Stacking filters

It will have some effect but may not be consistent. It all depends which way you are pointing the camera in relation to the sun. I am not a great lover of Polarising filters but I believe the most...

That link

There are two words that I would use - Cheap and tacky! Cheap in as much they items were junk and tacky because that is what they were. Even if they were priced in US Dollars!

Floating dishes

Floating them empty on water would probably be OK. but put enough developer in them to work properly, I would say you would need to call out the lifeboat. A weird contraption no mistake.

Absolutely shocking!

I had a brief ownership of one in the middle 1960's. It was the basic model, no rangefinder, meter or anything else. There was even one that had interchangeable lenses.
