To Widelux… and Beyond!

There’s lots to celebrate in this new year: for one thing, film sales are very strong. 2018 saw some intriguing new films introduced and some old favorites brought back. Things are really getting interesting, aren’t they?

On a personal level, I have many cool projects in the works, including a new Widelux F7 that is getting serviced by my friend Bob Watkins at Precision Camera Works. This camera was in good shape when I purchased it, but it has not seen a service since say, 1990, so I decided to to play it safe. To quote Bob: “More than almost any other camera, there’s a lot of nuance involved in a Widelux repair. No two are exactly the same.”

Here is the picture he sent me of the camera, mid-CLA, today:

Note to self: NEVER open this camera without Bob!

Stay tuned for several posts on new events, ramblings on Caffenol shows I have coming up, and a few follow up articles from 2018.
