The Recesky isn’t complex but assembly can be interesting. The simple shutter mechanism cost me the most time. The shutter is comprised of two springs and three plastic parts. I wrestled with the tiny springs and flimsy parts until the shutter cycled reliably. The Recesky shutter should last a while but some spare parts would help me sleep better at night. After conquering the shutter the rest of the camera came together without incident. The single element lenses assemble in just a few moments. The sides of the camera mounted to the face but I had to leave them loose until the film roll components and mirror assembly was installed. Once all of the internals were mounted I snugged up the screws that held the Recesky together.
And then finish!!!!!
I loaded it with Kodak Ektar 100 and these are the results >>>>
