    Recently I was out shooting with a No. 1 Kodak Junior with a B&L rapid rectilinear lens. I grabbed the first roll of film I had (Velvia) and this is the result.

    Not too bad for a 90 year old middle grade camera!

    Very nice indeed! I've never given much attention to these old Kodaks, but looking at this I think I may have been selling their capacities short. I like the way the limitations of the lens come out in the first image; you can see where the focus breaks down in the corners, and that has the effect of pulling your eye back to the centre. Good stuff!
