TLR (twin lens reflex) 35mm film plastic build-it-yourself recesky

my first 2 rolls on a tlr.

i used a plastic recesky tlr (put it together from out of the box in one day… about 3 hours).

loading the film was pretty easy… the only immediate issue with this camera is that the film doesn’t catch the film counter wheel (cog).  this leaves me guessing at where to stop when advancing to the next frame.  i find that rotating the advance knob slightly over 360 degrees (like an hour and 10 minutes if it were a clock face) is a pretty good guide.

this was shot on 400 iso … except for the 2nd shot with the yellow hue… not sure what film i used there, but the whole role had this yellow hue.
