    just throwing this out to New Englanders...if anyone who doesn't work in medium format want to borrow my 645 Super camera w/the 50mm shift lens (sorry, thats all I have for it) for a few weeks or so....or anybody who hasn't gotten into large format, want to borrow my 4x5 Cambo, w/bag bellows, polaroid back, 90mm lens, and everything else that goes with it, for a few weeks, let me know. They are just sitting here not being used and taking up space. We can meet up somewhere, take some photos and then take it home.

    Bravo Drew !! Nice to see someone else trying this. My "MF Loaner Program" has been a hit, and I have always gotten my equipment back.

    Very generous of you Drew and if I were in New England I would borrow the 4x5. Another example of how wonderful this APUG community is.

    Regards,
    Bill

    Thats "nuts" Generous yes, even very,very kind but nuts just the same. I'd loan my car maybe even my wife before I'd loan my cameras out!

    A very generous offer to those without the opportunity to have such an experience. For all the fat cats with all the equipment it's hard to conceive such an offer. I can remember back in the old days when equipment was as expensive as a house and one could only take the used camera and dream of better things. I hope it works out for some lucky ones.
