The first photos are taken.
But it will take some time until we can see any result. I have absolutely no idea how these will look but I am pretty sure that they are sharp 🙂 It was a bit tricky to watch through the seeker from above but thankfully a previous owner has made some changes so I didn’t have to see the objects I photographed up side down 🙂 That was fairly common in the old cameras but it could be fixed by changing something inside the camera.
It took some time until I understood why it was impossible to wind to the next photo after taking the last one. One sort of winds a spring in the camera so as soon as the photo is taken and the protective plate (there’s a protective plate in front of the film in the cassette just in case one would accidentally release it from the camera which was the first thing I did 🙂 ) is back on place. The shutter button stays pressed down and I need to release it before I put in the plate, when I’ve done that it’s possible to wind the spring again. Easy 🙂 🙂 🙂
No special objects this first film roll but I have to say some of them refused to come and when I forced them they looked as if I was torturing them 🙂 I also used both lenses I have and followed the cheap sheet in most photos but tried some adjustments myself too of course 🙂 I had the camera on my tripod to get it as steady as possible and I do hope it helped. I think the best thing is to release the camera from the tripod when walking elsewhere because it was a bit tricky to keep control of it all with that heavy camera on it and it has happened with my other cameras that it just released the camera itself 🙂
I think I’ll wait to photograph with this camera again until I get back this film roll. I’ve written down every adjustment I’ve done before taking the photo so I’ll know what I did to each and every of them. If they turn out good I just carry on like this if not I might need to actually learn how to use this camera 🙂 🙂 🙂 It was fun though and it takes no time to take twelve photographs. I must admit that I do like the wonders of technology so that we now days can delete a bad photo the second after we’ve taken it 🙂
I’ve taken lots of photographs during these days when I’ve shown the photographs from our walk and I’ll use them as spares when it is too dark to take photos after work. The sun is now going dow just after 6pm so it won’t take long until that happens and I must start to save photographs taken during the weekends again.
It’s time for a pot of coffee (I forgot to buy tea but thankfully I still have coffee at home 🙂 ) and after that I think I’ll take a nap.
Have a great day!
