New camera : an old Semflex

My wife's uncle gave us a very old Semflex.
In this album, here is our first roll. There is a problem of focus, perhaps the pause was too long. I'll do better next time !

    Salut ! C'est marrant ! Je viens juste de m'en acheter un également, mais je ne l'ai pas encore testé, j'ai une pellicule sur mon Diana à finir avant ! Mais j'ai hâte !

    Tu vas voir, @jeriane, il n'est pas simple à utiliser, la fenêtre de mise au point est sombre, et tous les réglages de diaph et vitesse sont manuels ! Heureusement @jahwil m'a envoyé par mail une petite règle coulissante bien pratique !

    Nice album!! Check focus against distant telephone pole for infinity, and if it is off, it can be adjusted, but I don't know how on a Semflex, and for dark old focusing screen, Google "Beatty Intenscreen" and see if one of those are available for it. My father put one of those in our Rolleiflex 3.5f to make it easier to use it for work progress photos, but that was 50 years ago. It's very bright and makes focus much easier.
