12 Shots: Wirgin Reflex TLR on Flickr.
I decided to load up the Wirgin on Friday for some weekend shooting.
It’s hard to find info for this camera. It seems Wirgin didn’t make TLRs, but rebadged cameras from other makers. I think mine is actually an EHO Altissa Altiflex. Speeds range T/B-1/300 and aperture f/4.5-22. It shoots 6x6 on 120 film. I wasn’t sure about shutter speed accuracy so I stuck to 1/100 (which sounded about right) using Kodak Portra 100T.
A friend picked up the camera at a giant Atlanta estate sale that included thousands of vintage cameras. There’s clearly a light leak. The back was loose so I used rubber bands to help hold it on. but that didn’t work well. It was a fun camera to use and it increased my desire to shoot more TLR, but I think I’ll stick this one back on the collection shelf and hunt for something better.
