Thanks rawhead for pointing out the reduction of exposed area. The only limiting thing on the pola 250 is that it's lacking a nice flash to strobe with the ISO80 film. I'm using a vivitar pc connected flash now and then which I have to hold with one hand while focussing the viewfinder with the other hand. You can imaging the laughter when I'm popping up with this combo on my friends parties. I will have to make a fixed connection to hold the flash on it's proper place besides the camera in order to focus more ergonomically/precisely/faster.
