Week 32 - Foth Derby

Foth Derby, originally uploaded by pho-Tony.
The Foth Derby is a folding 127 roll film camera made by the C.F. Foth & Company (Berlin) from 1931-1936. It takes sixteen 3x4 cm frames per roll. This camera has a cloth focal plane shutter with speeds from 1/25th to 1/500th + B. The lens is a f3.5 50mm Foth Anastigmat. I have never used this camera before, it seems to work OK, but time will tell whether there are light leaks, and if the focal plane shutter runs smoothly. I've loaded it with a roll of Efke 100 B&W film.
