    From Russia with Love, or a $67.00 LF camera

    Hello! I came across an interesting website while searching for Lubitel(!) for a birthday present for a friend of mine who used to have one, but thats a story f ull of foriegn intrigue, sultry Ukranian women and the KGB...but I digress! sov ietcamera.com has for sale $69.95 large format(so they say)Fotokors with a GOMZ f4.5/135mm lens. Intrigueing! Anyone out there ever plays with one of these? Just curious.
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.
