Sounds interesting.

It's a 2.5 hour drive so maybe someone can tell me, if it's worth it?
Any impressions from the las years?

Last year the weather put a damper on things. There was a weather warning for the afternoon and the heavy shower in the morning causing a lot of vendor's to quit early.
Some of the Dutch RFF members met up for a drink around noon.

The market consist of over a 150 stands worth of gear from across the history of photography running through the town center of Doesburg.

A couple of impression photos on the official site: http://www.fotograficamuseumdoesburg.nl/23.html

Last year we met with 6 or 8 Dutch members, a brief meeting since the weather warning was issued and we wanted to see the rest of the market before it was all boxed up.

Doesburg is a lovely little town with a historic city center, where the fair is.

There were a lot of nice stands, lots of quality gear and especially for accessories etc I found some nice deals there, collectible accessory stuff for petty cash.

Also a nice fair to pick up some film and have a drink with fellow members. This thread likely will be surfacing time and again until that weekend, so it's easy to hook up and meet!

It's very unfortunate, but I'll be in Ireland at the time

Looking forward to strolling Doesburg again, this year I might try to find a place to crash the night before, so we can spend more time on the fair than we did last year.

Maybe illegally camp outside town, somewhere in the countryside

Nice and strong coffee usually does a tidy job of getting me alert(ish) at silly hours, Johan

Whuhahaha, saw this only just now! I'll brew up an extra large pot this time, Derk!

Got any wishes left for Doesburg, now that Santa has laid all that gear on you last Friday?

Oh certainly. Still after a J-12 or something that does a similar job, still out for some accessory VF's or decent hack material () and I'm thinking of finally (cough) getting the necessary chemicals to get going at home developing. I've run out of excuses, so I must set to it...

But all the received items have found their places and all is working well. Only thing left to do is to shoot more

Derk

Thanks for the PM about this Johan. I recently bought a camera from Secondhandcamera in Amsterdam and spoke with Peter about this and other shows in Holland but then forgot about it so I'm very grateful for the reminder.

I will definitely try to come. My wife's out of town so I'm free to play It seems like a really interesting show!

Cheers
Philip

Actually I am rather certain now that I'll be able to make it. The little hitch is that I can only drive there in the morning so I hope the fair won't have rained away by the time I get there. Gosh what's with the weather these days?

Will there be an RFF meet-up perhaps?

cheerio

Bumpin' the thread and the Fair here.


Well, how 'bout it?

Philipus wants to meet, I'm all up for a meet like last years' since it was a 30min-meet then, with the weather and all... And Derk and I were planning to arrive earlier this year anyway.

Who's coming to play?

Hi Hans,

Just joined that forum but I don't think Derk and I will be up for a meeting that early, we will be arriving an hour prior to that...

But who knows!

Hi everyone!
Sorry for the radio silence. I've had some mobile broadband problems here in Sweden. I will arrive in Doesburg at noon after having dropped off my wife at Schiphol.
cheers
Philip

Cool, Philip! I'll send you my cell number so we can text to meet.

More pre-fun: what will people be looking for?

Here's my list:
Film clamps
Paterson 5-film tank
Fuji Astia
Rolleiflex 2.8F case
Billingham TLR bag
43mm UV filters
C-41 or E-6 kit
Mamiya 55 or 65mm lens
TLR (beater) to craft the Mamiya lens onto

Of all this, only the 43mm filter and the Astia are necessities though.

Anybody else got something they'll be looking for?

umm... I am thinkng to go there, together with a colleague, but we both have work shift from 3pm- in eindhoven - so it will be an early drive and short visit for us.
Though i am also wondering... is it really worth counting on buying anything? or just eye candy and trying stuff? I have the feeling everything will be way overpriced (or fairly priced, depends how you put it - in any case, no "great deals" and usually over my budget)

I would not mind picking up e.g. a nice looking (not necessarily operational) wooden camera, or one that could be restored (by me) with not too much skill.
Or a mamiya c system- or at least try one out coz i never touched one- if it's affordable
Or a hassy, but those seem to be still over the top priced.
Or an old beautiful rolleiflex old standard that is not totally trashed
And simple things like a rolleifix, a lenscap for Bay2, a 6x6-6x7 enlarger lens...

it's exaggerating to say i am LOOKING for these, except the simple things, but if i bump into i might get tempted.
