I was thinking the other night that I’d like another camera to compliment the one I got for the trip. It needed to use the same film, but be much smaller and easier to carry around. So I started to troll ebay looking for likely candidates. After putting several bids in on Rolleiflexes (c’mon people, you gotta outbid me, mine is a pittance) I realized that I already owned what I was looking for. It’s an old Soviet camera from the 50’s that I bought on a whim several years ago but never got around to using. I had actually lent it out to someone and she told me that it worked pretty well. I put some film in it yesterday after work and picked it up today. It works! It works well! It’s sharp and light. It is a bit clunky and awkward, but I’m willing to live with that so that I can have a cheap camera that does what I want
Isn’t she a beaut?
