Film Photography part 2

The experiment on film photography continued. This time we're using Zeiss Ikon Box Tengor camera with Kodak Ektar 100 & Argus C3 cameras with Fujifilm.

Zeiss Ikon Box Tengor

Zeiss Ikon Box Tengor 56/2

German made box camera from early 1950s has three focus settings & three aperture settings.


We accidentally opened the spool outdoor & 'burned' the film before put it inside, creating interesting results with flare-like edges. The camera is a bit tricky to use since it has three different focus & aperture settings. From eight exposures only one has decent result. Others are blurry, out-of-focus & overexposed. But still, not bad for 60 years old camera.

Argus C3

Argus C3

American made bakelite rangefinder camera, also from the early 1950s. The shutter speed range B to 500 and the aperture 3.5 to 16. The result? See for yourself.

Look at those hairs. Amazing old lens!

Sharp & crisp objects in the far distance.

One with interesting result: double exposure photo. Note: Argus C3 has no double exposure prevention mechanism.

More about the results are in our Flickr page.
