127 camera No.10 - Baldi 3x4

This is another of the 1930s little black folding 127 cameras that I have a soft spot for. The 3x4 cm size is the 127 "half-frame" format, with 16 exposures per roll. I'm using Efke 100 black and white film this week.
Despite being nearly 80 years old, the shutter still fires on all speeds, but it does need a bit of warming up on the slow speeds, I find that covering the lens and firing the shutter a few times helps ensure that it will be reasonably accurate.
