Week 182 - Bencini Koroll II

This week's camera is something of a record. I was in Milan last week, where the Bencini cameras were made, and spotted one on a flea market I stumbled across, the vendor wanted 5 euros for it, and was keen to explain to me that it was impossible to use as it only took film. I have several Bencine cameras, but not this one, so I bought it, and as our hotel was only a 3 minute walk away, I popped back and loaded it with a roll of Ilford Delta 400 that I'd brought with me along with another Italian camera (the Ferrania Astor from week 176). Less than 15 minutes after acquiring it, I was out on the streets and shooting, so it became camera of the week, jumping the various models ahead of it in the queue!
