    I was just experimenting with that Rolleiflex Sport-Finder the other day. It works really well. I was shooting sailing dingys from a sailing dingy (it was not very windy, and the boat I was in was wide and flat-bottomed). I have a Nikon F1 as well, given to me by a friend. The Rolleiflex was also a gift, and the Crown Graphic was inherited.

    Want a couple more Argus C3s? I like primitive cameras, but there is a limit . . .

    Why is there a piece of tape covering the Canon logo?

    Because everyone thinks it's a competition, haha. The camera I use is irrelevant, but it's all anyone ever wants to talk about.

    This is what my 5d looks like.

    In 1943 Ado;f Hitler presented Grand Admiral Doenitz with the Iron Cross First Class with Oak Leaves, Crossed Swords and Diamonds, the highest class of this medal. As a personal gift he also presented him with a Leica 111 with gold bright work and engraved with the Kriegsmarine symbol. Obviously this camera is priceless. It survived the war and was exchanged for a handful of cigars with a a prison guard at Nurnberg whilst Doenitz was awaiting trial.

    The camera is completely original down to the dust it attracted whilst it's owner was visiting the bunker in the last days of the war.

    The provenance is impeccable. Yuri Davidenko of Boggit cameras of Kiev has assured me that it is completely genuine, and who am I to argue?

    Why would the Fuhrer present the Admiral Of the Navy with a Luftwaffe camera? ;)

    I would almost guarantee its a fake. The Russians faked thousands of so called "genuine" WWII Leicas during the 1960s through to the 1980s and I'm taking a wild guess that Yuri from Boggit cameras of Kiev (shouldn't that be Bodge It Cameras?) is complicit. :D
    Apart from anything else from the early 1930s Leica serial numbers were 6 digits not 5 and began with a 3.
    All the photos of real German military IIIc cameras I have seen have the top plate being much more radiused around the edge of the cold shoe. The plate shape looks to square to be original to me.
    Where the word Luftwaffe appears there should be a number that represents the military batch number.

    Yes I wondered about that. However Yuri told me that two cameras were made, one for Doenitz and one for Goering. Hence the double inscription.

    Oh dear Richard I fear you might be right about the camera. But do you think the brick dust from the shelling of the Berlin bunker could still be genuine?

    And real Luftwaffe Leicas has "Luftwaffe - Eigentum" engraved of the rear of the top plate beside the viewfinder and the letter K after the six digit serial number that began with a 3. :D

    I doubt it. I suspect it is more likely off the walls of Donitiz's prison cell after he discovered that the cooks were urinating on his morning scrambled eggs and threw the camera at the orderly in a rage. :D

    " letter K after the six digit serial number that began with a 3. ":D

    Not quite Richard the " K" only appeared on the cameras equipped with the " Kugellager" shutter.

    Don't start me off.

    Here is another oddity from the " collection". This time it is original, complete with the right lens/ cap and ever ready case.

    Something missing?

    True but most of the ones made for the Luftwaffe had that shutter so the camera would work in low temps in unpressurised and unheated planes. Didn't Yuri tell you that. :)
