Rangefinders
#1
Along with the other 21 things going on in my camera bags, I have decided to venture into a rangefinder. I have picked up a camera that is 60 yrs old. (just a bit younger than the glacier that will be holding it) It has a 'good' reputation and very innovative features for that era. I have bought a Konica IIIA. I picked it up at a second hand store for $26.00cad , and it is mint. Lens cap is missing, as is the hood. It has spent considerable time in the REAL leather case, that does not 'smell' of a basement.  I plan on sending it out for some cleaning and adjustments. My wish is to use this with my A7 for street shots in B&W. My challenge is..what film to use. I have not touched a roll of film in 20 years and a lot has changed...any ideas?
  P S.. If anybody has a lens cap and hood (or a parts camera) that they would be willing to part with I would be interested.
