Another test roll - same film, same developing tank but completely different rendering. This new camera has issues - you can see the shutter here on the left but posting as a reference. I enjoyed the 35mm focal length a lot for this style of documentary photography with multiple people in the frame.

I much prefer the rendering of this 35mm Biogon to the Sonnar shared in the last 2 photos.. miuch smoother.

Kiev 4M + Zeiss Biogon 35mm f2.8 (Contax Mount) + Fomapan 100

Developing - Xtol 1:4, 21 degrees, 24mins, 2Iv, Epson v800 scan

Another test roll - HOw not to hold a Kiev/ Contax - see my left hand partly blocking the rangefinder window! :)

First test photo with the Kiev 4M..it was working at this point! And the shutter works at slower shutter speeds it seems. Rangefinder works! :)

I know some of you don't like me posting YouTube thumbnail images but some images show nice cameras as here so I thought i'd share.
