Exacta Expired Film

Light leaks, scrapes from the sprocket. Old camera character! Kine Exacta made between 1936 - 48. Zeiss 56mm F2 exacta mount lens. A very unique and beautiful camera, and an ergonomic riddle to use! But tons of fun to shoot this piece of photo history. Exacta apparently produced the very first SLR camera at its plant in pre-war Germany.
That is so cool! Definitely added character from the sprocket. I reminds me of the old films we used to watch in grade school - the effect that is now artificially applied to make motion pictures look old. How cool that must have been to use the old camera. I look forward to your writeup (on that other site) ;-) Fav for me!

You can't quite recreate that on modern cameras, can you? Lovely picture. I'm off to a fleamarket today to try and find another old/interesting camera.

@stray_shooter @domenicododaro @chris667 @joansmor @shylaine3304 Thank you all. It's good for me to mix things up once in a while! The sky was definitely not yellow! Not sure if that is film, light leak, development....either way, it's "character"!

@ribbet9 @deborah63 Thank you....beauty in imperfection. This one has imperfection in spades. While I was sitting in the boat a man called to me to ask a question and I was startled and luckily did not fall out of the boat.
