My 121mm Schneider SA works like this! First I focus on infinity and than I estimate something which is a 2/3 from infinity toward me than I focus there! I never use the smallest aperture of some reasons but f32 works fine!
Now, my Schneider gives me a sharp image between 2.45 m to infinity. I marked the focusing knob there and just check time to time if itís still there! :-):-) Of course on f45 it would be even closer like 1.95 m but itís not healthy to use that.
In this case I have a fast f stop and just adjust the exposure time. The only time I had to focus is when I would do closer picture but with this camera size would be meaningless! Thatís why I call this one for a big instamatic camera!
What I'm doing now is manufacture a little thing to reposition the shutter cable relise, more to feet for street use! As it is now it's not very good! You got to hold the camera with both hand! If I come up with something usefull you gonna get the drowing to could do the same!
