Happy SUNday! – Father’s Day

Me with my son Tim a few years ago.
My dad (Paul) on a pony around 1919 or so. Why I like this picture so much is that it was taken near where he grew up in Brooklyn. His dad was a delivery man for Borden’s Milk and drove a horse drawn wagon to make his deliveries. My dad grew up around horses and while in the CCC during the Great Depression was responsible for taking care of the horses they used while on site.
My family together for our annual family vacation. Lindsay, me, Carol, and Timothy.

Happy SUNday! – found boxes!

Not that they were lost, just the pics (more like hidden from myself). Sadly most of these items including the gorgeous Canon AE-1 Program have been passed on to other collectors (sold). But collections are meant to be dynamic and that’s most of the fun. Chasing down those items you’ve always wanted for your favorite cameras.

This was an awesome camera and super fun to use! If you’re chasing a Canon AE-1 don’t overlook this better version of the original – it even gives the A-1 a run for the money.
Bits and bobs from my Yashica collection over the years.

Classic Klipsch KG 1.2 2-way Loudspeakers

Back in the mid-1990s these were highly respected speakers and in some areas of the country sometimes hard to find. They are without a doubt (for the money) the best 2-way bookshelf speakers made and were the perfect rear channel speakers in a theater surround sound system. I purchased these new at the Jacksonville (Florida) Sound Advice store in 1996.

Consecutive serial numbers!

KG 1.2

From Klipsch… The two-way KG Series KG 1.2 bookshelf loudspeaker was first introduced in 1992 and manufactured by Klipsch until 1994. While no longer in production KG 1.2 model loudspeakers are still owned and listened to by Klipsch fans around the world as part of two-channel audio and home theater surround sound systems. To connect with other people who are passionate about audio and interested in Klipsch products visit our open forum bulletin board.

These classics from another era are available in my online camera shop at http://www.ccstudio2380.com If you’re into classic audio sound then these hard to find speakers are for you.

Fujica GW690 Professional – medium format photography on a grand scale

A true classic from Fuji Photo Film Company. Have you ever thought about trying this camera? You won’t be disappointed. Chris

Chasing Classic Cameras with Chris

fujica gw690 2The Fujica GW690 Professional from Fuji Photo Film Company – November 1978. It’s a rather hefty medium format 120/220 roll film camera capable of producing images at an amazingly large 6 x 9 cm.

fujica gw690 Loaded with Fujifilm Neopan 100 Acros.

Its original list price was ¥143,500. The camera features a non-interchangeable EBC Fujinon 90mm f/3.5 lens (5 elements in 5 groups) and a Seiko #0 leaf shutter with settings for T, 1-1/500 second. It weighs “just” 1,430 grams. No batteries needed as there is no built-in exposure meter. Simply focus the easy to use rangefinder, meter via a handheld meter (or phone app), set your aperture and shutter speed and you’re good to go. By the way, this beast produces 8 super sharp images so you can eat through a roll of 120 film in a hurry.
