Roll 152. The broken Chinon Bellami

I bought a Chinon Bellami. On paper it is a fantastic camera, and it was a great joy to shoot. Unfortunately the film advance was broken on mine so it overlapped frames heavily.

Going down. Lucky SHD100 pushed to 400 in Rodinal 1+25 for 20 min,

I did some research online and there were many complaints about broken Bellamis. Apparently they were of very poor quality. It is a shame, it was a nice camera and very compact. But I don’t think I’ll buy another unless I find a real bargain.
