Bronica S2a

While cleaning one of our (family) company's long term storages, we found this. The lens didn't focus all the way to infinity, so I took the focusing helix apart, and found out that someone in the past must have tried to fix something and put it back together the wrong way, so it appears it's now in full working condition, I'm shooting a roll of film with it to test how light proof and how accurate it is.

 

Another interesting fact about this camera, is that the mirror doesn't fold up, it's pulled forward and down, making a very peculiar (and loud) sound.
