Hi,

Any gallery of pictures taken by a Ciro-flex around?

Did not find any!

Thanks,

Francis

I don't think there are any. Maybe you could supply us with some? the TLRs do get the short shrift around here

There is a Ciroflex gallery, although the text isn't in English. He has other cameras, including a Leica M3 with 1.0 Noctolux(!) The Ciroflex photos on his site are of extremely high quality, and I have since purchased an old Ciroflex to try it out for myself.

Hi,

Interesting pictures. I also done some test with my ciro-flex. I take a roll of Superia 100 around my house. All pictures has been done at 1/25 to 1/60 and f/8 to f/11. You could see the result here:

I just by my self a new Ciro-flex but this time with a 83mm Tessa-type
f/3.2 Woolens Raptar. It's 4-element. I will posting more picture in the future.

I also found this paper about american TLR. Very interesting!!!

Fell free to leave comments on the picture have if they are just snap shot. They where taken to see the quality of the lens.

Thanks

Francis

Les,

I could supply you with just a few, but they are good.... Some dramtically lit shots of my father, Lamey's Diner at the Henry Ford Museum, by father's 1919 Model T Ford in East Toledo's Christmas parade a week ago, a climber at Planet Rock indoor climbing gym in Pontiac, MI.

They're scanned prints, very detailed. I've been shooting 35mm for over 20 years, and these are some of the best photos I've ever taken.

FWIW, I spend my time split between Luckey OH and Dearborn MI, so I'm not too far from you.

Care for a crummy, rush-processed contact sheet of my first roll of PAN F put in my grandfather's Ciro-Flex?

Here are a couple shots taken in the past month with a Ciro-Flex Model C, which had belonged to my girlfriend's late father.

Cat at fireplace:



Sunset near Woodville, Ohio:



Ah, here's another, of my father, taken this past Thanksgiving:



Dad's Model T Ford, taken at the 2004 east Toledo Christmas parade:



Lamey's Diner, in the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan:




My 50,000 mile Suzuki DR-350 dual-purpose bike:



Sledding in Michigan with my 10 y/o son:



Hoping the photos are enjoyed, while realizing that there are many folks here who could probably do better.

What year is the "T"? Every fourth of July or so a showroom fresh Model T with the top down and 4 to 6 passengers in era correct dress drive thur the parking lot where I work in Foster City, Ca. The "T" has only one brass tail light on the left.

The T is a 1919. Dad has two, a 1919 and a 1927. He's been putting about 10,000 miles a year on them, roughly. Has to base that on fuel consumption, as T's don't have speedometers or odometers. While I don't know how to drive one (it's not a stick and it's not an automatic exactly), I have ridden perhaps several thousand miles in them as well. It's a good experience, and about as close as we come to sharing an interest. He doesn't kayak or ride motorcycles or take pictures, but we do share an interest in mechanical things and nature, so he does appreciate the old camera and the kayak and the motorcycle and my own trips.

Lotta similarities between the T and my Ciro-Flex. In both cases, modern supporting products (oil, lubes, and film respectively) let those old products perform better than ever.

And in both cases, the T's and the CF's modern counterparts have electronic controls, but are otherwise not all that different in concept from current offerings. Four wheels, a roof and an engine... A black box you put film into, with a lens on the front. Not much has really changed - Shrug.

On the T, you manually adjust fuel mixture and spark timing (based on your knowledge of the situation), both duties done by electronics on modern cars.

On the Ciro-Flex, you adjust focus, shutter, and aperture based on your knowledge of the situation.

Both are a slower way of doing things than their modern counterparts, and that's not all bad.

Both require more of a relationship, more working knowledge, than their modern counterparts - again not a bad thing, for those who interface well with machinery.

I'm sort of a technical kind of guy, so I like that aspect. Though I do prefer a modern car (or motorcycle) on long trips, and I do shoot sometimes with my modern Nikon 35-SLR when that's the better tool for what I'm trying to get.

Just my .02
