Welcome to 52 Cameras, in which I take a weekly stroll through the wonders of film photography.
My example dates from about 1955. It has single-stroke film advance and a Summilux 1.4/50mm lens. I have a Leicameter MR add-on light meter for it, but I usually shoot without it. The meter works well and provides a nice semi-automatic exposure function, but I feel it degrades both the ergonomics and the appearance of the camera. It’s just a preference.
I have loaded a roll of Portra 400, so I should be able to handle whatever light the weekend throws at me. (Edit: results)
