Finetta-Werk (Saraber) Finetta 88, 35mm Camera. Photograph gallery.

The principle delight in using the Finetta is derived from it's appearance, it is quite unlike anything else. The camera sits quite nicely in the hands and the controls are light and smooth. Setting the aperture is a bit of a fiddle however. Performance is tolerable, the optics aren't the crispest but they're far from the worst either. If it has a problem at all it's the surprisingly picky shutter, though a simple device its tolerance to wear is low and this one has proved to be decidedly recalcitrant - regularly refusing to release. However, I can forgive it because I like the way it looks!

Just across from Hamble is the Warsash river Ferry shelter, painted in this wonderfully outrageous pink, the ferry company paints the vessels in a similarly noticeable hue.
