I finally got around to pulling apart my broken Canon Demi S half frame camera to see if I could get it back up and running. I found a repair manual online for a slightly different model of camera and started dismantling. There was a major difference unfortunatley in how the front cover came off which would have saved a lot of time and trouble but you live and learn.
I got it all back together (with no extra bits left out) with the initial problem fixed but another problem arose which meant I needed to pull it al apart again… Lets just say its a work in progress 🙂
Luckily while I was doing this I was also bidding on another one online 🙂
I havent put up a half frame shot for a while so here is one from the Petone Fair a couple of months back… My half frame camera currently has a rattle like a screw loose inside somewhere so I will have to pull it apart (again) before it goes shooting 😦
I haven’t done one of these for a while…
This one was taken from Fort Buckley on the night before we did the painting with light.
Part 2 of yesterdays post. Back of a parking building.

A couple more shots of the Tripod with its legwarmers. I thought the Pom Poms were a nice touch 🙂
This time in colour from my half frame… Not sure what is up with the crazy yellow shift in the first one. It probably means the film was somewhat expired 🙂
