Week 126 - Boots Pakmatic

This was a charity shop find for £5. It has a range of shutter speeds and an f2.8 lens. There is a built in un-coupled selenium exposure meter, but the settings are all manual. Though branded as a "Boots" camera, it is in fact made by Braun of Nurnberg.
126 film is no longer made, and all that is available is long expired. I have a couple of ISO100 Boots brand films labelled develop before 1996, and have loaded one of these, I set the ISO (or rather ASA) on the meter to 50, as the film will probably have lost some sensitivity with age.
