I'm just waiting on delivery of a Voigtlander Color-Skopar 21mm f4 LTM & also just bought the mother of all tiny wide angles, a '33 35mm Elmar 3.5 with original hood & yellow filter. Either will make my black paint iii f the ultimate point & shoot pocketable camera. The 21 with an adapter will see double duty on the M4.

I bought 5 rolls of 110 Tudor 200 asa colour print film, which expired in 2006:



I wasn't going to include this one, but just in case there's a Lomography employee reading this and if they're thinking of stocking their tiger 200 film again, I thought I'd better had:



See? Black letters and numbers on a white background, making them easy to read. They didn't emboss tiny white letters and tiny white numbers onto a white background making them practically impossible to read!

I bought four sr44 batteries for my zoom slr mk2 as the 2 that came with it were starting to fail, so I thought I'd get a couple of spares while I was at it.

I also bought a sales brochure for the camera (click on the thumbnail):



The pics were taken by the ebay seller.

I bought yet another 2 boxes of "3x lomo tiger 200" film. So far I have 20 rolls?/cartridges? of it, and I'm expecting a "1x" box of it.

At the speed I go that'll probably be a minimum of 7 years worth, if not 10 years worth.

This is on top of the four tudor 200 films that expired in 2006 that I've still got.

Yes, I know i shouldn't have bought so many, because while they are 'resting' in my fridge they can't be 'working' for anyone else.

(I was going to say "...can't be 'working' for other photographers." but that would imply my skill level wasn't totally abysmal.)

Tell her how brakeless is the standard for all the young kids these days, I'm sure that will help her understand.

I just purchased a Sekonic L718 meter at a heck of a deal, at least compared to what they are going for on the auction site.

I also brought a set of enlarger contrast filters home the same day. Is it normal for filter number 3 to be missing? The shop had both a new and a used set of the same filters and they were both missing #3. I did an extremely brief google search to see what I could find and didn't see anything. He explained to me two options, that #3 is the least used filter so most companies don't include it OR that #3 is basically like not using a filter at all so there is no reason to make it.

Every contrast set I have owned (Kodak Polycontrast) has included a #3. Number 2 was the same as no filter. Ilford's may be different.

A new pair of shoes. A copy of "Hell's Angels" by the prophet, Hunter Thompson. A David Bowie CD. A vanilla malt from Shake Shack. A few rolls of TriX.
About to pull the cord on at least 800ft of DXN 5222 and another 400ft of TXR 7266.

My 21st roll/cartridge of "Lomo 110 Tiger 200" film turned up earlier today.

I suppose I could say that I almost "panic bought" them.

The woman who works for Lomo who told me "they had no particular plans to re-stock either their colour 120 film or their tiger 200 film" certainly knew what she was doing.

A box with one hundred sheets of Adox MCC 110, 18x24cm, the fourth in a few months. Super nice paper.

Leica M3, Summicron 50mm f/2 v4, 400-2TMY, printed on Adox MCC 110.

I bought a Lomo Blik rangefinder:

(As usual, click on the thumb for big pic.)




Feels a bit less 'plasticky' than I'd expected. The rangefinder window is a bit bright for my taste, I prefer a slightly more 'even' balance between it and the real image. It was 'out' a bit when I got it but I've managed to adjust it, although when I checked it against the moon (through an inconvenient thin cloud) it seems to need a little more adjustment, but I think we'll get there in the end.

I got it to use with my Welta Weltax.

Just purchased two Nikon N75's at about $30 each. I now own 3. Hope at least one will be still working in 10 years or so when I hit 85.

Got them for the AF feature plus these cameras are extremely light (compared to my M6) and compact. Will use one as a companion to a medium format camera.

Been looking at Nikkormats all week because one of the techs at a local shop likes to paint both camera bodies and lenses. Stopped by today and they brought out two boxes of Nikkormats in various states of disrepair. I picked out a fairly nice FT2 and am currently deciding on both color and body cover. Sent Hugo Leather a question about the stingray leather and have been looking at various colors from Duracoat. Thinking about OD green but there are a lot of other colors that have caught my attention. Black and green, gray and crimson, tan and copper, any suggestions?

Apart from that have a Rolleiflex 3.5F, the odd Minolta XD7, Pentax 67, a Topcon Super D and an Intrepid 5x4 large format (not the half of it but I am clearing them out, honest).

I do all my own black and white developing at home.

I've indulged my irrational fascination with 110 cameras. I got a Hanimex VEF Zoom and a Fisher-Price Camera by Kodak. Why? Even I don't know....
