52 Cameras: Week 51 part 2 – Zeiss Ikon Ikonta 524/16

Fresh Kodak Ektar 100 film.

There is a dent in the camera back that went through to the pressure plate. It doesn’t affect the focus much but you can tell the edge where it is pushed closer to the lens. All speeds are the camera setting but “ish”. I know the shutter is slow but not by how much.

Dead budgie -- f/5.6 at 1/300.

Overcast with intermittent rain so it was a blue day but either the film or the scanner added more blue. Maybe both. Surfing for info, the film is bluish but can be corrected with a UV filter or by using a scan profile for Ektar.

I’ll post about the ongoing restoration in a couple of weeks.
