hello. just got one of these, thinking foolishly that it might be a backup to my rolleiflex. ...the rolleicord is not a rolleiflex. ok... so the issues began from jump street... wasted 4 rolls of film trying to figure out how to get the thing to work properly. finally figured it out, although when using the counter it only goes to 8. then i have to push and hold the button in to advance manually to the next frame. and the pictures are soft. sort of. not like the rolleiflex. mad disappointment. then i noticed something a bit odd about the scanned images. it seems as though the raison detre of this camera and its non-zeiss like zeiss lens is the tonal range. I seem to be able to push the blacks waaaaaaaaaaay deeper than images made with other 6x6 cameras i've used, all the while retaining delicate highlight fading to pure white.. so..... am i deluding myself in order to deal with the fact that i bought a camera with a crappy lens... or.... is there something really different about the tonal range?
