    In a box of goodies purchased the other day I found a Rollei A26 - one of the stranger designs I have seen in awhile, but definitely pretty neat. I bought some 126 film from JandC and loaded it up. But how do I figure out if the light meter is working?

    Anybody have any experience with these things?

    Thanks in advance.

    You may find some help on the sites of the various Rollei Clubs. Unfortunately I can't remember and possibly it took a mercury battery. What I do recall is that it has a unique dedicated flashgun that clips on to the side. This has built in rechargeable batteries and originally a charger came with the outfit but often this is missing these days.
