photo from week 179 - Petri 607

The Petri 607 has an automatic exposure system in which the aperutre is stopped down according to how bright the light is. It all seemed to be working, but as soon as I put the cartridge in it stopped, leaving the aperture at f2.8 all the time. This risked causing significant over-exposure, though the very old film could probably do with some extra light. I decided to take a few shots and then transfer the cartridge to another 126 camera. This is the first frame, luckily this camera has a focussing lens, so I was able to overcome the lack of depth of field associated with using full aperture.
