I inherited one of these from my grandmother recently. Bought new in Romania in the 1930s or 1940s, can't remember.
Anyway, I've been shooting all kinds of films with it, and have gotten surprisingly decent results (this is Ektar 100 shot at 2am):
(forgot to wind it a few times)
However I've had much trouble focusing the camera, as focus must be done by estimating the distance of the desired focus point.
I'd like to start taking portraits with this thing, before breaking down and buying a Mamiya to shoot my 6x6s. I'm looking for tips and tricks on how to focus this camera.
So far I've tried using a smart phone app to gauge distance but it's extremely inaccurate I've found. There are more expensive apps available but I'd like to see here first. Simply locking it to F11 and shooting away has resulted in some very shakey exposures, handheld in the daytime. I'd prefer to not require a tripod for daytime shooting.
