You're right there, Andy!

And it still works... 55 years isn't too long for precision equipment that's been half-decently looked after.

Quote:a hazard to battery life and card capacity

I guess even more so with film at only 36 shots before needing to reload.

It's a very noisy background here John (not a complaint, an observation, and it does look effective) so was this as scanned?

Keith, it's a fair cop.

The film was old and fast, and the underexposed background made for enhanced grain, in spades.

Nothing added in processing.

Constricted but longing to break free.

You never spoke a truer word, Kate!

She's capable of being every bit as outrageous as Freddie Mercury.

Practica was Exakta's compatriot competitor, I have always had a special fondness for this camera. I never took a serious decision which of the two was better. Especially latest models were almost the same. I had never use neither a Practica Nova 1b nor a Domiplan lens, but here I see it worths. Beautifl idea with the dividing tapes, excellent pose and lighting, John!

My oldest camera is a Comtax precursor that was my mother's, with a collapsible interchangeable 50mm lens. Been years since I used it....or my old and beloved OM-2.

I have seen other hot,poses of Blsck Beauty. She is hot.

A fascinating image with much to ponder, John.
