By the River

I took this photo with a Leica III, older cameras in my collection.
My one was made in 1934 and this was taken with an Elmar 3.5 5cm lens, also made in 1934.

There's something really cool about shooting with an 83 year old camera.

Unfortunately when I got this roll back, I discovered there's a pinhole in the shutter, not good, but I'm trying to work around it.

Kodak 400TX

So very cool, Sem. I too have a III with the Summar 5cm f2. Much softer than the Elmer, actually. Now posting.

@domenicododaro thanks Domenico, I've got a Summar too, I recently put it on just for the hell of it, it's a bit hazy though, I need to have it cleaned properly. It has a good reputation though, also a bit easier to handle than the Elmar, the aperture setting on the Elmar is crazy.
Having said that, the photos with the Elmar do look suitably old though, probably the Elmar and 400TX combo.
