photo from week 156 - Belair X 6-12

The shutter on the Belair will stay open for several seconds in low light, so I used a tripod for this one, test firing with the lens cap still on suggested that the auto exposure was likley to under-exposue, so I changed the ISO setting to 50 (I was using ISO400 film) to compensate for this. There is no cable release socket on this camera, and camera shake is an ever present danger, but I seem to have got away with it here.


  1. No cable release? What do those cost, eight cents?

    1. I agree, it was an oversight not to include a cable release socket, this seems to be the single most common complaint so far from users.
