The Balda Baldinette is another folding camera. The little brother of my Ansco Viking Readyset, this camera is much smaller than my Ansco. I bought this camera because I thought that the Ansco I bought last November was never arriving and I really wanted to have a folding camera. Good thing about this camera, it uses 35mm film which is much cheaper and easier to find labs that process it. Although a 60-year old camera, the shutter is still crisp and all buttons work fine. The lens is also free of mold and fungus. The Balda Baldinette was produced by Balda-Werk Bunde, West Germany in 1951.
Lens: Baldanar 50mm f/3.5-16 Shutter Speed: Bulb to 1/200 Macro: 3.5ft to 40ft/Infinity Self-Timer: 10 seconds Film Format: 135
got this yesterday from my friends nana. It’s a Baldinette 35mm folding camera with a prontor-s shutter made around 1950 in Germany.. I gotta figure out how to use this and there is a little tear in the fold out part that i gotta cover up with something.
So I got my first roll of film from my 1950 Baldinette 35mm folding camera developed today. A lot of the film came out really weird and kinda like abstract looking (im not even sure if thats what it would be called). I’m not sure if I should even upload all the photos on here or not…
