What lens did you get for the parking meter. LOL. Nice find on the T90.

That was bizarre! I went looking (google) for a pic of the T90 because I'm not totally familiar with it and when I bought up all the search images, in the middle of them was a pic of Raid's wife and children.

The T90 is a solidly pro camera marred by the dreaded EEE error. Most still working now had the shutter replaced, though, so you should really enjoy running some film through it.

So you pretty much bought 20 rolls of Provia and they threw in a free T90? Nice.

Now to google the T90...

I wonder who'll turn up if you search for images of a parking meter!

Google search are prioritised to what you had search before based on your history and site visited, so if Raid/wife shows up... that can only mean....

I've always been a Nikon guy, but the T90 has always impressed the heck out of me. It was a really innovative camera.

i had a couple of t90 bodies years ago, always been a favourite of mine.
that body style has been an influence for many to follow.

Dealers hated T90 cameras. They wouldn't sit upright on the shelf if they had a lens attached. The base was too narrow and the balance was off when you put a lens on the body. Many of them landed on the floor.

so the seller and his neighbourhood was pretty sketchy, though he was very friendly.
the camera looked good so i bought it and took it home.
the bad thing is my memory of how to use it and what all the buttons were for has completely left my foggy brain...had to read the manual! still not 100% on it but i assume muscle memory might eventually kick in. i forgot how loud it was...

on another note my parking meter is sitting in the front hall amongst all my shoes.
it weighs a ton and i'm thinking i may need an assistant to help carry it around to various sites. i have to say...it feels pretty cool to have my own parking meter.
