    Hi all

    just a reminder the next photo market is on Sunday week the 19th September at the Box Hill Town Hall, Whitehorse Rd, Box Hill - starting at 9am.

    Admission is still only $2.

    I'm on the organising committee, and we have listened to the feedback from the last market, and are trying a new table layout. Hopefully the new layout will spread people out a bit more so there will be more room around the tables.

    I'm also sharing a table with a friend of mine -I'll be near the front door, so drop by and say hi. Just look for the table with the Pentax 67 outfit on it (roughish, but working well and cheap), a Graphic View 5X4 and a few interesting darkroom bits..

    See you then

    Andrew

    hI andrew, will you have a fairly wide Pentax 67 lens? Maybe a 55 ? I want something less than 90.

    Neato - hopefully someone has an inexpensive Copal 3 top hat lensboard in the Linhof/Wista style they're selling for a song...

    Marc!

    It was way better than the previous one, not as much pushing and shoving this time. My five year old was over it within the first two minutes, but we said a quick hello to Mick, Shane, Marc and Christine. How did everybody go? Mick and Shane bought some nice $50 loupes. I bought a 90mm lens. Anybody else?

    I was there at opening time for once, mainly because I had to leave by 9:45 for another appointment. A quiet day for me - the only significant thing was a Peak enlarging focuser for $80 which at one stage had been priced over $500. It is a model 1 (the top of the range), and was brand new so I decided to splurge a little. The other bits were just as analog - a couple of Pentax reloadable cartridges (one in it's box), a Linhof 70mm cartridge and a Pentax eyecup II which is probably for the spotmatic/K cameras. There were other bits and pieces but nothing I couldn't pick up on eBay just as cheap.

    Well beside the Peak x4 square loupe, I pick up some 50 sheets each of 8x10 RC paper and 12x16 RC paper.

    Yet again I bought nothing at all!! Such self-restraint - we were on the lookout for a Hasselblad for Christine to try, and I did like the stall with all the beautiful Rolleiflexes on it....

    Looking forward to the March one...

    Marc!

    I bought 8 rolls of Agfa Vista 200 (exp 2009) for $8, and 20 rolls of some 400 speed C-41, in a black canister, with french writing under "For color prints" (same thing but in french) that would seem about the same age for $10.

    35mm bulk loader for $15.

    Some parts of a colour analyser/enlarger that needs repair for $20.

    I didnt have much to spend :sad:

    I picked up an OM1w/1.8/50 at the market. The lens has a sticky/weak diaphragm spring. My fault for not checking more thoroughly. I think I'm over OM's now. I traded some in with lenses a while ago and felt nostalgic, but that's over now. I think I'lll stick to Nikon and Leica. The APCS changed the setup with the tables and it seems to have helped with access. Most markets can be a bit of a bun fight at times.

    You can add another Peake focusscope for me (there were only model 2's and 3's left when I got there)..still for $30 who's complaining?? I also got a Reflex Korelle - a 1930's 120 SLR - rough, but working perfectly...for $10 I'm more than happy!

    Sold a bit too - didn't buy a Rolleiflex, but if I'd realised how much I'd sold....


    I think the table layout worked better, and there were more people this time than the last market - just over 500 through the doors...

    As usual I missed out on a few bargains...a friend picked up a old 28/6.3 Leica Hektor wide angle...another friend got a Canon 6 rangefinder with lens..it was jammed, but he managed to get it working....very nice camera....

    Don't know whether I'll have a table in March...then again...that's what I always say.....it is a good way to get a bit of money together to buy more toys.....

    I picked up the aforementioned Peak 4 x loupe, beautiful little thing, better than my Schneider one for the GG of a camera, square base makes a reall difference.

    I also managed to find a pair of virtually brand new Lisco Regal II DDS, still in the original packaging, $30.00.

    Good to meet up with some of the others.

    Met Athiril, first person I have ever seen walking around with an RB67 as his walk around camera in his back pack. Then when he pulled out the 4x5 as well, I wasn't too sure what was to follow. I know there was other stuff in there. Plus he was walking around with shopping bags full of film and draped over a shoulder was the colour enlarger bits.

    The layout of the tables was fantastic, plus talking to Alan King he mentioned that with this layout they were able to get a couple more tables in.

    Perhaps they should enforce a clearance to the walkway to the coffee place. Borg had their table there and were basically spreading stuff all over the place. They also had so much stuff on the floor it was a hazard and I saw one person fall onto another as he walked past and didn't see stuff about 1 metre out from their table.

    I saw the Peak focusing scope that Paul picked up, yep, very good price.

    Actually the price of the Borg stuff was really, really cheap, for brand new stuff. They appear to have lost their distribution rights of the Wallace Expo Disc, they were going for 33% of their original price, plus the Peak stuff was so low it makes you realise why we tend to purchase stuff straight from overseas markets, and still get it substantially cheaper.

    Mick.
