So about 11 days ago I received my Zenit 11 and, with trembling hands, after about 12 years since I last used an analogue camera, I put the first black and white film in it. Taking photos without seeing on a screen, no matter how small, what you're actually going to have as result is beyond frustrating, I admit. It got even more frustrating when I had what I understood to be the "christening" of every Zenit user, namely when I ripped the film while trying to take it out. That's what happens when the camera comes without a manual. I was smart enough (rare occasion!) not to open the camera in light. I thought I'd give the film a try nevertheless and took it to be developed.
Do I have to say how happy I am that they could salvage this one shot? I guess not!
