Date: May 18, 2008
Aperture: 6.3
ISO: 200

This is my Soviet built Moskva-5, cira 1954. Pretty much a part for part copy of the Zeiss Ikonta-C, but with a better lens. This think takes some nice and sharp images with a pretty rich level of contrast. Pair this with some Ilford Pan-F Plus and you're pretty much Ansel Adams. Well, not quite...

I'd like to to better in this challenge than I have in the past few. 5.5+ is good for me.

Good choice of dof, with the interesting front element and mechanical bits n pieces in critically sharp focus. Well composed to show the whole camera.

That's a whole lot of moving parts to be in such good condition! Very nice tones here, especially on the chrome areas.
