    My Father-in-law had one of these and took some beautiful colour slides with it. It is also a camera with superb design.

    Welcom Carlos. When I'm in a rangefinder mood I shoot a Retina IIIc. Retinas are really solid cameras and have a great lens. Try some FP4+, it'll knock your sandals off!

    Carlos , Welcome to APUG ! Here is the link for kodak retina IIa camera , manual is at the down of page , color or bw and 2 megabyte. You will need acrobat reader from adobe.com free.
    Your camera and lens is at the top and better than all modern japanese cameras , especially than the digital ones.
    For color , you can use Ektachrome as slide and Ektar as negative.
    Tri X is matches with these cameras excellently. If you need chemical,film,tank etc , use APUG classifieds. Open an paypal account to yourself and trade with anywhere in the world
