Converted Speedliner

I just finished converting my Speedliner to packfilm. I used a back from an Automatic 100 and tried to keep as much of the original camera intact as possible.

Cool Retro Look!

Some of you probably picked this up but it is really a 95B. I just changed the front plate.

The Ideal Rangefinder is not coupled but is still very handy.

These cameras can be fun but they are quite awkward in use. I found it was very important to use the wire frame parallax correction in portraits. The Polaroid meter works but reads in LV. I just add 9 for the EV conversion.

Question for the Mods. Can I put these images in my gallery even though they are not taken with a Polaroid?

Very nice, and something to think about...

Thank you, the converted cameras are a lot of fun. The Pathfinder is the best but I wanted to make something different. I joined your Austin group, maybe I will attend sometime when I travel.
