 60's & 70's

    Would really love to have one of those...

    That 7 is a beauty... now on my list of things to add to my collection. :) I have one of the P rangefinders and need to learn how to adjust the rangefinder for focus. I also have a Canonet QL17 GIII that is a blast to play with. If only developing and scanning wasn't so expensive.

    I guess for Black & White film, developing might not be that hard.
    Check this youtube instruction...



    The chemical is not that hard to find here in Jakarta. And doesn't cost that much. Local brand developer & fixer might cost you about USD 3-4 each (should be dilluted in aquadest), and can process about 20 rolls. Ilford ID-11 might cost 10x though....
    And from the film, you need only the changing bag and kitchen sink for dark room...
    Problem arises when you need to scan in hi-res...

    Equipment:
    Canon P, 50mm f1.8, 35mm f2, much Pentax gear, some Nikon gear, Voigtlander Vitessa L, Konica IIIa, Retina IIIc, Agfa Karat, etc, etc
    I've recently scored a Canon P in excellent condition, the 50mm f1.8, and 35mm f2 both excellent, plus an ever ready case in excellent condition. The P is a lovely camera! The viewfinder on mine is clear, the RF patch bright, and having parallax compensation a real plus, since most of my shooting has been with SLRs and DSLRs. My P has the usual little wrinkles in the shutter curtains, they seem to have no effect.
    But... filters must be made of Unobtainium!:( I have scored UVs for both lenses, plus a Canon clamp-on lens hood which fits my two lenses and the f3.5 100mm. I hope to find a 40mm to Series 6 adapter, but so far no luck. Even Tim at FilterFind my usual source, doesn't have any. I tried a 40mm to Series 7 but the combo obscured too much of the view finder. Any suggestions out there?
