Paxina II

Newer Older

Eine recht gut ausgestattete 6x6-Tubuskamera des Carl-Braun-Camerawerks Nürnberg, Baujahr 1950. Die genaue Bezeichnung war "Paxina II", es gab noch die "Paxina I" in einfacherer Ausführung mit Meniskuslinse.

Die Paxina II verfügt über ein 3,5/75-mm-Pointar (von Röschlein) und einen Vario-Verschluss mit 3 Moment-Zeiten und "B".

Der Preis war 66,- DM.

    I have just obtained a Paxina but the shutter sticks, if I apply force to bring the cocking lever back it works. Any recomendations WD40 etc.
    Thanks for the contributions allready made I was able to work out what everything does.

    was just wondering what a reasonable price for one of these would be?i found one at a shop in town for $70aus?

  8. alf sigaro 72 months ago | reply

    @Leon: $70 seems me to be a little overpriced - even for a shop. On german (or U.K.) ebay you can find them mostly below 10 Euros. Here two examples for U.K.:
    I think the problem for you are probably the shipping costs if you find somewhat outside Australia. It's really hard to know what to do ...

    i think ill just go see what she says if i put 50 on the table

  10. alf sigaro 72 months ago | reply

    Ok Leon - not bad, this idea. An advise: Try it with 40 $ (or even less)... ;-)

  11. smeavews 72 months ago | reply

    they went for 50,i put a film through it today,got a bit mixed up w/ the film number system so i shot probably 1 roll worth before the film started then sussed the number window jazz,i still need to scan negs though,not quite sure how they went

  12. alf sigaro 72 months ago | reply

    Well, I can imagine that you young people are a little unfamiliar with this antique number window system ;-)

  13. smeavews 72 months ago | reply

    once the numbers started i was fine

  14. alf sigaro 72 months ago | reply

    @Leon: It works! Anyway - a little more light would do well to the pics ... ;-)

  15. smeavews 72 months ago | reply

    yeah i got mixed up which film was in what camera, but yes it works....

    Hallo Alf, auch meine Paxina macht mir große Freude:

    @smeavews and all: you should flock the inside of the cam to lower internal straylight. I did it with selfadhesive black velvet, helps!

    @Reinhold: Du entwickelst selber, wie ich sehe. Hab ich auch mal ... vor 3000 Jahren oder so ;-)
    Aber bald bin ich in Rente ... ;-)
