Week 57 - Ilford Sportsmaster

Ilford Sportsmaster, originally uploaded by pho-Tony.
A quick mid-week substitute, as the Nikkorex 35 is faulty.
I've had this camera for ages, I can't remember where it came from, possibly a car boot sale, I've never used it before.
The Sportsmaster has an unusual feature - there is no focusing ring, but it has four shutter releases, each one for a different distance, when the button is pressed, the lens is moved forward to a preset position. There is a built in selenium exposure meter which can be used in a fully automatic mode.
Having loaded it, I've found that the exposure counter doesn't work, so I'll have to try to keep track of how many I've taken.
