Loulou goes analog

I offered my small sister an Oktomat... She's 14 and never heard of anything analog... So that was really fun showing her how to do with this 'prehistoric' equipment, but she loved it, and I hope she will do some more without me :)

    Hi, are these light leaks common on your Oktomat photos? I just got one and I want to make sure mine is working properly (I have a lot of strange light leaks). Thanks!

    Hi @inkybrown Here it is the beginning of the roll so yes it's normal but sometimes I got strange light leaks too. Personnally I like it :) but if you want to avoid this you can add tape all around after loading the film, it will avoid all light leaks.

    Thanks, yes I like it too but I wondered if it was normal. Also, does your Oktomat fire in the order listed on the microsite (top left to right, then bottom right to left)? Because I noticed that mine fires the opposite way... bottom left to right, then top right to left! I wonder if the error is the camera description or the camera itself? Thanks

    @inkybrown same for me, bottom left to right, and then top right to left. Look it's obvious on this shot: www.lomography.com/homes/elvismartinezsmith/albums/1660675-…
