    I bought some 620 film from J&C Photo recently, and finally got a chance to test my Duaflex III. I was pretty sure that lens looked clean and the shutter sounded good - but you never know till you try it. I bought Tri-X 400.

    I took the camera along to my last arts festival. Here are some shots of my booth (nothing special!):

    Looking out over the children's play area from the back of my booth:

    Passed this old Dodge on the way back to the parking area and thought I'd try a close angle:

    I was pleasantly surprised at the lens quality - figured I'd have some fall-off in the edges in every frame. It's evident in some more than others, but not "Holga-like" as I expected. The frames are perfectly aligned on the film strip, so the film advance is spot on, too.

    Fun camera! I'll try the 100 ISO next. :sexywink: Thanks for looking.

    Good stuff, Terri... I've just got my (beloved!) Argoflex E back not long ago, and I need to get out and shoot it. Thanks for the kick in the seat to get with it!

    :biglaugh: I'm afraid the camera fared slightly better than the old girl by the end of the festival...those things are a lot of work!

    Thanks, Jeff. :) It was a great-looking old car, and I needed more stuff to shoot! :lol:
