FED2 Revisited For The Second Time In As Many Days

It's like re-encountering a former lover, and then remembering why you used to enjoy their company so much: the nice clunky shutter, the feel in your hand, the pure functionality, the oh-so wrongness of its beautiful lines which you know are stolen... The fact you could get it onto the kitchen table and take the bugger apart, without a qualm.

What that link doesn't say is, how to deal with a faulty flash connexion. That's what this has. But I'll give it a go with tripod, ambient light and slow exposures until I get to grips with Soviet soldering.
