    I guess I get to be first this year as I am apparently the first one to recover and have nothing else with which to satiate my G. A. S. (gear acquisition syndrome). So here goes.

    Mamiya RB67 Pro-S body
    90mm Sekor f3.8
    No. 1 extension ring
    RB67 120 film back
    RB67 Pro-S 120 film back
    Waist level finder
    Strap
    (2) dark slides (back were cheap and sans)
    15 rolls of Arista.edu 120

    (3) Graflex 4x5 sheet film holders
    (1) 50 ct box of Arista.edu 4x5 sheet film
    (1) zippered belt bag to hold up to six holders
    (1) Graflex 4x5 roll film adapter

    One 645 negative carrier for my Lucky enlarger
    One 75mm Lucky enlarging lens
    two contact printing frames
    three 8x10 dev trays
    three 12x16 dev trays
    tongs
    4x5 daylight processing tank
    Gralab Darkroom timer
    Red safelight
    250 sheets of Arista Premium RC/Glossy paper
    Paper safe (holds 100)
    Chemicals galore
    a couple of older photography books
    Rubber stamps for my prints
    neg sheets
    Sham wows (for drying prints)
    Extra enlarging bulb
    Graduates and bottles
    Blackberry cell phone (RIM) for darkroom music (Aw, who am I kidding)

    I know there is more but that is pretty much it from memory. WHEW!

    Good morning, Chris;

    I am involved in a related activity at this time; performing an inventory of all of the things I have already. This task is turning out to be time consuming, and perhaps embarrassing. The length of the computer file is impressive.

    I'm about to undergo a paring down of my stuff today - getting rid of a bunch of Contax SLR stuff, to (hopefully) trade for a Contax G2 body and maybe the 21mm lens.

    Do you want this year's GAS or a cummulative total? Like Ralph, cataloguing everything I have is a very time consuming task. To keep the list manageable, I'll just do the last two months:

    Top-RF Crown Graphic 4x5
    Ektar 127mm lens
    Nikkor-W 150mm f5.6
    Nikkor-SW 90mm f8
    3 Grafmatics
    Calumet C-2 roll film back
    2 lens boards (flat & deep) for a Graphic View
    Canon Motor Drive MA (to replace mine which has a damaged film rewind lever)
    Graflex RB Series D 4x5
    Manhattan Optical Cycle Wizard B 4x5
    Exacta VX with 50mm f3.5 Tessar
    Zenit-C with 50mm f3.5 Industar-50

    This is awesome! I thought I was insane to have a list sitting on my computer. But since you all do it, I'll post my own later.

    I have wanted a Hassie for years, but I've noticed that KEH has the smallest inventory of medium format cameras and lenses etc. at the moment that I've ever seen there. So...there isn't even much to fantasize about. Rats! :sad:

    This season's GAS only. My list is for February alone. It seems there are a couple of cumulative totals here. Though if not then I'm doing something horribly wrong.

    Fantasize on ebay. I got a RB67 setup for under $300.00. It's not a Hassy but it will do.

    Ohhh, I need more stuff! Your lists are impressive!!! I would like to get another Nikon camera body so one could be set up with color and one with black and white and I could share lenses. My family is pretty sure that I have spent too much on my new hobby already in the last couple of months (getting all the stuff for the darkroom) so I'll have to take a month or two off before my 2nd camera purchase! I do need one before I take my FM2 in for cleaning though because I can't stand to be without it.

    Christopher, what kind of a set-up would you like for $ 300,- ?
    How handy are you ?
    I got a RB S with prism, 120 back and 127 with shutter problems for $ 175,- at ebay.
    I will fix the shutter myself......, apply a bit of paint here and there and so on.

    So: stop dreaming !

    I don't understand the nature of your remarks, Peter. But if I read you right, my dreams are a reality. That first portion under the RB67 body. That WAS for $300 including shipping. I just hit it right I guess. I have and am using it all now. Well, a couple of darkslides and a strap and some film later pushed it up to $400. But, still. WOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't understand what the thread is about. Are you listing items which you recently purchased? If so, how recently? Or is this about things on your list of items that you hope to purchase?
