Elliott Hemeon Thanks for sharing info on your equipment. I am wondering Isolette vs Mamiya 7, is the Isolette as sharp as the Mamiya 7 ?

Paul Copsey Hi Elliott, Both these rangefinders are Leica sharp, If you take into account all the others features of a quality lens such as optical aberrations, ghosting etc then the Mamiya wins.
Both are Medium Format (120 film) and both are rangefinders … but both cameras are very different. The older Isolette is either a single coated lens or not coated at all, this gives a wonderful old lens flare. Furthermore, the Isoly is like having a Rolls Royce engine in a Volkswagen as the lens quality far exceeds the quality of the camera body. On the other hand the mamiya 7 is like having a Maserati engine in a Maserati. The advantage of the Isoly is that it folds and can fit easily into a jacket pocket. The advantage of the Mamiya 7 is that it has all the modern quality features such as a light meter. Both these rangefinders are whisper quiet and a joy to use.

SeanG Small sensor cameras simply do not appeal to me. May as well use the iPhone 4.

Paul Copsey Hi Sean, well yes but I know where you are coming from but I am not looking at this as a serious camera, I want it for happy snaps. Also sensor size much larger than iPhone and the lens is to die for . PS have a read here about my thoughts on using phones for happy snaps http://www.paulcopsey.com.au/happysnaps/what-makes-a-good-happy-snap-camera/
