yeah!
my 'new' konica c35 is being shipped tomorrow. bought it off someone at photonet, he says it works and i'm looking forward to playing with it.
will finish off the rolls in my recently acquired canonet 17 and konica s3 tomorrow and then develop the film to see if they work or not.

it feels good to shoot again.

Joe,
If this one is dead, I will send you mine! The film counter is out, but I know the rest of IT works!!

Hope this one is better than the last. It is a good, light 70's P&S. The Vivitar equivalent has more weight to it. The Olympus ECR uses really-hard-to-find batteries. I took off the base plate and "Hot Wired" mine to use a Lithium 2032 flat battery. It works! Electrons will do as Electrons do.

well, it showed at the door today.

it looked real good, clean and everything was tight.
but the meter needle did not move...
...thankfully, it was only due to a dead battery which i changed and now it seems to work just fine.
yipee!!

now to find time to shoot some film.

Let us know. I am still holding the C35. May is going to be "Spring Cleaning" as I trim some of the "accumulation" down.

Well we had another rainy friday here yesterday... As I'm starting to love rain, I took another couple of rainy pictures, but I'm sure I lost 6 or 7 good ones for each one I shot... Aaaargh... street shooting is NOT easy ! :bang:
