    I have no idea where to put this, so I figured 35mm forum might work. :confused:
    I thought I had given up the darkroom for good, but it was not to be. My daughter is wanting to learn some, and now it's got me all excited again...so I bought someone's old darkroom setup off of Craigslist last night, and low and behold...2 cameras, & some lenses came with it. I have no idea if they are good or not, but I'm a Minolta guy and if I'm going to bother with old cameras, I don't really care to shoot anything else in 35mm - mainly because they are what I know and love.

    So...if anyone wants them - you pay the shipping and they're yours free. I bet they all fit in a Priority Mail flat rate box, too. :tongue:

    Teleconverter and maybe some other odds & ends with them.

    If anyone uses this gear, please shoot me a PM. Thanks!

    I like the Konicas I have, alas I live in the UK so it would more than likely cost way too much to be sent :sad:

    You might be surprised. I have sent 35mm equipment to the US and the postage has not been much more than posting domestically. If it's similar the other way round, it could still be feasible.

    I think I have enough cameras and I am sure there are plenty of others far more deserving of the kit than me, my main 35mm systems are OM and Fuji X anyhow, though I use Fd as I got a 24mm at a bargain price.

    konica was very good in the day. Lens are excellent. My second 35mm SLR was a Konica T with a 1.2 lens, I also had a 28, 35, 100 and 135, the only reason I moved to Nikon was that I needed a motor drive.
