The Wolf Luxa Six is a little semi-folder I was considering putting on ebay. Having been gifted a few 120 black and white films I thought I'd give it a try.
Its a simple camera 2 (waterstone stop) apertures F7 and f11 and two shutter speeds 25th and 75th. Focusing is done by a knob on the right hand side (as you hold it) which pushes the bellows in and out. The finder is squinty, as all these 50's cameras were, and the release is in a fairly un-natural position. I learned to hold it differently.
The Luxa Six is a Wolf branded Braun Gloriette. Wolf made cameras for Braun.
Using it was nice, the speeds and apertures were designed for older, slow speed films. I was rating this 40 year old FP4 at 25 ASA.

Same problem here. I am planning amongst other things on selling my tamron 500mm "cat". When using it to make some sample shots for the ad i began doubting if i should sell it, because of the nice results i got. In such cases i've set myselve the rule to ask the price of what the item would be worth to me (be it expensive or cheap), if this price isn't met i'll just keep it risking i probably will never use it again. Should however the price be met i can part with it whithout feeling sorry afterwards. Things i really want to get rid of can be sold for silly prices, recently sold a lot five yashica electro's for 30Euros even though i knew i paid a whoie lot more, but was so tired of them taking up space and didn't see any more use for them.
