    Here is another Mercury setup. This is a Mamiya-Press 75mm lens, with a Russian 3.5cm viewfinder and German Range Finder in two of the cold-shoes, and a 6x7 roll film back out of sight on the back of the camera. The M-Press lens is mounted directly to a Mercury-made bayonet mount, since these lenses come mounted in a shutter, just like a large-format lens, but they also have their own focusing helical.

    Nice find.
    The lens is a great find. Should be sharp.

    Here is a shot converted from 6x9 negative of Fuji Pro 400H and made with the above camera and lens. I think the lens needs a bit more shimming.

    Nice one.
    I wish I could find stuff like that where I live in Spain.

    Snowy Trees? Or funky DIY cameras? Snow can be found in the Pyrenees and the rest of this stuff all came off the Web.

    Funky cameras!
    Snow is not a desirable component as it doesnt tend to exist at 25C. I prefer 25C to 25F.
