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
  • 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.

  • SPAM Software: 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.
