There is a Mamiya C330 for sale at the camera shop I go to. I'd consider buying it, but I think I got my Seagull working alright finally.

Kiev 66. I had to wait for the digital revolution to occur to drive prices down before I could afford to replace it with a Mamiya 645 Pro TL.

I only have a steel reel, with clip, for my 120 processing. I ruined a bunch of frames before I finally learned to do it well. I always feel with my fingers to make sure it is right, and take it...

I'm gonna send my 1966 Nikkormat to my Russian guy, Gary Airapetov (garryscamera.com). He's CLA'ed four of my cameras so far, charges half what others charge.

Digital X-700

My daughter's bf, about 17 or 18, asked her why she just didn't upload photos from the computer onto my Minolta X-700 to complete her photography class assignment. God's honest truth.

"Not that social; just a good drinker". Ok I stole that from the Von Bondies. Jack White got in a fist fight with their base player over a woman. Was arrested.

Anybody like the Olympus Infinity AF (non-zoom)? It has a 35mm f2.8 lens. I just picked one up at the thrift store over my lunch break. I noticed it has no way of adjusting the ASA.

I'd call it a two lens camera. I have a 35mm and a 50mm and little desire to get any other focal lengths.

Very nice. I like the style of the whole thing. I know a guy who repairs room-size CNC machines. I wish he'd let me in to do a photo shoot of him like this.

Best: Mamiya 645 Pro TL , 80mm, 150mm lenses, back, and metered mirror-finder for $330. Would have been worth a couple thousand just a few years ago. Wedding photogs can't ditch these in favor of...

I can't imagine anybody bad-mouthing Tri-X. Like saying Olivia de Havilland or Susan Hayward were not pretty. I suppose it's possible to hold that opinion; seems so unlikey though.
