    There has been some interest expressed in another round of Toy Camera print exchanges.

    The last day for signup for this round will be April 15th
    All prints must go out by May 31st.

    I am proposing another group exchange of 4-6 people per group, but if people want to do individual exchanges, please speak up. We can take a poll to determine the final decision.

    I'd love to participate.

    How toy is 'toy' though? I haven't got a Holga but have a bunch of brownie, converted brownie pinholes and even a Dollar Store 35mm. do these count?

    I could make this one most likely, but I'll have just started printing. I think I'll wait for the next one.

    Does a Lubitel qualify?

    Cheers

    Sorry I missed your post. They all sound toy-ish to me. I am inclined to be more inclusive to begin with, then maybe offer specialized ones (Diana only, LOMO only, instamatic only, etc.) once there is enough momentum and interest in diversification.

    Pete, let me get into the darkroom and see if I can make the prints this next week and if so then I'll join in. With finals coming up during that time period it will be a crunch.

    Sounds fun, I have never done this. How do I sign up, who do I send prints to, etc...

    PM me with your name and address- I will add you to the list and send you a list of names (about 4-6 people) to send prints to when the time comes.

    Participate

    I'd like to participate and I like the idea of keeping it to a small number of people only because it is more managable time wise and finance wise when I start sending internationally Can. Post is expensive.

    Does anyone remember who was organizing the Diana camera print exchange? I accidently erased all the PM's relating to it, and I wanted to see who was supposed to send me a print. Yes, I too have experienced the 'got stiffed on the print exchange' thing. I'm beginning to think one-on-one exchanges are the only way to go. Too many free-riders.

    I'd quite like to participate.

    My toy-ish cameras are a Lubitel 1 and a Zeiss box camera (one of the very early ones with fixed focus and a single shutter speed).

    If they are acceptable, I'm in.

    I think that either one of those would be acceptable.

    I noticed a couple people missing from the list - Anupam Basu and mikeg - who posted in this thread they would like to participate. Did they drop out?

    Regards, Art.

    Sorry -- I'm just snowed under with work at the moment. Hopefully next time.

    Cheers
