    I wanted something larger...

    ...and got me this Balda Super Baldax.

    But that thing is so small for a 6x6.
    Just put a test roll in (9 years expired Kodak, gift from my local camera shop ).

    The second seems a little bit slow, but I'll see when I get the film developed.

    Anyway I already love the coupled rangefinder and that beautiful Syncro Compur.
    The lens is made by Enna Werke, which should be known by those who are into Alpa gear. The glass is flawless, maybe Leitz should have taken a look at this, when they produced their Summitars and other lenses from back then.

    Congratulations, Ollie. Lets see some photos! She certainly is a beauty--they don't make them like that any more.

    Lovely folder! Baldas are beautiful.

    I had a Balda 645 folder once upon a time. Exquisite little thing, if a little lightly built. (The Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta A was a bit bulkier but had a much sturdier front standard.)

    Ah, the good old days. Like to see some of your photos with it.

    Rangefinder is nearly alligned and even the second works.

    I'm happy :-)

    Sorry for the quality, but remember the film expired in 2001
    and additionally I had to scan the prints...
