    just dropped the one I was using and it shattered into many SHARP shards---so now I have to wear shoes in my place until I get all the pieces---man when they are brittle they break like glass--I had a different one that wasn't as brittle but that met a bad end too....

    ANYWAYS--who gots? email me please: johnielvis@aol.com

    Look John. Why don't you just trade me all of your stuff for all of my stuff?

    I have one somewhere. I'll look for it. If I find it, then you can send me something interesting in exchange.

    Hi John. I found it. It seems to be in operation condition. I think there may be a piece broken off of it near the timer on the back. Maybe the piece was for a strap attachment? Whatever it is rotates but looks like it is only partly there.

    As far as stuff I am looking for:

    - some sort of vignetter system/compendium hood or filter holder system
    - Cambo parts...I thought I might be able to turn a spare standard into a vignetter (or use longer lenses if I picked up another bellows and rail extension)
    - If you have some Cambo bellows frames or an old Cambo bellows with pinholes that I could scavenge the frames from to make a vignetter, , that would be cool.
    - Graphic Film Pack adapters in any format.
    - Eastman whole-plate format holder (film or plate) or whole-plate sheaths
    - any size #6 synchro Packard shutter

    Can't think of anything else I'm looking for. The DS-34 sounds interesting but I'd really rather have something listed above. But, if nothing on that list is available, don't sweat it, just surprise me.

    I have the camera boxed and will send it tomorrow.

    Joe
