Earlier in March this year me and Wife went to Inari in Lapland, where a friend of Wife is learning the crafts of the indigenous peoples. I took my newly acquired and dubiously reliable Pentacon Six TL with Biometar 80mm, my seemingly back-from-the-dead Kodak Retina, and a Zorki 4 that I hadn’t even put a test roll through.
Quite why I decided to take a load of questionably functioning cameras to one of the most picturesque places in the world I do not know. Thankfully the Zorki worked like a dream and I’m a little in love with it now, my re-lube of the Jupiter 8 made it a babe to use. My P6 already had problems with a dragging shutter on the higher speeds, and I was expecting the cold weather to make this worse, but surprisingly my shots were almost entirely fine, with just a bit of shadow on the left hand side that you’ll probably notice below. The frame counter died on me, so I only get 10 shots per roll now. Oh well.
The Kodak Retina ballsed itself over after 8 photos so it can fuck off back on the shelf.
Anyway, here are some of my Pentacon Six shots taken over the 5 days we were there.
