    I love it! Looking through the viewfinder looks almost 3D. It is so cool! I've got my first roll of film in it and can't wait to get somewhere interesting to take pictures! I wandered around the yard and took a couple of pics but will have to wander around town and find something more interesting to shoot. Just had to share with others who may understand!

    Ha, what a coincidence, I sold you the camera. Glad you like it, and glad to hear it arrived safe and sound. It's basic, but it should be able to take some good shots. I was a bit reluctant to sell it since it was my first TLR also, but I just got a Mamiya 645 system and a Minolta Autocord. That Graflex would have sat on the shelf unused, so I'm happy that someone will be getting some use out of it. I have waaayy too many cameras, a little over 30, so I gotta start thinning out the "collection".

    Well I love it! I've been wanting a TLR but the prices kept me away. This one was just right! I'm sure it will lead to more medium formats in the future but it is perfect for now!

    TLRs are underrated and can take some amazing photos. Most are under $200 these days.
