reflected self-portrait with Olympus Trip 35 camera and B&Q Kids Club cap, a photo by pho-Tony on Flickr.
In the spirit in which the camera was marketed, I took the Olympus with me on a trip to Coventry and Stratford, I loaded it with a 24 exposure film, but finished this off quite quickly, so loaded it with another.
This is the tomb of the Bishop who oversaw the inception of Coventry Cathedral, I set the focus to the minimum distance, and tried to guess the parallax correction needed to stop the towers overlapping.

Week 120, so I had to choose a 120 camera, and I haven't used one so far this year.
The Ricoh Auto 66 has a selenium meter, and uses a needle match system to set a combination of shutter speed and aperture, the user has no choice over this, only by using "B" or setting the shutter for flash, could you choose which aperture to use.
I've loaded it with a roll of Shanghai GP3 film, which has virtually illegible backing paper markings, not a problem for this camera which uses a frame counter rather than the red window.

Agfa, and various other manufacturers produced a whole range of these cameras, many very simple, some with a full range of adjustments, and others, like this one, somewhere in the middle. The Isomat-Rapid has an automatic exposure system based on a Selenium cell, it still seems to work, though how well will only become apparent when I process the film.
