Thanks Ken,

The camera had a quality lens but it was only a standard 50mm. Took some real beauties with it and also some real duffers to! The light meter was built in but had given up the ghost by the time I got it.
Still have the camera somewhere for sentimental reasons.

Well your guess work seemed to produce a reasonable shot Derek, it was hard in those days holding up Weston masters to get a reading and having to set the camera, we are spoilt these days.

Try saying that name when you have had a few.!!!

Thanks Allan,

I have a lot more to post but they need a bit of tidying up. I will look out for your posts.
This like many of my early shots was taken with a third hand Voightlander camera. All exposures guessed as the light meter had stopped funtioning!

Hi Derek

Nice shot of an old Neptun built standard. I photographed her as Arni I at Calshot and she had clearly been 'stretched'. I will post a shot of her when I get my scanner.
