I finally got my first roll of Ilford HP5+ black and white film back from the developers after running it through my newly acquired Fed 3 Russian Rangefinder camera from the 70′s.
As you can see by the pictures, The old brick still works nicely. I am quite pleased with the results especially given that I’ve never shot black and white and rarely shoot film and through a camera almost 50 years old. One day I plan to learn how to develop my own film. It’s on the To-Do list.
I also shot colour film with another old Russian Rangefinder camera – the Zorki 4k. Unfortunately, the shutter curtain has light leaks and not the cool Lomo light leaks either so until I can figure out how to fix it, that camera will be shelved. It’s unfortunate because in the short time I’ve used both the Zorki 4k and the Fed3, I much prefer the Zorki – bigger, clearer view finder and a longer body compared to the Fed 3′s small rangefinder prism and it’s fat body shape.
