The opportunity to test the camera with colour was also taken. As can be seen, despite fitting new light dams, the camera still leaks light badly. Below is a section of the cloisters at Salisbury Cathedral. This had to be double exposed in order to get a reasonable exposure, two shots of 50th sec. were used.
