Leica lll F with a collapsible Leitz f 5 cm 1:3.5 lens.
Film Kodak Plus X Pan at F5.6 - 1/100 second. My film was
cut from bulk rolls and loaded in a re-loadable leica cassette.
It was a convenient low cost way of carrying film but not
ideal. The film had to be loaded in the dark and static
electricity always attracted dust which shows on the negative.
Developed by hand in La Paz using May and Baker Promicrol
at normal dilution.
