Craft fair preparations.

It's already late and I still have so many things to do for tomorrow's "Kramy 2011" - a craft fair in Cracow (more about it in THIS post) - those of you from that region are more than welcome to drop by.

Few photos of new stuff and I'm back to work - more can be found on my facebook profile.
Let me introduce new products: headbands, hair pins and finally - earrings!

I should post a photo of my working desk some day - it's such a mess I'm amazed I can still find things on it...

cameras looking for new home.

from upper left corner: Kiev 88, Lubitel 166U, Yashica FRII, Zorki-4.

I'm sad to admit I have to say goodbye to some of my beauties, but I'm limiting all my belongings to just some basic stuff, so i'm looking for a good home for them.
This is a great opportunity to all of you planning to have a try on analogue photography, or just get a new camera for your collection.
You can find photos taken with them (the only one I haven't used is Zorki-4) in my photostream here.
You'll find the cameras descriptions below.
Feel free to contact me for details @ cacheedanslaforet [at] gmail.com
I'll give bonus gifts to every camera.
I can make an etsy listing with a camera of your choice if you want.

[Now on etsy]
The zorki-4 was the first of the zorki cameras to be exported in mass to the west and beyond, and is a real Russian classic. The Zorki family started off as copies of the Leica Screw series, like a lot of Russian cameras did. The basic pre-war Leica design was copied since the thirties (by FED) and after the war continued by KMZ in their Zorki series. 'Зоркий', by the way, means 'sharp-sighted' in Russian.

The type of my copy is 4C, manufactured from 1968 to 1973.
frame size: 24x36.
Shutter: 1-1/30s, 1/60s, 1/125s, 1/250s, 1/500s, 1/1000s + b.

comes with:
  • Industar-50mm f/3,5 lens angle: 45 degrees
  • beautiful leather camera case
  • leather strap
