I graduated from an Instamatic to my dad's very similar Nova, also with the Meyer Domiplan 50mm ƒ/2.8 around 1974 or 75. At the time he had a Gossen lightmeter with it. I even remember the old flash gun, I think the one dad had may of been the same model. As well as letting me use the camera he acquired an old Johnsons Wray Gnome enlarger from a friend of his and I had to learn to D&P myself too. I have some great memories doing different but interesting stuff with my dad, and from what my kids say I seem to have managed to carry that philosophy on with them.
Thanks for stirring the memory.
