MPP Microcord Testfilm Fuji Reala 100 (03)

MPP Microcord Testfilm Fuji Reala 100 (03)
The rusty headlight of a bicycle acts as a perfect subject to test the camera at nearest close-up range which is about 3 Feet.
.
.
Shutterspeed 1/300, Diaphragma 1:3,5 which is wide open.

Image a bit underexposed because there was not enough light available for 1/300 but in this case i preferred that speed to minimise the effect of camera shake (again "forgot" the tripod). This image is also a cropped, top part is left out because too much sky visible.


Camera :
MPP Microcord early model. Sometimes called Mk1 but not sold as such.
This English MF format (6x6) TLR was produced somewhere between 1951 and 1954.
The taking lens is a Ross,London Xpress 77,5mm 1:3,5
Shutter is an Epsilon leaf shutter made by Barnet Ensign Ross.

From the Second testfilm and with special thanks to Richard from Lockington (GB) who made it possible to shoot a decent testfilm at all !

Thanks Michael.
I did some tweaking in Photoshop Elements to get it better. But the histogram of the original scan showed it underexposed.
