Here’s another camera we thrifted in September: a Bentley WX-3 with a Bentley W-14 flash. It’s a 35mm camera with a 50 mm fixed focus lens. It feels pretty heavy in hand but it’s just a trick: it is a simple plastic camera, one of those we call “Toy cameras” today. I’d recommend using film with higher ISO for it, 400 would be great. It doesn’t work well in poor light conditions. There is also something sharp inside it that scratches the film down the middle in most of the shots in the first part of the roll. I’m not sure if it’s only my camera or most of them but I saw some similar topics online. It works for double exposures, though. Most of mine happened accidentally but they always look cool. Overall I’m not too impressed with this camera but I might give it a second chance and try shooting on a really bright and sunny day next time.
