    @ tomk32, oz1gyq

    those cameras can unfortunately not be considered for the dead stock tales but you can submit a camera review!

    @ johann_affendy

    yes, you can submit a tale for the zenit 122!

    Just been given a grimy old Fed 3 so haven't used it yet, but I've had my Symbol for almost 30 years so can probably write something about that.
