    Its a good thing I've been procrastinating at renewing my passport or I'd likely come up and spend way too much there. :smile: I haven't been to a swap meet before.

    The event is almost over and I took care of my G,A.S. for a very small amount. Picked up 2 FD lenses and a light meter and ANOTHER camera as well as a bulk film loader that had a very hefty weight to it. Now I am the proud owner of about 80' of fogged Kodak 5063 safety film. Oh well I wasn't expecting much for $2. The deals I got on the lenses & light meter & camera made up for the disappointing film buy. Ran into another APUG member and a few other friends. So life is still good....

    I was there, I picked up a few cheap cameras that I'm testing out right now. I bought a Bolsey 35mm for $15, but after one shot the shutter get stuck. I also got a Trip 35 for $5, it was previously dropped so the iso ring only turns as low as 125iso, but I'm running a roll right now to see what happens. And I got a Kodak Brownie Junior six-20 for $10, and another 1920's box camera (Eho Altissa) for $30 which takes 120 film and works. Playing with it now to figure out the different apertures and exposures.

    It was my first swap meet and it was fun, some really good deals in there. I was disappointed that I didn't see any film or photo paper for sale though. I'm definitely going to the next one, whenever that is.
