Re: ...Arghhh!

Or Zenit

My first slr was a Zenit. Weighed a ton and had a match needle selenium light meter on the top plate with the receptors just above the lens.

Certainly made one learn about the science of photography.


.

No auto exposure, stop down metering ..... nothing, but boy, did I enjoy it

Good luck & and let's hope it's a 'Blad or similar

Re: ...Arghhh!

I have my Grandad's Zenit amongst other old camera bits and bobs, it's an experience using it, and it is a brick-like in weight, mine does not look as well cared for as Steve's though

Fingers crossed it's a 'blad
