    Finally got round to using mine today - used a roll of Velvia in 6x9 format as a real test of what it can do. Quite enjoyed it - the camera fits into my fleece jacket pocket, yet gives such a comparatively huge image size.
    Let you know about the results...
    The downside was when I reloaded it with a Kodak print film - the frame numbers were so small I wound straight past 1. Changing bag to the rescue!

    Looking forward to seeing those pictures.

    Hey, everyone has an oops with loading these old cameras on occasion. Been there, done that.

    I owned one of thse about 5 years ago and found the lens , the f 3.8 Ross Xpres an absolute gem. To get a 16" x 12" from a 6 x 9 neg was no effort and made the 35mm neg approach seem hard work. They do seem a litle odd after a SLR but very rewarding to use. Mine had a small focusing error due to wear on the folding struts but this was only significant at full aperture.

    Good luck with the shooting
