[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My father's old Agfa Isolette. Thanks for the memories dad!

Added note 04/28/09: I've been tinkering around with the camera to see if it's still functional, but alas, it suffers from a common problem with the old Agfa folders. The focus ring is stuck and just won't budge. I may try a repair job down the road, but there just aren't enough hours in the day right now.

I like the motive of your photo and the sepia tone.
Only little critique: in my opinion, the BG is too sharp and can be slightly distracting.

Hey Werner! I just purchased a 1935 Welta-Perle 645 MF camera. I am waiting for the 120 film to come in. Does it still work? Do you like shooting with it? I like the shot and how you made it look old, to go with the whole scene! Good work on this!

Hello Werner! Good idea and very good composition. Nice natural lightness. Very nice eeffect. Good luck!

Nice idea and nice effect.
Beautiful tones and good sharpness.

Wow, the camera looks new! The bellows have no worn marks on the fold. Placing all those old photos around it is a nice touch. You are shooting against the light, you should have done it the other way around.

dear Werner,
a tasteful picture of the old camera and your memorial photos.
I like old cameras, especially those with bellows.
in Japan there are rather numbur of enthusiasts of old cameras like this, and the repairing of those is possible.
anyway, this sepia image is very nostalgic to me.
thank you,

A great tribute to the early times of photography and it's equipment. I've got an old Kodak bellows camera that is still in working condition. I love it. This was a great age of camera making and techniques. Thanks for sharing.
