Let's do it!

Some days ago someone talked about the idea of ordering an X100 as a RFF members' gift to Keith. I think that would be really cool! The camera would see good use in his gallery shooting for sure.

Why don't we do it? $10 per member and it will be a really, really nice story...

Who's in?

C'mon, I know we're more than only 120 kind people around here!

Cheers,

Juan

Does anybody know Keith's Paypal address?

He can tell us when the price is reached.

Cheers,

Juan

Hey, I'm good with the idea. Would be really interesting to see what he can do with the camera.

A friend of many of us here on RFF, hunz. His name on RFF is "Keith", in case you want to check who he is from his posts.

He's getting an X100 as a gift from his friends.

If you don't know him, maybe you have little to do here...

Nice to meet you!

Cheers,

Juan

Hi Akiva,

You're much appreciated here too, by many members: I guess you're asking just because you know that... Don't tempt us!

I like the hat on his avatar a lot too! Keith is to me one of the most sensitive and intelligent photographers posting here. I like his posts and his humor deeply. He deserves that X100!

Cheers,

Juan

I'm in, lots of good fun talking with the guy from OZ.
Maybe he should auction off his hat if we don't make the full amount needed.

I've just got home from the shops to discover a PM from Juan and a link to this thread and I really don't know quite what to say ... except that the quality of the people at this site never fails to absolutely stun me. Maybe it's the rangefinder thing that attracts souls who are a little different to the rest because a lot of the amazing generosity and kindness I see here is missing in other forums I've visited.

Of course I want an X100 ... who doesn't but financially I have no hope at the moment and have actually sold gear over the last few months to keep a roof over my head and food on the table. Several cameras, some lenses and my beloved Vespa have gone by the way to achieve this. I had a reasonably lucrative one day a week job that along with the occasional paid gig photographing gallery openings was keeping me afloat but unfortunately the part time job evaporated last year and the money I get from the infrequent photography work is way short of what a person can live on. You have to do what you have to do to survive in this world and I'm optomistic enough to think that if I tighten my belt and ride the situation out things will improve. There are people around a lot worse off than myself ... you only have to open your eyes and look around to realise this.

I can only accept such generosity on this condition ... and that is that this camera cannot be sold by me. If circumstances arise that prevent me from using the camera or I just plain don't want it ... it would have to go to another forum member in need who may also be struggling with money and life generally. I'm very serious about this committment and only see it as being fair.

Juan ... you're an amazing guy to think of doing such a thing for another person on the other side of the world and even if it doesn't come to fruition financially I'll have been deeply affected by it's inception and the basic goodness of my fellow human beings. Particularly the ones who inhabit this incredible forum.

Keith.

however, the hat stays!

It's nothing, Keith: we really appreciate you... Soon you'll be working again in something you like, and back home from work your company will be an X100.

Cheers,

Juan

Done. For the price of a fancy drink, please someone with a fancy camera. That is priceless.
If my big ticket item sells on ebay I'll get you all an X100.

I tried personal gift too and it went through without fee
It's probably an FX conversion fee for you.

----------

Although I may just be a lurker/'newbie' here on RFF, when Juan mentioned the name 'Keith'... I immediately knew who he was referring to!
--
I would be lying... if I said that I didn't enjoy reading Keith's many informative and witty postings over the last few months.
--
Great idea Juan! My hat (and perhaps Keith's also)... is off to you for starting this thread. Very, very 'classy' indeed!
--
Keith... I know that many of us here at RFF have been in a similar situation to you... at one time or another. "Keep your chin up!"... your situation will turn around sooner than you think.
--
I am *** Definitely *** in.

-Tim.
