    Yesterday I got back my photos from Jessops, and they came out great!
    Not bad for a 40 year old camera I go off Ebay for £4.99, and that was
    99p for the camera the rest was postage! I bet it hadn't been used for
    about 30 years, and I know it was part of a collection, hence they did
    not know if it worked. I used Jessops R200 black & white film. I'm
    trying it with Fuji Supria 200 colour film next.

  2. That's good going, and going back some.

    My first new camera was a Cresta II. I can still remember the smell of it
    when I took it out the box.

    Yeah! I've got a Cresta 3 that I picked up practically mint (original
    case and user manual included) for a coupla quid or something. I
    intended to use it as a poor girl's Holga, but it actually produces far
    better images than the real Holga stuff I've seen, so maybe you really
    do need to shell out £30 or whatever to get that gloopy Holga effect.

    Anyway, the Cresta 3 (and all those old 120 box cameras) are great fun.
    MF photography for pennies! Also, you can punch the lens out and stick a
    bit of perforated beer can in there to get a great pinhole camera. I've
    got an old Agfa Clack, I did that with.

    Ah, you're the one that mentioned the Cresta 3 vs Holga sometime back.

    Mine is also mint, with case and instructions.

    It's fantastic!
