    Well, with the Part Deux camera having safely arrived in Australia, negs having being scanned and published, it occurred that maybe it would be unique to send the travelling camera back home again.

    Unfortunately, as the Vivitar Compact camera demonstrated, this particular camera doesn't travel so well with 15 stops around the globe, with a failure of either the film advance mechanism, or the return lock (the button you press to enable rewind) probable causes of multiple exposures.


    I had an idea! Why not send a similar camera back through the same route?


    I'm going to pick a camera at random. Okay, it'll be my wifes Kodak Compact Camera. It'll be loaded with 24 exposures of HP5 (same film as the original camera).

    It'll be launched from here (Sydney, Australia on Feb 1 2006) to eventually end up at the place the whole idea started, nsmith01tx, in Texas, USA.

    All previous participants are included in the return trip. If you have already indicated acceptance don't bother doing it again. If you haven't let me know or are not interested please let me know.

    We had some folks who dropped out during the trip here, so if you're new and interested in participating let me know. There are a couple of free shots available.

    I've reserved 2 shots for BobF if he choses to participate as his shot the last round magically disappeared.


    Graham.

    Better include Bob-proof instructions this time! :wink:

    One point occurs: it looks like the choice of HP5+ was a good one for the original camera as the scans looked pretty good in terms of shadow detail - perhaps a bit overexposed in the sunlit ones - but better over than than under...

    Cheers, Bob.

    I guess I haven't been around here much lately. If it's not too late, I'm up for participating in the return trip. I was #3 last time, so I'll be near the bitter end on this one.

    Graham, thanks for scanning an uploading. Nice work, everyone!

    Nope, not dead, just having a bit of a sleep. It's interesting that the round one camera is *still* going **lol**

    I have a replacement camera, it's a Canon Sure Shot ACE date. A quite expensive P&S camera in its day, but these days - what the heck, I have too many cameras and my wife has two digicams so this one won't be missed.

    The data back has a blat flattery which is good, and the camera battery is going strong which is also good.

    I'm going to load it with a roll of hp5 tomorrow, shoot a test roll, develop tomorrow night and ship out on Monday.

    I'll be sending a bunch of PM's tonight/tomorrrow to those folks who indicated they would be interested in participating. If I don't hear back from any of you by the time the camera reaches the person before you, you will be skipped. BobF is the first person on the list. Bob if you read this PM me to let me know you're still in.

    Let's move this camera around folks and finish the trip in record time.


    Thanks
    Graham.
