RFLIST: Rangefinder Cameras of ALL Formats
This is a mailing list for ALL makes of Rangefinder cameras in ALL formats,
for BOTH users and collectors (RFList). This includes fixed lens and
interchangeable lens rangefinders. It includes the classic "Big 4" of
Rangefinderdom: Zeiss Contax, Canon, Leica M or Screw Mount, and Nikon
Rangefinders. It also includes compact and not so compact fixed lens
rangefinders, even the Argus C-3. How wide is the format range ? I'm not
sure, but off hand I can think of the Kodak 60 110 rangefinder to the 5x7 Linhof Technika,
with the many and various 2 1/4 roll film rangefinders in between.
Due to recent inventions, digital rangefinders are also covered.
RFLIST list was started August 10, 2000
at Topica, and
transferred to CameraQuest.org on April 4th, 2004
Thanks for Joining!
List Guidelines RFLIST
Flaming and uncivil behavior
on the list is strongly discouraged. Flame posts will get you removed
from the list. Spirited discussion is strongly encouraged, but
be nice to each other.
Please stay on topic with
rangefinder cameras and
photography related posts. Save discussion for such topics as hats, underwear,
war crimes, religion, etc for your private email, instead of uselessly cluttering the
inboxes of List members who subscribed for ON topic discussions.
Email diarrhea: Some lists are
occasionally "attacked" by overzealous members who think they must respond to
practically every post. Please limit your postings to no more
than five per day.
Witty replies: Some lists have
members under the delusion that everyone subscribed to read their often ill conceived
attempts at humor and quick repartee. Please save smart-ass replies for private
email, or the stage if you really are a comedian.
Selling and Buying: Private sellers
or buyers may post their ads any day, but limit your ads to once per week.
Dealer for sale or buying posts of any kind of ads are not allowed, a standard
which I will also follow. If you have questions about something for sale or
wanted, email the person privately instead of posting your question to the list.
Subscribers with anti-SPAM software may NOT require each list poster to
authenticate a message. IF you can't simply authenticate the list, get
new anti-SPAM software, or find another mailing list.
People removed for
not following list guidelines may also be removed from other CameraQuest lists.
People booted off are generally not given warnings, the logic being that if
subscribers don't take the time to read and follow the list guidelines, the
list administrator's time is better spent elsewhere.
To post a message to all the list members
after you are subscribed, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
