Lubitel it like it is #12

First roll with my Lubitel 166B, made in Russia, bought second-hand but in unused condition.

The film had expired by two years, which probably explains the slightly overexposed look. Then again, I didn't use a light meter - just the 'Sunny 16' rule - so it may have been down to my inexact guesswork.

There's a slight light leak on some shots, due to a missing knob on the take-up spool, which I have since repaired.

As a first try-out with a Lubi, I got to experience something of the quirks that everyone talks about with this camera - but it was GREAT fun and I can't wait to get back out there with it!
