MR-9 vs LR44 <=> 1.35V mercury vs 1.5V alkaline
Simple way to use LR44 as replacement--it works!
You need some kitchen foil, and some plastic to wrap around the smaller LR44.

Canon G-III QL17


G-III QL17 the Best Seller


喜歡Rangefinder相機的朋友,大概很多都用過這款相機。

昨天剛收到遠從澳洲寄來的Canonet G-III QL17,看見背蓋寫的產地是日本,感到有點意外。因為印象中G-III 很早就移到台灣廠來生產... 根據Canon原廠的說法,G-III從1972年發賣,到1982年停產,長達11個年頭,名列史上最暢銷的相機之一...
(to be continued)

收到的相機閃閃發亮,打開背蓋,連原封的透明塑膠片都還在,也許真的沒有實拍過吧! 雖然包裝盒滿佈塵埃,裡頭的配件和說明,依然整齊擺在塑膠袋裡。 附了兩個古代的水銀電池,讓人期待了一下,可惜測試證明已經沒電了。沒關係,就試試國外同好說的辦法吧: 把手邊的LR44*電池拿來,用塑膠片和鋁箔稍稍加工一下,果然喚醒了睡美人...

*: 用1.5V的LR44電池,理論上測光可能會有些差異。然而以負片試拍的結果,完全看不出有問題。對我來說,這就夠了。
