I've just purchased an Ilford Sportman late 1959 model from a charity shop,
It appears to be in almost perfect condition.
I really like how raw and basic the controls are for this camera, offering shutter speeds of B,25,50 and 200
The aperature range is from f2.8 to f16
in the instruction booklet, it states that a medium speed film can be used with a shutter speed of 50 and aperature of f11 to use the camera for snap shots.
The medium speed film they suggest is "fp3" which I found had an iso ranging from 64asa (in 1951) and 125asa(in 1960). This is confusing as I'm new to film photography.
