This Bessa 66 came with a job lot from the auction site I bid because I could see from the picture that it had a 5 element Heliar lens – although the lens nameplate seemed to have three non-original screws which was a little concerning. It turned out that a previous owner had reasonably neatly drilled for and fitted these screws to secure the nameplate ring to the lens. I've seen quite a few of these 6x6 Bessas with the nameplate ring missing, so there's no way of knowing what lens is fitted. I think they had a hinged yellow filter which also carried the lens details, and this has a habit of getting detached. Some dirt in the lens was fortunately confined to the section behind the rear element, which was easy to unscrew for cleaning. The camera came in nice condition and in full working order apart from the "B" setting. It has a rather confusing film advance mechanism, with sliding levers on the front and back. It took me a few sessions with a scrap film to get my head round this. You wind on until number 1 appears in the red window, then close the window and reset the counter with the rear lever. The front lever releases the double exposure prevention and advances the counter to the next number after winding on. To be honest, I'm still not sure exacly what the procedure should be, there's no definitive instructions on line, but I did get 12 evenly spaced pictures out of it. These pictures were done on Ilford HP5 Plus 400 ISO film. I should add that this 66 may be either pre- or post-war and has an unsynchronised Compur Rapid shutter. The finder being tucked into the corner, gave me some grief, being a left eyed photographer. I soon realised it worked better for me with the camera held vertically. That's it, and thanks for looking.
