I purchased two Russian range finders on eBay for $5.00 each about a year before I took this roll of film. It took me that long to get up the nerve to use them. They were very intimidating at first. With the Smena 2, I had no concept on how to use the camera and how many turns of the dial it would need to advance the film the proper amount in order to take the next photo. Because of that, a lot of the photos overlapped and created some interesting looks.
