Week 76 - Franka Solida II

I acquired this camera many years ago, I can't remember where I found it, possibly a jumble sale, I didn't pay much for it. Made in the 1950s, it takes 12 square (6cm x 6cm) photos on 120 rollfilm, but also has a mask to allow you to take 16 4cm x 4cm exposures, presumably to use in the "superslide" mounts which were in use at the time.
The Prontor SVS shutter has a full range of speeds from 1 sec to 1/300, and the lens is an f3.5 80mm Xenar.
I will be loading it with a roll of expired (1979) Kodacolor 400 film.
