Cleaning the Mercury II Lens by KBeezie Cleaning the Mercury II Lens by KBeezie
:iconmyartismine:

Decided to go ahead and get the lens cleaned up, clearing up the little bit of haze it had, and dabbing up any excess oils from the aperture blade. 

This Universial/Univex Mercury II takes 35mm film, but shoots them at half frames (so about 65 shots off a roll of 36 exposure), made in 1945 and uses a rotary shutter (that big hump on top is part of the shutter assembly). And the fun bit is that it can accurately fire off 1/1,000th of a second, not a common option for a camera in the 1940s. 

Yes, this still works :P why would I bother cleaning the lens if it didn't?
