Taken with the Great Wall DF-

I shot one roll in the Horizon 202 camera, but have a bad feeling I didn't wind the film on tight enough. This camera has the most unusual film loading regimen I have ever seen. Lots of under, over, under, arounds.

The craziest thing though has got to be the lens swing mechanism. First you cock the shutter, and then when you hit release the lens swings at varying speeds depending on the shutter speed you have set. It's good fun. Unfortunately having read warnings on several websites about destroying the mechanism with one misplaced grain of sand, I have become precious about the camera. Don't keep the shutter cocked for too long, don't get it cold, don't get it hot, don't get it wet, etc, etc.
