I took my new 'cord out today at lunchtime and shot a roll of
tri-x. This is the first roll of film through the camera (by me
:-) It is a wonderful fall day here and I work on a college
campus so there is always something happening or people nearby.
To answer a question from last week, my Cord is S# 1091xxx, has
a compur-rapid shutter, and a schneider Xenar lens.
Question (and I'll browse the archives but just in case someone
knows of the top of their head): can I remove the "viewfinder"
(folding top assembly and glass screen) so that I can clean the
focusing lens, or is this best something left to a professional?
I see four tiny screws, two on each side of the camera, but
don't need to make things worse by mucking about where I'm not
supposed to be. Needs a CLA, and a maxwell screen, anyway but
I'm just poor at the moment.
It is a quite different way of taking photos than my FE2! It'll
be a little less exciting once I get a working light meter...
