Week 359 - Ferrania IBIS 44

Ferrania IBIS 44
This is a simple 127 camera, taking 12 square shots per roll. Cosmetically it isn't in very good condition, and she shutter only works on 1/100th and "B", the 1/50th setting also acts as "B". There are two apertures, and a focussing scale, so it's not the very simplest of models.
I've loaded it with a roll of Vera Pan ISO 100 black and white negative film.

Week 358 - Hanimex Snap Shooter

Hanimex Snap Shooter
While checking this camera prior to use, I found that the shutter is faulty, and remains open while the release is pressed, effectively leaving the camera with a permanent "B" setting. It occurred to me that this could make it useful for the forthcoming Guy Fawkes night fireworks, so I loaded it with a Kmart branded disc

Chesterfield Magistrates' Court (disused)
As part of "Red Oktober", which celebrates cameras from the Eastern Bloc, myself and three comrades took a trip to Chesterfield, where this disused court house could easily have come out of the USSR.
