    Silas has a Bessa R3a - and a deliberate mistake

    Hi there
    Well, he's the culprit, having been shooting a lot of film recently. In our ebay shenanigans he has ended up with a Voigtlander Bessa R3a - which is a lovely camera - like a film version of the RD-1, and with a boggling 1xmagnification rangefinder - great for above 40mm.

    Here he is with his new toy







    Can you spot the deliberate mistake?

    Well done . . . except that makes two deliberate mistakes
    He loves that 1:1 finder as well.

    You can't focus the lens with the finder?

    Good thinking . . . but that wasn't the point.

    in the second shot he is looking at the back of the camera, but it's not digital, there is nothing to look at, there!

    Actually, I think it was a 15 CV and he was looking at the subject.
    No, the deliberate mistake is that the third of my shots was actually taken with an m9 rather than an M7 - trivial stuff!

    all the best

    Cool adventures in film! And ahhh, all that dust on the negatives. Brings back wonderful memories of air cans and brushes and spot tone.

    Yes indeed . . . and I got rid of most of it too! More care required.
