Rangefinders
#7
adam,
it appears as though developing will not be an issue. Here's the story..I was bidding on this camera and "had it" for 26 dollars. Then another bidder jumped in and he brought it to 100 dollars. I dropped out. He asked why I dropped out, I told him that there was an issue with the shutter and it will need repair before use. He said"you really wanted it didn't you, what where you going to do with it?" I told him" it was to be repaired then used on the streets of Toronto. " I was going to shelf it with my others, I'll tell you what, I'll drop my bid , you get it and I want to see some results from the camera". I agreed. We traded email addresses and I contacted him after I sent it in for repair. Turns out he is a portrait photographer shooting 4x5 and 8x10. The 8x10 was 110 years old, and he has full darkroom facilities. We talked for a couple of hours, So now I have a new friend, a darkroom to use and back into developing which I loved to do as a young man. Now, just need the camera in hand...
