Roll 103. East German snakeskin camera.
Somewhere, sometime, someone had the thought ‘This camera would be so much more awesome if it only was covered in snake skin!’. And that someone didn’t let the thought stay a mere idea, but made it reality.
I picked up the camera for cheap off Ebay. It was significantly cheaper than cameras not subjected to the snake skin treatment, but it seems to work just fine. A small sticker inside states that it was serviced in April this year.
The test roll came out fine. No problem at all with the frame spacing, which apparently is an issue with these cameras. The ground glass in the view finder is a bit dim, an inconvenience, but not something that prevented me from enjoying shooting with this huge camera. It takes 120 film and produces solid 6×6 negatives.
