Excellent results!
I have to agree. Thanks man. I just posted a couple more from the same Ektar100 roll from the Kiev4m | Helios combo....
I quite like that tiny little 50mm... quite a lot.

Had two of the Soviet RFs with me on a little outing a week or two ago. They've been fun.

Fed 2E | Industar-61 | Superia200


Kiev 4M | Helios-103 | Ektar100
I love these, especially the layers and composition in the second one. Great photographs, second post too. Fed and 61..! Great work.

The Instax film is currently around $9 for a pack of 10 sheets. All things considered that's not bad.
I found an unused kit on ebay that included a 210 camera and 12 film packs all for $120

Thanks man. Wow - you're the deal-diviner. The film alone is worth that. Good find. Have fun!

Not at all soft, that 40mm is a hell of a lens. Worth every penny. The ETRS PE series lenses are all quite good, SQ PS lenses seem to be, too.

Sharpness is overrated, but in my experience none of my Zenzanon lenses are lacking.

Let's let that truth stand out, here.

That said, there's "softness" and there's "crappy rendering", and they are hard to quantify.

True story. Speaking of soft though, did you get some soft-serve to celebrate this sharp-shot?
(That's a cool looking older DQ)

Some nice shots there. So... they're brining selfie-sticks to weddings now too, eh? (sigh)

Does a Holga qualify for "crappy rendering"

I think time has shown that the average Holga has a lot of charm.

I think that usually too much attention is paid to lens characteristics, but it's still fun to discuss.
