    Favourite camera

    Well.... one of my faves anyway.



    I took this shot today of my Voigtlander Bessa R3M 35mm film camera. It's a thing of beauty and the lens, which cost more than the camera, is superb!



    And a couple of photos I took with it a while back.

    Nope - Voigtlander Bessa R3M 35mm film camera. The 2 pix above were shot on Kodak TMax400 film and developed by me.

    That Trip looks like what we call the Olympus Pen.
    Never had one. I instead used the Olympus OM2N.
