I managed to miss out on a Halina A1 Reflex camera last night due to a terrible eBay iPhone app. Apparently, if you want any freakin’ alerts about junk you’re bidding on you have to actively watch them whether you’re bidding on them or not. I just so happened to check the app with 12 seconds to go, panicked, and dropped the ball.
I’m now looking at a Halina Viceroy which was made in the 1960s and is slightly similar in function, less glamorous looking, but the shutter speed and aperture settings as wee knobs at each side of the shooting lens instead of on it and it also takes 120 film.
Fingers are crossed.
