Tried this camera out. Didn't know what to expect. These are scans from the photo lab. I will take more photos using 50 ISO film in the future.
Comments welcome.

This is what this camera able to deliver I think at maximum performance, not worst anyway what early Rolleiflex cameras brought to me.
I am happy to see your result, I don't have personal experience with any box camera.

There is nothing more to expect from a box camera as the Tengor.

It's more a collectors item nowadays. Forget it for serious shooting, except you like this look particularly.
There are really better options available for comparable low prices.

Anyway, thanks for sharing. Wink

Thank you for the replies. I will give it another try, but with the 50 ISO film instead of the 100.
Definitely more of a curiosity than a serious camera though, but fun to use.

These are sweet - I can't get nearly as good shots with by Box Tengor, something about the shutter release needs fixing

Thank you. I liked using it, because it was light and simple to use. I have the 6x9 version also, but I haven't used it yet.
Getting a good result was kind of hit or miss. However I think it can improve by seeing what works for each camera.
Sorry yours isn't working properly.
