A highly suspicious “Canon S8200”, sent in!

This camera can’t be found in any official Canon literature (including the online Canon Camera Museum), and is suspiciously identical to the “Olympia DL200A”. Hmmmm…

Comes with a slow 50/6.3 lens but a strangely cool waist-level finder!

Werra Matic, sent in! 

This is one with a built-in exposure meter.  Supposedly, the manufacturer stopped producing Werras when they started producing for Hasselblad.  Can anyone confirm this?

Hasselblad EL/M conversion, sent in!

This is project of none other than MCS’ go to guy, James Uy! Instead of using the cell battery this EL/M was converted to to use AA batteries.

I use 5 AA’s were used to supply 7.5 volts to run the charge motor. Mods were done on the battery contact of top cover, then painted red and black to identify the battery polarity. Now a convenient power source for EL/M’s!

AA’s have the same height as the original battery, so conversion was possible. By making a plastic cylinder same in the size and dimension as the original battery, conversion was a clean job.

Sent in! Cool vintage items: a mechanical wall clock and old tube type AM/SW radio all still working perfectly( maybe 75 yrs old ). Of course, an M5, an M4, and a CL in the foreground!

A beautiful rare Werra camera, sent in!

These were manufactured by Carl Zeiss Jena, and feature a unique cocking system, interchangeable Carl Zeiss lenses, and a bright split image range finder.

The unique cocking system is clever: twisting the ring around the lens barrel cocks the shutter and advanced the film in one motion. Whoa, momma!
