new acquisition

At £2.50 in a charity shop, I couldn't resist this one. Although I've already got several similar cameras, this one is in very good condition, with nice clean viewfinders. I plan to do some ttv (through the viewfinder) work with this, there are some examples here:
I might also try using it for 'film plane' photos, a technique I've not yet tried, where a piece of ground glass (or more likey a piece of plastic milk carton!) is placed in the film plane, the shutter is kept open using the 'B' setting, and the image is photographed with another (usually digital) camera.
I might even put a film in it at some point!
