Apparently, many of my favourite cameras are originally from Dresden, Germany (thanks for pointing that out, @andre30 !), and I've become a bit obsessed with that fact... Here's another batch of test shots from a mid-Thirties Welta Perle – I think I've figured out the best film for this handsome relic.

    ...and unbelievable what you get out with this antique camera. So far I have not have that luck with my pre war vintage cameras.

    @rolfmg Hey, thanks! It often takes a bit of work to make them run smoothly again, but I enjoy fiddling with their simple yet elegant mechanics... Thirties cameras were built to last – and designed to be easily repaired!
