Week 73 - Pentina M

Pentina M, originally uploaded by pho-Tony.
This week it was third time lucky when it came to selecting my camera. The first two had problems (hopefully solvable) so the Pentina has been drafted in at the last minute.
I've been putting off using this camera as it has no strap, and the lugs for attaching a strap do not work with any of the various straps I've got. I spent an inordinate amount of time cobbling together a way to attach a strap, but it seems to work.
The camera was made in East Germany between 1963 and 1964, it has a leaf shutter and interchangeable lenses using its own proprietary bayonet mount.
The lenses are 30mm, 50mm, 85mm and 135mm.
I'm going to put a roll of Poundland Kodak ColorPlus in it.
