It has no remote cord connection and I didn't know it has a timer or not.
I was deep in trouble how can I make pictures at 1/15 s on light cheap tripod. If you see pretty bad sharpness it is come from this fact and cheap print film never goos as slide for scanning.

Hi-res images are here

Camera made in 1937 , lens around that don't know when.



#1 handheld , untouched

#2 tripod, 1/15 f4 modified contrast

#3 handheld,untouched

#4 handheld,untouched

#5 tripod, 1/15 f4 modified contrast

Good job Attila,
number 2 and 5 are my favourites, the light is magic.

Thank you! It was deep in forest on a sunny day I wish to back with my lovely folder and repeat again on slide.

I REALLY like the tonality in #4, Attila. One thing about print film, is that thought the colors are muted, they seem very true to life. Of course, I am anxious to see the same types of images from the slide film. Cool

It surprised me too, not easy to get this result from simple print film.
I think I will make one more series on slide just hard to decide should I use Velvia or Sensia. With Velvia I need a sturdy tripod what I don't have yet and my Sensia 200 slides are pretty crap. Let we see this lens and camera did show it's capability now need to put good slides YES!

Attila, with rangefinder and small format you can shoot at 1/20 quite safely if you hold your camera well
(some people say they can reach 1/10 and 1/5 but I doubt that)
