Week #7 - Kalimar A & Sensia

The Kalimar A, a scale focusing camera, and one that I have used as a "Challenging Perceptions" ideology for photography.  Lets face it, a triplet lens, slow shutter speeds (4 actually) of 1/25s, 1/50s, 1/100s, and 1/200s, plus "B".
Not exactly a plethora of shutter speeds.  But it doesn't need to be.  I've learned that a triplet lens is not just sharp, but a great surprise when you see what images you get from that camera.
Sure enough, this time around was no different.  The thought of putting E6 film in a camera that has no light meter, and a simple shutter, added more of a challenge to it.  Not to mention, making sure to get the focal distance correct, especially at close range!

I'm so happy I have a lot of practice and gauging distances, as the images, even close up, are sharp, and well exposed.

So take a look, let me know what you think of a simple camera doing more fancy work.

Until next time, keep those shutters firing!
