Am wondering that, about grabbing it. The shutter detaches so the body can be used with bellows - you can see the chromed clip sticking up from the camera. Mine does the same. The focusing helicoid comes away with it as a complete unit, which is both a blessing and a curse! I've asked a few more questions.

Are the bellows light tight?

Yeah I know. Hopefully getting up to the Peaks for a walk tomorrow, I have a few pics in my Ensign still and a few in the Contessa, should take the Ensign I guess as more chance of landscape pics than anything else. Meant to check the focus of the Kiev tonight but CBA.

Its grotty down here today so I doubt we will be going anywhere. We don't have anything as nice as the Peak District around the corner, its too flat! All I get is countryside, waterways and the seaside!

Skipped the mess Ikonta, but bought the Certo, it's on its way. A couple more pics the seller sent looked much better than the ones in the listing, and he had more info. Not sure about the shutter blades jamming on top speed, and fingers crossed for the rest. Check the Kiev focus and RF, putting a film in it tonight. Aside from cleaning the film chamber, it's fully working (so far!), not many I get are in that state!

Working you mean? You tend to end up with the basket cases. I finished off the roll in the Rollei and ran another through the Envoy. Just scanning them at the moment.
