Agfa Ambi Silette

I bought this a few weeks ago, and have just developed the first film I shot with it. The camera needs a service - the shutter only works with the flash timing on "M". It will be going to Chris Sherlock this afternoon.

Some pictures from the film (Kentmere 100, developed in Rodinal 1:50)

Chris did a very good job for me on a similar type of camera.

The Agfa Ambi Silette is an interesting camera and you should certainly enjoy working with it.

I just dropped it off to him - he lives a short drive away from me.

It was a bit more than a short drive for me but the next time I get down that way I may give him a call.

@john: where did you buy it?

I had a '57 that went that way (only firing on 'M' and even then only after 4 or 5 goes) towards the end of the first film I put through it.
