I scanned the negatives from the Coronet Rapier and was pleased with the results, especially as the developer was 20 years old. But there are things I need to improve on, like wearing disposable gloves when loading the film onto the developing spiral, there were finger marks on some of the frames (I’m guessing mine), use hardener in the fixer solution to toughen up the film emulsion, and buy some Tak clothes to get the dust off the glass on the scanner.
Considering it’s a 1 element fixed focus lens and the camera has only 1 shutter speed, I thought it did very well. In it’s day it was sold as a family snapshot camera, place the subject 6 feet away in the centre of the viewfinder with the sun behind the photographer, and you had an acceptable photo for the family album.
