My new Microcord

Post by davkt » March 12th, 2017, 7:24 pm

Image My new (well older than me but who is counting) Microcord, had my first play with it today but when I came to process the film found my last bottle of film developer was actually fixer so will have to wait a bit to see the results

Nice looking camera. I hope that the film proves that it it is working OK.

Good luck

According to Basil skinners MPP book the Ross Xpres lenses on Microcords could be a bit variable, it wasn't the optics themselves rather the assembly. I've never heard anyone complaining about them though.The Xpres on my Microcord much sharper then the Yashinon on my Yashicamat 124 or Tessar on my Rolleiflex Automat.

You might find this useful http://lostlabours.co.uk/photography/ca ... rocord.pdf it's a précis of the Focal Press Microcord Guide.

Many years ago I owned a Rolleicord Vb, and the performance of the Xenar lens on that was distinctly underwhelming.
