Elvis Stamps – issued by the US Postal Service in 1993

I’m not a collector of stamps but most anyone can appreciate a little Elvis to brighten one’s day. I have this small sheet of 29 cent Elvis stamps issued by the US Postal Service commemorating the life of “The King”. They are in mint new condition and haven’t been used. Makes a great gift for yourself or a fan. They’ll be mailed flat and secure and sent via USPS Priority Mail for free!

They are also available in our shop at http://www.ccstudio2380.com

Fuji Panorama Cardia – a plastic fantastic from 1991

One of the first dedicated 35 mm panorama compact cameras from Fuji Photo Film Company. It was available only in Japan and was released in December 1991. Actually a sophisticated camera a notch or two above being just a point and shoot – debateable.

There’s so little information about this wonderful camera on the web, I hope this post helps a bit for those interested in this format and camera.

DSCF2074 (2) (1) (1) (1) (1) (1) (1) (1) (1)

It’s not as basic as it seems. This camera was released for the Japanese domestic market in December 1991 and listed for 15,800 JPY (about $123 USD).

It’s a dedicated panorama format 35 mm film camera (13 x 36 mm actual image size). The panorama setting is not adjustable.

1. Opens and closes the lens cover and when closed locks the shutter button.

2. Flash on/off switch.

3. Fujinon 28 mm f8 glass lens – 3 elements in 3 groups. The fixed focus lens focuses from 1.5 m to infinity switchable to landscape mode.

4. CdS light receiver.

5. Two position ISO selector switch.

6. Landscape Mode Switch “Far-view Mode Lever”.

7. Albada bright frame finder.

8. Shutter release button.

9. Manual strobe/flash.

The aperture is “automatically” adjusted for lower light levels and the camera will give a low-light warning in the viewfinder. It’s been reported by a Japanese blogger that the aperture was capable of f4 to f16 but that is not backed up by data from Fujifilm that I can find.

The shutter is fixed to fire at 1/100th of a second.

I’ve scanned a few pages from the instruction pamphlet (below).

Take notice of the clearly marked “CdS light receiver” vice exposure meter. It could be just a difference in the machine translation from what was meant in the original Japanese text.

IMG_20190527_0005 3

Specifications from Fuji confirms that the lens is a Fujinon f8 28 mm wide angle with glass optics – 3 elements in 3 groups (you’ll find that info in line 4).

In the Shop – Fun with Fuji

I’ve added these hard to find classic Fuji cameras in my camera shop recently. These are all considered to be still “new in the box” and in factory mint condition. Here’s your chance to add these totally unused (but tested) 35mm film cameras from the late 1980s and early 1990s.

These are available at http://www.ccstudio2380.com

Timeless Tuesday – Hippie Strap

Here’s a bit of throwback photo gear from my collection – it’s time to pass it along. This one is very lightly used and was actually on display with one of my 1970s Yashicas. It’s about 1.5 inches wide and about 36 to 40 inches long as it is adjusted now so it’s a nice long camera strap that’s perfect as a neck or shoulder strap.

DSCF2035

It has nice leather accents and the metal clips are shiny and bright.

DSCF2037

Great colors and an awesome vintage pattern.

DSCF2042

It holds two film canisters (film cans if you’re going old school) and the underside is a soft suede-like material.

DSCF2041

It’s available in my studio shop at http://www.ccstudio2380.com – lots of other neat items in the shop at 10% off too! – Chris

New in an open box is this hard to find Fujifilm Instax Mini 50S in Piano Black.

Check it out!

DSCF0086

SOLD – Thank You! SeaLife Reefmaster RC automatic exposure 35mm film camera and armored underwater housing good to 164 feet! Like new, super clean, and in mint condition. Includes the 3X Macro Lens and Color Compensating Filter, and a roll of Fujicolor. It takes (2) AA batteries. Works great above and below the water.

DSCF9959

Very nice (and rugged) Atan nylon lens case. It’s been used but not abused. Padded inside with a drawstring closure it’s the perfect case for people on the go. Includes a super long shoulder strap. About 6.5 inches tall so it will hold a short telephoto and smaller lens.
