    Ole,

    I am so looking forward to shooting that camera. It will be a treat. Don't drop it overboard! Oh and can you pump up a few more barrels to drop the gas price? Thanks. LOL

    The shutter works, on all three speeds (25, 50 and 100) plus B. There is no double exposure lock, though...

    Bellows look very good, the rest of the camera looks at least light tight.

    I get home from here on the 18th (with any luck), will then use that weekend to shoot a test roll after checking the shutter speeds. Then I'll write a little manual, and send it out on it's journey!

    Thanks Ole.

    I'm off the rig, and got ready to send the camera yesterday. Then I happened to look through the lens on a bright sunny day...

    It needs another clean. Or maybe I'll give up and send another camera? I have a suitable Bessa-I as well, in decent shape but missing the release on the body. I can put a cable release on it, a short old one which can be left inside the closed camera.

    Anyone mind a Bessa instead of a Balda?

    No problems here. I'm familiar with Bessas anyway... never used a Balda.
