First roll through my Petri 7S camera

First roll through my Petri 7S camera

I got myself this cult camera from the mid 60's for free not very long ago. It is in mint condition (on the outside it is), and has a lovely leather case. The Petri 7S is quite an advanced range finder camera: it has a 45 mm 2.8 lens, ISO settings from 10 to 400, shutter speeds from 500/second to 1 second and b, and a very nice light meter which works with an ATL selenium cell. I decided to give this beauty a try with slide film, I used Agfa CT Precisa film. The results came out often a bit blurry, yet very dreamy. I'm not sure if the dreamy effect is the result of a dirty lens (it could be) or something else, but I'll figure out during a next roll. :) More information and pictures of the Petri 7S over here: http://photoethnography.com/ClassicCameras/Petri7s.html
