perkeo 1, vintage camera - all round view at 10° intervals.
The perky little Perkeo, apologies, I just couldn't stop myself. But it's a fair bit more compact than many of its contemporaries for the same 6cm format. Some of this is illusion, the front hatch is heavily dished to accomodate the lens and shutter, allowing the body to be just deep enough to take the film spools. The use of pressed steel sheet construction throughout is both efficient in terms of manufacture and space and the result is, as I say - perky. Other than that it's an un-pretentious honest little thing, that doesn't even stretch to the egoism of having any serial numbers.

Stuck at home and looking for a long read?
|Of Our Own Device is a spy tale interwoven amongst true events culminating with the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989. Meticlously researched and utterly true to life, the book is very particular with its cadence. It is both spy and romance, but mostly a study of deceit, internationally, between friends, lovers and ourselves.|
