Here it is !


Here it is !

My new Duoflex 2 and a couple of reels of retro film from 1974!
I bought it at a local flea market a few weeks back, I'd been looking for these things for about two years without any luck, then during the same morning, I came across two of these types of cameras!
I bought the reels of film on ebay, quite cheaply for a just a few euros within France. They arrived just this morning.
I cant describe how much reverence I opened the first package with.
It had no smell and no degradation as far as I could see, but I did notice a bit of rust on the spools.
Sorry for the anal description, but I had to share! O_O
So, now for the hard bit, using such a cumbersome contraption!

It will be interesting to see if the film has matured like a good wine :-)
