Let me tell you about a friend I have:

On FB in a group, he just stated:

I LOVE old cameras but I am not a collector..
Time prevents me from using my small format cameras so here's the deal:

I'll give this away on two conditions:

1: the reciever HAS to use it (not for a collection)
2: I want a print made using this camera, by the new owner...

(3):you only pay shipping...

And the cameras he is passing on?

A nice looking Horizont panoramic camera with holder
A BEAUTIFUL mint condition Konica Hexar
A Canon (don't remember the model) with a leitz 90mm F2.8
A Speed Graflex with a nice 150mm lens fitted...

I think if he had made this offer inhere, his inbox would fill up rather quickly!...

Pass it on!

Gotta love that guy!
(He gave me my big studio camera with Cooke 14" cooke soft lens to go with it....)

i would be very thrilled and honored to be given a speed graflex. i would happily give him a print from my darkroom!
how would he be contacted for consideration?

I want the Speed Graphic. I deserve it. I'm not married and there's nothing to marry but fat women, so I need this hobby to keep me from flipping out and shooting small animals with other implements; in this exile. Thank you.

Ha ha, your first post. Welcome to APUG noacronym.

Thanks, Fotch. I see you're from Wisconsin. I always imagined it a place with a beautiful countryside; that is, when you folks aren't freezing to death.

The cold helps keep the riffraff out

Wow, are any of these still available, Im not a collector, however do love all cameras, I would be will to shoot, and then develop and send, and even pass on to the next person. kind of like a chain camera project. that would be pretty cool.
