    I'd be chuffed with that with anything, never mind a box camera.

    Incidentally, one of the things I love is that you can just hold any filter you fancy over the lens with two rubber bands.

    Adrian wanted a shot of my 2E:

    The case has lost the leather strap, but is otherwise in good condition.

    ps I still think Adrian [or Zou] should refund me the price - their fault I bought it.

    Very nice, @Zou... and it brings back memories. We climbed Stac Pollaidh a few years ago (about 600metres high, IIRC) but it felt more like 6000! :eek: I doubt my knees (or stamina) would last the climb these days, so thanks for posting this reminder of summat wot I done. ;):)

    Looks generally tidy, Steve... I'll be interested to see some results from it, as-and-when.

    Also, I'm sure you're right about the refund - after all, one of those two got you into this! ;):D

    This got me rooting in a box of very old cameras in my garage yesterday (inherited, no space in the display cabinet at present) for anything usable. A No3 Cartridge Kodak was there, but needs some attention to be usable and film would be a case of cutting to size; a No2A Folding Brownie looks usable but needs a fiddle to make 120 film work with a 116 spool size, and a Voigtlander folder (model unknown) also looks possible, so thanks Zou for inspiring me!

    You'll need an insert for the Nos 3 and 2a rather than cutting the film down, also a very thin mask:

    This is a 3 with what looks like a professional job made of the inserts and mask. Not a bad lens, though:

    The 2a would be the same regarding the inserts and mask.
