I've been missing my original Ilford Sporti, but hip-hooray, there it was in an old suitcase I had a shufty in yesterday. And, forsooth, a film in it, which turned out to be Adox CHS 25 Art, with three exposures left. So I used them up with the wee National electronic flash to see if it was synching... Devd it tonight: 20mins in ID11 1:1. The whole roll is underexposed, from the negs, (what was I thinking of, putting 25iso film into the Sporti? Hello?) But the last three frames contain no discernible image, so, like the Sporti 4, it's not synching.
Heigh ho. I can live with this. The theory is that these cameras will synch, with a flashgun. Actually, I was looking for flash bulbs when I found the Sporti. And I found 22 PF1Bs. Which was nice. They fit a National flashgun I've also got, which has a capacitor. I've ordered the battery. That's for the Sporti, I also came across a Kodak brand flash gun to use with the KBR, but it hasn't arrived yet, and the bulbs/batteries/capacitor will likely be a whole nother story. With all this palaver, I need some good concepts for the photos. I'm incubating a couple of those.
Meanwhile, in a parallel project, I've been trying a couple of different electronic flashes on the Isolette. That film (Provia 100) is waiting to be devd.
