Another of my analogue viewfinder cameras. The kodak Retinette IIA, this model was only build in 1959 and 1960. So its a pretty old beastie. Completly manual with quite a good build quality.The lens is a Schneider kreuznach 45mm f2.8. The great feature on this one are the 2 red arrows yoy see on the lens. As you change your aperture they open or close and gives you a scale for dof, a fun feature. The camera works fine ,He selects the shutterspeed himself as you come in the darker parts of the day the shutterspeed is than constantly around 1/35s. Also you can choose bulb mode. f stops from 2.8 to 22.
So I loaded him with an Ilford HP5 monochrome film that I still had . This film is noisy, I like a bit of noise but this I find a bit to much.
So here are some results.
You can pick these old cameras up for almost nothing, why not give the m a second life. And the look good also, a bit of vintage.
