I’ve succumbed to buying a few car boot sale cameras of recent – much to the displeasure of Anita, who points out quite correctly that I already have too many. I bought a tasty looking Carl Zeiss Werra 1 for a fiver, but on initial testing, it looks as though it may have a shutter fault. You can lose money on old film cameras.
I also bought the above Kershaw Penguin Eight-20 folding camera. It came in a nice leather case, complete with manual. I paid ten quid for it. It is quite good condition, but I’d expect the bellows to leak. Anita wanted to try it out, so a few days later, she loaded it with a roll of Foma Fomapan Creative 200 film. Folders are cool.
We developed the film in the evening with ID11, and left it to dry. Results? Well, what about that – no light leaks. Nice job.
