More about the point of registering?
I wonder if we should add half a sentence, making it clear that people only need to register if they want to edit. Maybe "You don't need to register to read the articles in Camera-wiki.org, but if you would like to add or correct any information on this site, sign up for a user account (this is simple and free), log in, and click any "edit" link". What do you think? --Dustin McAmera 08:43, 3 May 2012 (PDT)
We now have a Camera-wiki blog, presenting news about the site and our future plans, and highlighting some interesting tidbits about the wiki. But we'd also ask you to consider going to the donations page if you like what we're doing here. For security reasons, this is hosted separately from the wiki itself (where anyone can edit a page).
The current "pirate forks" logo was a whimsical impulse from one of the site admins. But are you a graphic artist? Would you care to contribute something better? We'd love that. Please leave a note here linking to your idea.
Old Business (Pre-2011)
I have 2, an early basic model with the "waistfinder" and one with an uncoupled rangefinder. I have also got copies of some first hand documentation: A print out of the manuals and a letter from one of the later AGI employees to a person that requested information. The letter dates to the 1970s or so. There isn't much extra info, but if somebody is interested I can scan them in.
Mamiya Six w/Zeiss Tessar Lens
Hello, My name is Igor, and collecting old photo gear is one of my passions. I just came across a Mamiya 6 (No. 13927) with a Zeiss Jena Tessar (441526) mounted in a NKS-TOKYO shutter 1-1/200, B. All seems to work as intended, however, would like to know if there are other Mamiya 6 cameras with this lens, and how many may have been produced with this lens and shutter combo. It does not look like an add on. Any info will be greatly appreciated.
Polaroid Highlander-80-A mode l(circa 1957)
Does anybody know what type of film this camera will take. It is a treasure and it is in flawless condition, still in it's original leather case. I am told by "The Impossible Project" that 600 film would not work. Any ideas, please?
I have an old Japanese Boltax 1 camera, from 1938. Its an early model, ser # 495. Very good condition. Any idea of what it is worth. Thanks,, Artie
I got this a while ago, and never thought much of it. I recently decided to look it up and found no information other than here, where it says there are no other cameras of this model. How much would this be worth? its in excellent condition, and the leather case is in good condition. Hope to have a reply soon, thanks!
Is this helpful or not? (Arsen and Baby Oso)
This was up above, cluttering up the page. At first I thought it was spam, but then it looked like it had some real information in it. Maybe it was from some conversation that I don't know about? Anyhow, here's the text below. --Lbstone 13:09, 2 December 2010 (EST)
