My Moskva-2 arrived prompty in sturdy packaging. Great service again from Fedka!
The camera itself takes a bit of figuring out but I managed to put a roll of velvia 100 through it and I'm very excited about the results. The 9*6 slides are huge!! I need to figure out how to scan these now....
Taking the camera out of the smelly case results in a unit that fits easily in a coat pocket. With the lens closed its bigger than a leica copy with about half the thickness due to no lens sticking out, so it actually fits better in some pockets that my zorki. Obviously you can't put a 35mm slr in a pocket.....
Pressing the button that causes the camera to pop open is the coolest thing ever. The flip up ranger finder is very cool too.
Its quite simply a mechanical monster thats fun to play with!
So thats the good... heres the not so good...
It doesn't have a cable release and the tripod mount in landscape mode is pretty flimsy....also the viewfinder isn't the greatest and the 10cm lens not particularly wide... so as a tool for landscape photography its not all that great... but hey for $100 who's complaining? Not me!
So all in all... its a fun camera to use thats obviously capable of taking some great pictures under the right conditions and I'll be having a lot of fun with it!
