Weekend work: I made pictures to visualize the different revisions of construction of the CURTA Type I calculator (4 diefferent Curtas, nine views). I used my GF1 with the Retro Lumax 1:3.5/35 - an English Lens from around the same time period as the Curtas.

Very cool subject. Kinda looks like a cross between a camera lens (wish my calculator had knurling), a coffee grinder, an abacus, and a hand grenade (what does happen when you pull the pin?)

Shots came out nicely, too.

hold on a minute..... those things are calculators? they look like pepper grinders or a handheld enigma machine lol

very nice shots. though the close ups on the site you linked have a little flare. the shot of the 4 curtas above has a better contrast, probably because you darkened the background slightly.
