Some pics form my Konica S; there weren't really any decent ones from the Super A. I was using either a Pentax 28mm f2.8 or Hoya (same), neither are really good. Will have to find a better wide angle lens for it.

Looks like you did a good job on the rebuild. Pretty decent colour, What film did you use? Speaking of which, half frame and a project all in one 382596832319

It's only the second roll I've put through it but it's a great camera. Contrast is rather high but I went for process and scan not print, first time I've done that, and you could PP it anyway. It's Poundland film. One thing I find is I'm not used to the moving frame lines (parallax correction) so I tend to ignore them and sometimes the framing is wonky. I checked it out and the frame lines are accurate, I'm more used to SLR or the Zeiss RFs - with the latter the VF is in the centre anyway, and all you have for close-up pics are a pair of marks so you crop a bit off the top of the VF, which works very well (typical!). Definitely my favourite camera at the moment.

Not sure I'm ready for a project or a half frame! Can't remember what's wrong with your Certo, is it the missing focus scale stop? Could you use parts form this? 292781241142

I know you like scale focus Kenzie, dunno if you have one of these, they are tiny, even smaller than the Contessa 35: 202473928608
