DUMBO, Brooklyn.

Recently my dad gave me an incredible Kershaw 450 Velio, which is in superb condition. It has a Otar Anastigmat 80mm f/4.5 lens and 5 speed shutter, pretty impressive spec. However, being a camera from the 50’s I was dubious about it functioning properly. This being said, on a recent visit to NYC I decided to take some pics with it around the DUMBO area. I just got the negatives back, and am pleasantly surprised. I think this camera may become my day-to-day film camera. They sure don’t make ’em like this anymore. I’ll post a pic of the camera as soon as I can.

Kodak Brownie Test.

I took the Kodak Brownie out (bought from Portobello Road market) on my way to work one morning. Unfortunately the shutter is pretty worn so only a couple of shots exposed in a usable form. I guess this is another one for the shelf. I’m kind of glad it isn’t amazing because 120 film spools are slightly too big so you have to file the ends of them down for it to wind the film properly. Pretty time consuming.
