It has an M.9 lens, a zoom range from 7.5 to 21 mm and focuses directly from five inches away to infinity. " 'ft CONDOMINIUM VILLAS By IRVING DESFOR AP Newsf eatures COLOGNE. Germany, (AP) The primary function of Photokina, world's biggest photo fair. Is to present the latest developments In photography to camera dealers and the public who represent a cross section of global interest. Here are some of the new products In cameras and equipment which seemed of significance to American camera fans: An Ingenious Super 8mm cassette movie projector. Recognizing the fact that home movie makers are not inclined to edit or splice their films together, the Bolex Mul-timatlc projector makes use of the 50-foot reels returned by film processors. Each 50-foot reel Is put Into a plastic cassette. The projector shows automatically up to six cassettes successively at normal or slow motion speeds and In forward or reverse action. And while one cassette Is being projected, the previous one is being rewound automatically. Cassettes may be added or changed at any time. Thus a film program can be varied Instantly to suit the audience without interrupting the film being shown. A motorized 35mm single lens reflex camera which rewinds exposed film back Into the cartridge. Powered by eight penlight batteries in a detachable handgrip, the Minolta SR-M advances film up to three frames per second but the motorized rewind Is a first. An exposure meter for flashes. With a solid-state circuit requiring no warm-up, the Minolta Flash Meter takes a reading of electronic flash, bulb or daylight flash. It gives a direct reading on an f-num-ber scale with shutter speeds chosen from 1-30, 1-60, 1-125 or 1-2 50th second. It doubles also as a conventional meter. The fastest ultrawlde lens for 35mm SLR cameras.

It should give the visitor a key to the over all decor of your home. First impressions of a house and its occupants are formed in the foyer, revealing the way we live, the style of furnishings we prefer and the special personality of the other rooms visible from the entry hall. Happily for today's home-maker, decorative possibilities for the entry are almost limitless. Houses have telescoped in modem times and entrances have almost disappeared In the crush, but they are still important enough to be created by clever decorating even if they are not architecturally built In. This part of your home is one that is to be used, but only briefly, by everyone coming in through the front door. The visual impact is most important. Although It demands less than any other room in the way of furnishings, It can present problems of perspective and proportion which should be solved If the foyer Is to be the home's keynote. Furnishings need only serve the temporary requirements of guests as they remove coats and hats,- deposit umbrellas or make a last-minute check of their appearance in a mirror. Because It requires little functional furniture, the entry Is an Ideal showcase for beautiful objects. A small table or a chest and a decorative mirror are appropriate. If space permits, an occasional chair or two, a charming bench or perhaps an unusual umbrella stand make suitable and comfortable additions to the entrance way. If the entry hall must do double duty by housing furnishings which are used on occasion in other rooms of the house, then a tea cart could function as a hall table, framed on either side with chairs which could be used in an adjacent dining room. A small dropleaf table could serve as a card table or an added dining spot for buffet entertaining. Since the furnishings in a hallway are subjected to less wear than in other rooms of the house, this Is the Ideal spot for antique chairs which are not meant for long periods of sitting.

A distortion-free ultra-wide lens made Into a camera. The 15mm Zeiss Hologon t-8 lens covers a field of 110 degrees for 35mm format. Because of Its unconventional "wasp waist" design, a camera was built around It with no lens diaphragm but with a spirit level to keep verticals straight. Fixed focus (depth of field from 20 Inches to Infinity) and with fixed 1-8 lens stop, the focal plane shutter assumes the full Job of correct exposure with speeds from 1-500 to 1 second and B. Electronic shutters for drop-in cartridge cameras and a top-speed between-the-lens shutter for the medium-price field. Recent advances in shutter designs enable simple cameras to have electronic exposure precision of up to l-lOOOth of a second speed. Examples: The Vltessa 126S Electronic for the easy-load 126 cartridge.

"I don't sing a song," she says, "I sell it. That is my aim. "If I can't take advantage of four bars or eight bars and show off my voice, then I'm not Interested In that song. And if a song doesn't go up and down enough, it isn't Interesting. I have a big range and I don't want to sing with Just part of it. "There are lots of songs I turn down, because they don't suit my voice and my styling." The two most effective songs In her nightclub act, we thought, are "Johnny One Note" and "Big Spender," both done In the style of "Goldflnger" with grit, volume and verve. She also sings "Goldflnger," a show stopper; both sides of her new single release, "This Is My Life" and "Funny Girl," and her favorite, "I Who Have Nothing." That's her favorite, Miss Bassey says, "because I was seven months pregnant when I recorded It and instead of looking like I had nothing, I looked like I was expecting a baby elephant. And the sound was great. I was singing very well and I had the right technicians and a good arrangement. I got a silver disc for it in England." Her only gold record, U.S. Is for the album "Goldflnger."

The singer was born In Cardiff, Wales, the youngest of seven children. Her father, from Nigeria, was In the merchant navy. Her mother was from England. "I . don't think of myslef as one thing or the other Negro or white. I was born In a Negro area and raised In a white area after we moved when I was 3.
