p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · This should be fun!


Years ago, I remember packing my dad's old 35mm camera away. For the past year or so, I've been hunting for it. Never could find it.

Well, today, while looking for something totally different: I FOUND IT!

Dad says he bought it at the PX while serving in the Army at Salzburg Austria around 1950-1. But the online data shows it was made in 1960-3. So I suspect he had a camera earlier than this one. But still...... DAD's CAMERA! And it's ALMOST as old as I am!







Everything seems to work. I have some other stuff I gotta do today, so I won't have much time to test it out. But if it still functions, I'm gonna buy some film and take 'er out for a spin.

And THAT will be FUN!

Just got the roll finished, developed and scanned.

Nothing earth-shattering to LOOK at, but I just wanted to test the camera out to see if the shutter, aperture and selenium cell all work.
