Baldessa Rangefinder - Test Drive

Our friend Michelle kindly bequeathed this late 1950's Balda - Baldessa 1b 35mm rangefinder to us a few months ago.

Finally found some laundry room/darkroom time. The rangefinder roll was in the mix.

This particular rangefinder was fun to use. However; above and beyond the film scratching which could be expected when using an old camera, something odd happened when advancing the film. After about a dozen frames, the film started to bunch up, crease and fold over itself or something like that. Could be operator error... not quite sure. However... this rangefinder still captured this frame.

For that, I say thank you!
