More BESSA 66 Colour Tests

Went out at 0845 hrs this morning taking the 1930 VOIGTLANDER BESSA 66 with 75mm f3.5 un-coated 'Voigtar' lens loaded with a roll of Kodak VPS 160 found in fridge left over from when I did 'Weddings' so it was really OLD! I rated it at only 40 ASA thinking a good opportunity to use 'wide apertures' on the Voigtar lens . Results were mixed with 'definition'-- one which is not shown taken set to 75 feet of houses is very un-sharp at f4 - not useable. This time on 12 frames NONE had the 'Light Leaks' seen on first Colour Tests -- I took some WITH lens hood and some WITHOUT holding camera so base-board was at top actin g as a 'Lens Hood' Medium Focus , 1/100th @f8
