    Funny thing is I really don't "need" anything, but love just rummaging around for stuff.

    I will try to get there. Still tentatively in the market for 4 x 5.

    Shane, you always "need" something. :wink:

    I don't need anything either, but I've never been to one!

    Actually I do. I should be able to pick up a cheap Leica body cap there maybe, huh?

    I just enjoy seeing stuff in "real life" - I've stopped actually buying anything at them (although never say never!!!), and generally just wander around and get into interesting conversations about odd stuff, or with folks I already know!!

    I'll probably see some of you there!

    I'll be there to find something I don't need, don't want, don't really have a use for, but couldn't go home without it.

    Yes, but what will you hear when you get home? Tonight when my wife rang to say she was on her way home, I told her "I bought a new camera today", and she replied (sarcastically) "That's great!" :wink:

    Brave man telling her!

    Will you have it by Sunday?

    Do you need some bits and pieces to be able to use it?

    Yes, still in the dog house. Won't have it until late next week
    and I still need a lens. And I probably need some film, and a spare box for used film, and probably a few other things...

    Reporting back. There was quite a large turnout. You really had to push your way in to see most items. Caught up with Shane, Mick, Marc and Christine. Shane, Mick and I made purchases. Mine is a Schneider 150mm lens.

    Yes, once again I didn't actually buy anything!! I did spend a fair bit of time staring at the Bolex 16mm cameras, and Christine was playing with the many Hasselblad bodies for sale... Nice to catch up with everyone as usual, and good to see you outfitting your new Wista Kevin!!

    Marc, well done on resisting the impulse. I saw Mick after I was talking to you guys and told him that I think Christine has developed Hasselblad envy. That could get very expensive very quickly. :wink: I did see a couple of nice looking 'blads though. Yes, I think I did quite well with my lens. Thanks for the technical advice, Mick. :smile: Nice to see you all.

    I brought some of those item that fit into the category, "seemed like a good idea at the time". So who does know how to use Kodak Sepia tone and Poly tone?
    Never saw Tim there.

    Well my big purchase of the day was a Schneider Tele-Arton 5.6 250 for 4x5.

    Seems it was manufactured around 1973 (ish) and looks very clean with only a very small amount of Schneideritis on the rear element paint.

    The rear of the Compur 1 shutter looks as though it is missing a back plate, as I don't have any other Compur shutters to compare it too, I'll have to investigate.

    Bought it from the couple down from Sydney, the ones with some very nice equipment.

    Saw two Nikon F3 bodies go for $200.00 each whilst alongside them the FE2 with $450.00 on it was still there when I left. Seems to be priced out of the market even for Oz.

    Also picked up a 100 sheet box of 5x7 Xiamen Brand enlarging paper with what I think is a "Silky" surface, we'll see if it's fogged or useable. $8.00.

    Picked up a book, "What the Traveller Saw" by Eric Newbury $8.00. The pictures which appear to cover 50 years of world travel and B&W photography along with some very compelling text, makes me believe that this will not leave my bookshelf until I kark it.

    Christine, I hope your malaise isn't too severe, the medicine can be costly:D

    Mick.

    Hi guys,

    I'm on the organizing committee for the market. Next time there will be more room between tables in the middle of the hall - it was quite a squeeze! Any other comments I can pass on to the committee?

    I thought most prices were down - picked up a few things I never thought I'd find (a protor cable release timer - times shutter speeds from 2 to 32 seconds. Then I found the professional version with the cable release built in). Also bought a couple of Mamiya quick release plates (complete - $5 each), and a 105 lens for my C220 - a few scratches, but good shutter - for $25......And I thought $5 for 30 meters of 5 year old Agfapan 400 was fair...

    Looking forward to the next one in September - and the one in Adelaide in May....

    Hi Andrew K,
    I see that you have just joined, so welcome to APUG. Is it possible to vary the day to Saturday, say every second time? I'd really love to go, but I have another commitment on Sunday mornings. I'm sure there must be others with similar issues.
    Cheers, Peter.

    I missed it! I actually didn't realise that it was this (last) weekend, I thought it was in a few weeks time. It would be good to meet everyone as it seems like there are a few people on the forum in Melbourne, there is always next time!

    Andrew K, well the refreshments place could be better, especially if people knew it was there with some signage. Great location through the tunnel to the quiet area with tables and chairs to ponder ones purchases. Would be even better if they had hot chocolate. :D

    Yep, the centre aisle was a joke. I was in the first dozen people and walked down the right side first, turned left to walk up the centre and was met with a wall of people. Pushed, shoved and wended my way through once, didn't go back again, probably missed something, but it didn't matter.

    I was expecting an executive decision by management to get the two rows in the centre aisle to pull their tables back. It would've been a lot better for their potential sales, many people just didn't go up or down that aisle.

    Mick.
