Rolleing in the deep - Part 2: It's here!

December 20, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

It's here! I could barely contain the excitement, nor the (slight) trepidation too, which was only natural when you have bought a 60 year old piece of kit off the internet without ever having physically set eyes on it! But once I saw it, held it, and picked my jaw up off the floor, well… take a look.

 

 

It really is a joy to behold and experience an instrument that has been put together with such obvious care and precision. There are no tacky plastics here, no mass-produced panels. Despite it's age the mechanics and levers are smooth as butter and snap and click into place as though they delight in the act!

 

Now I just have to wait for my first roll of film to arrive - some Ilford HP5+ for black and white work, and Kodak portra 400 for colour. Until then I'll just sit here and twiddle these dials just for the tactile pleasure of it!
