I couldn't pass up this ten-dollar bakelite beauty during a Sunday visit to the flea market. I first made some traditional b&w images on Acros. Then, I used the digital to shoot a few through the brilliant viewfinder of the Super Seventy-five.

Congratulations on your find. I just found a super seventy five for $3 at a thrift shop, which unfortunately turned out to have a bad lens (lens coating cracked beyond use). I have begun converting it to a pinhole Argus.

It's possible that the coating might be polished or removed. Maybe not worth the effort, though, considering how little one pays for these cameras. The pinhole sounds like a worthwhile idea. I'd be interested in seeing what you get from it.
