Last weekend the Finnish photohistorical society held its annual fleamarket, and I did buy one FSU-camera since long time of silence. Just couldn't resist a reasonably priced, fully working Komsomolets 1948. Even finder is still clear to see through. One small cracked bit in the back door surrounding, but not a light leak place.

PS: She is fond of me collecting TLR's as we have lately seen so many great photographers exhibitions, photos taken with a TLR

Best regards,

Bravo for this purchase. But it's not your first TLR, if I understand
Some years ago, I saw an exhibition by Vivian Maier. I could not resist and I bought a Rolleiflex. What a deception! The camera was perfect (I still use it with a great pleasure), but not me...

Amitiés. Jacques.

No, not the first, but actually I have never been so much into using TLR, as I never got into my muscle memory how to turn the camera as image is mirrored. Also nobody in our family used a TLR, I was born to the 35 mm camera surrounding.
And yes, Vivian Maier,s exhibition was also here in Finland some years ago. We have a pretty active national museum for photography, plus Tallinn with Fotografiska is close :)

Best regards,
Juhani
