So, my hubby did well. He got me a Hongmei 5 - a MF TLR. It just arrived today from China. I don't have any snaps of it to show, but there's a lever on the lens - opposite the shutter cocking lever - that's colored red. Pushing it down and then releasing the shutter only results in clicking, though it seems like it could maybe be a timer? If the shutter is cocked and then the red lever is pushed, it doesn't seem to make a difference except that the shutter then hangs up and takes some fiddling to get it all working right. Overall, it looks like it's in good shape and I can't wait to try it out.
