Meopta Flexaret VII (1968)

The first set of objectives rightly honors the Tessar type project. The first example we consider brings us back to photography adolescent dawn: At the same time the famous Burgess Shales were discovered in British Columbia, with their exceptional Cambrian fauna preserved so well that, for the first time, we studied the soft parts of the trilobites, a distant event which now belongs to the history of paleontology. The ferrule which keeps the rear doublet can be unscrewed, thanks to a knurled power take on the bottom of the lens, while the two individual lenses are removable together, unscrewing the black front rim, in turn separable into two pieces by removing the central lens, screwed on the back of the removed ring: I have performed preliminary tests with this lens, and do not hide the emotion felt in reviving such a dated, historical piece: Marco in Venice, after the collapse of , was inaugurated with great pomp: The lens proposed here with the main statements of his patent, registered in April , is small in size and was originally fitted to a mahogany wood plate; the barrel is made of burnished brass and, as usual, the stopping-down references for the iris actually indicate the diaphragm hole in millimeters; notice how the data in the front ring are manually carved, removing the black lacquer and displaying the bare brass.


It is produced and hosted as another way of expressing gratitude to those who have helped Company Seven prosper. With some of this content dating back to the times when slow dial-up Internet access was the norm, the article was originally text heavy because illustrations were by necessity kept simple and to a minimum. Over the decades we have, and will continue to, on occasion add this or that mention of or illustration of items in our archives and museum collection, this to break up the monotony of text, make corrections with much gratitude to Dr.

It was never our intent to write one comprehensive and all-encompassing history of Zeiss, that would require volumes to do it justice, but rather to explain why we at Company Seven remain grateful for and in awe of the achievements by Zeiss. From its inception through to the middle 19th century, lens making was a craft that was essentially passed on from generation to generation.

Innovations had typically resulted from trial and error experimentation; this was a costly and time consuming process that could not factor in all of the possible variables in lens making materials and design.

A PERSONAL ITEM OF FIELD MARSHALL WILLIAM BIRDWOOD. A late 18 th Century George Commode which has been converted to a bedside cabinet or small writing desk. The significance of this piece is that it was formally the property of Lord Birdwood (Field-Marshall the Lord William Birdwood, GCB, GCSI, GCMG, GCVO, CIE, DSO.

Having a distinctive almond shaped skull with characteristic stalk-like projection resembling a pear and giving these helmets their name cabacette. Many of these were held in English church armouries from the time of the Armada, and examples were taken to the New World by the earliest English settlers, one has been found during excavations at Jamestown Island.

This is a pleasing example, the rosettes and plume holder being restorations. In all a handsome example of munition armour of the late 16th Century. In addition to being a being a famous writer, Scott was also an antiquary who assembled an important collection of arms and armour. He was a contemporary and correspondant of Samuel Rush Meyrick, and indeed commissioned him to procure items for his armoury. The armoury is on public display at Abbotsford and is to be recommended to the student of arms and armour.

The gauntlet dates to the late 16th Century and is of steel decorated with brass-capped rivets. Though handsome, such gauntlets are not rare, however, one with such a provenance to an early and important collection of armour certainly is. This is the only item of European armour to have left the Abbotsford armoury and is likely the only piece that ever will. The gauntlet comes with a documented and verifiable provenance. The best book on arms and armour I’ve read in the last few years.

Posted 16 July – Brightness and color are both exceptionally good. Viewing into a brightly lit area with the sun low on the horizon creating a lot of glare, its stray light control is extremely good, equal to that of my best binoculars such the Nikon 8X32 SE or 7X50 Tropical. FOV is about 6. Sharpness of image is very good but does not immediately impress as its brightness and stray light control do.

This may be due to lack of phase coating. I haven’t used it in low light conditions yet but with the big exit pupil and its excellent anti-reflective coatings it should perform well. The 7 mm exit pupil gives a very relaxed view which I like. Build quality, as expected, is great. My example is over 20 years old and focusing and diopter adjustment are perfect, and it is still immaculately clean inside.

The rubber eyecups are also perfect but if you wear glasses I’m not sure how much folding down they will take before starting to crack.


Yashica Worldwide Offices The Japanese Photographic Industry – Between the two World Wars, Japan had developed a photographic industry but it was still feeling its way, still a long way from being a player on the world stage. As an example, because of scale, or the lack of it, and raw materials costs, Japanese lenses were often more expensive than the more highly regarded German optics.

The second World War left much of the Japanese photographic industry destroyed or damaged.

Lacquered brass sighting tubes, with plain glass “lenses”, are mounted through rectangular wood pillars, on a steel column and cast iron base. An air gap is present between the two ends of the “telescope”. An observer sees very clearly through the instrument, even when an opaque obstacle is placed in the air gap! A sliding wood panel reveals the secret — a sequence of four plane mirrors which direct the light down, across, and back up to the viewer.

Production date for the following Zeiss binocular There are no recorded serial numbers for Zeiss binoculars made in West Germany or those made by Zeiss after the fall of the berlin wall.

Antique Carl Zeiss Binoculars?

I prefer solidly made binoculars, and have amassed a modest little collection of prized specimens, mostly acquired off eBayUK, but also charity shops and car boot fairs. I used to own a pair of 11×80’s bought off Leo Henzl Jnr in , but I sold them 10 years later. They were too heavy to hold for more than a couple of minutes, and on a photographic tripod, too awkward to point near the zenith.

You really need a parallelogram mount for binoculars that size and larger. I prefer a binocular you can carry with you to a star party, for casual star gazing.

PREFACE to first edition. THIS BOOK was to be an autobiography. I was made into a computer fifty years ago. I was the second scientist ever hired by IBM, and I watched the Watsons on Olympus, and Bill Norris and Ken Olsen and Gene Amdahl, and a thousand great commercial and academic figures.

My Photographic Beginnings The first camera that I owned was a Kodak Brownie that was a present given to me by my brother Jim when I was about ten years old. I used the camera for family photographs but not for “serious” photographs and very few images survive that were taken on this camera. This was replaced a few years later by another camera It also and had an accessory shoe and sync socket allowing use of a flash unit.

Needless to say his interest rubbed off on me. I only had a couple of accessories to start off with The tripod was a pain to carry as the legs did not fold! A young me perched on top of Eric Knowles’ Vauxhall Victor for the Wallasey Gala Procession Photograph – John Lomax When we moved there the rooms were in a terrible state but we cleared them out, cleaned them and converted one of the rooms into a cinema complete with cinema seats and motorised screen tabs curtains , there was a darkroom where I made my first black and white print , a small office and a tea room cum kitchen.

At the age of fourteen I became the Club’s secretary and made many films including an award winning twelve minute film entitled “Briquette” which told the story of how house bricks are made starting with the clay being extracted from a local quarry to delivery of the finished article. The film featured a synchronised soundtrack that was initially recorded on a Fidelity Playtime reel to reel tape recorder borrowed off Jim before transferring to magnetic stripe complete with a commentary part of which which I can still recite today and starts In this case it is done by bucket excavators”.

This subject was chosen due to a school visit to the location that captured my imagination.
