    Got the faulty GS from a dishonest ebay seller and it has a lot of problems, was looking for a faulty one for parts to help repair the thing when I saw this GTN for sale in a £5 camera job lot on gumtree. Turns out its in pretty good condition, I took it apart and cleaned it up a bit and put a test roll through it today. Very pleased with it, the only other time I was this pleased with a roll of film was with and old zorki 4 I have, maybe rangefinders are the way to go. There's something about the focusing system that just works for me in a way the SLR's split prism doesn't.

    Fantastic little cameras. I started with a GSN Electro and have now ended up with the Black GTN. Very simple cameras to use and the lens is pretty good too.

    I'm quite taken by it, the camera is easy to use and the lens really is sharp. Definitely something I'll keep in my camera bag
