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 …
