Week 231 - Zeiss Ikon Taxona
The Taxona is unusual in that it takes square negatives on normal 35mm film. It is a later version of the Tenax I that I used in week 48. The square format is not the only unusual feature, it also has a single lever which both winds on the film and cocks the shutter, then acts as the shutter release.
Although everything works perfectly without a film, once loaded it becomes very stiff, and sometimes the film winds on without the shutter being set. I suspect there may be problems this week...
