Balda Baldessa 1b – a mini-review – By Cameradactyl (Ethan)
I love cameras, big and small. I build a bunch of pretty large ones at cameradactyl.com. But when I go out lugging a 4×5 or 8×10 I also like to take along a tiny camera in my bag. One of my favorites is the Balda Baldsssa 1b. I think it is one of the most underrated cameras ever. I bought it years ago as part of a lot, not knowing what it was, not really interested in it, I probably paid around $5 for it. It surprised me, and I love it, although it is not without its quirks.
