I recently bought a 1956 Kiev II rangefinder. These are the Soviet version of the Contax cameras. After WWII, the USSR took over many German factories, one of them being the Zeiss factory that made the Contax cameras.

Anyway, I just scanned in my first roll shot through this camera. Shot on Foma 100 b&w film and developed on Pyrocat MC for 9 minutes. I don't know if it's the film or the camera, but these turned out a little soft compared to what I am used to for 35mm, though I've never shot Foma 100 in 35mm before so it just might be the film.

That would take a perfect Bigfoot photo.
