Lomography’s very own analog scientist with another test run!
Listen to me – this all-metal, all-mechanical Rangefinder demands one strict rule: Cock the shutter before turning the shutter speed dial! Repeat. . You wouldn’t want to mess around with this one – there is a possibility to damage the camera if this rule isn’t followed. It can give you super sharp pictures if you’re nice enough. Interestingly, the Industar 61 lens is Lanthanum-coated – making it slightly radioactive?! After some thorough investigation, we can all relax – this Russian beast is completely safe to use. Phew …

By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
