Thanks , i only purchased mint items and they're hardly used; they mainly sit in my classic collection cabinet ... a shame really for such nice looking gear for i do mainly digital these days ...once in a while i give them a workout and shoot a roll here and there and scan the film onto TIFF and play in PS ...I wish the new digital cams were that beautiful ...cheers

I'll post this here too. My latest (and probably last for a while) acquisition.

OBTW, those 7s and Ps are very attractive cameras.

I wish my canonet were black, and maybe I'd do something stupid like this.

Nice shots Karl! I've always liked the Demi's even thought I haven't had the chance to handle one yet... Your 50/1.8 looks absolutely immaculate!

I hadn't yet noticed any VI-Ts in this thread (apologies if I simply overlooked yours!) so here's mine in two of its guises:



The gizmo attached to the front of the 50/1.2 lens is a parallax-compensated "Auto-Up" close-up attachment; if you're not familiar with these, you can read a little writeup I did on them by clicking here.



All you can see of it in the second picture is the end of its wrist strap, but my VI-T is equipped with the original Canon baseplate grip, which makes using the trigger winder much handier. Since there's no frameline for the 85/1.5 lens, I'm showing it with a Canon 85-135 zoom finder which I just got today. This finder has the little pin needed to work with the VI-T's auto parallax correction pin in the accessory shoe. This finder, by the way, doesn't have a very long zoom range, but it's by far the brightest, clearest zoom viewfinder I've ever used.

Well I am sure some of you collector types will probally kill me, but the white text on the front of the lens been painted over with black matte enamel paint (it got a scratch on the paint, so in attempt to conceal the scratch, I took a dab, and was like aww screw it.) So now it looks exactly the same and great condition still (glass was never damaged, nor the metal), but you just see a black ring around the lens as opposed to the branding, serial number and focal length). I don't plan to ever resell the lens, and lens are intended to take pictures, not be looked at all the time .

Ok here we go, I just reshot the Canon P 5 mins ago while I'm here at work, so you can see what I meant by "repainted". (one shot without the filter on, and one with the UV on.

Probably has something to do with the sudden breakup of Belgium that I was reading about in the newspaper today...

Most recent browser, also you'll notice on the bottom it said "done" so , it's done loading. and I both clicked and cut and paste ( not the url inside the address bar). The site is probally just not compatible with firefox (damn IE-only sites)

Is it just me, or are none of the Canons you attached a Canon P, two are 7s, and the last one... not sure what that is, not a P tho.

I use mainly the P due to its nice design ; I also used the chrome 7; though the black 7 is fully working, it's only for the collection; the other camera pictured is a Canon V-T.
There are also in my collection Canons IIB, II-F, IIIa, IV-F, IV-SB and some SLR's (F1n, EF,AE-1,...)
Sorry Firefox users, I made the site with Frontpage a few years ago. Perhaps I could do something in the future to make it readable by any browser...
