Roll 78. Edixa Reflex

I felt a gap in my collection, a 35mm SLR with waist level finder. An Edixa Reflex was bought off Ebay.

The top plate is a bit corroded, and the times shorter than 1/25 hangs the mechanism, but beyond that it works well, and it came with a very worn 50mm m42 lens.

The waist level finder on the camera was too small for me to actually use at waist level, but it was a fun experience never the less.

The camera doesn’t have a lightmeter so I guessed the exposures during the one hour walk where I shot a test roll. Most of the pictures came out pretty OK.

Well, except for the part of the film that got ruined when I opened the camera back by mistake before the film was completely rewound.

    • It is very nice. A bit heavy, but that lends stability. A WLF on a 35mm camera is very small, so it is not as convenient as it is on a medium format camera, but very fun to shoot with.

      The body has a mechanism for automatic actuation of the aperture, but the lens that came with the camera doesn’t support it. Having to blend down manually after framing each shot takes some time, and when hand holding it is easy that the framing goes off a bit.
