Week 277 - Holga 120 CFN
This is a very basic toy camera, with the addition of a built in flash which has four different filters, selected by rotating the knob on the top. It was in a terrible state when I got it, sticky and fikthy with the batteries corroded and he flash no longer working, and the wind on knob had come off. Also, rather puzzlingly, the swing in Waterhouse stop to reduce the aperture is absent, so there is only one aperture, f8.
I was able to revive the flash by cleaning the contacts, and apart from the problem with the aperture, all seems well.
