Count me in too! Looks like the little camera will have a loooong way to go. Does it come with a manual? :D

Hi all,

Right now we have a total of twenty people lined up and there are seven more exposures left. Am waiting to hear from Sean on what forum we can possibly post these in. If you all lhave any ideas on this, please feel free to speak up. Also, the only other problem we may have is the cost of shipping this to the various countries. My thought is perhaps after we know were the camera is going then perhaps we should shoot in U.S. first then send it to the next country, so on unless you have a better idea. Lastly, I think that each of should have the camera for one week to take you shot then send it on.

What I've done with the Traveling Portfolio is to make a list so the portfolio moves in the most efficient way possible (geographically at least!), accounting for issues like willingness to pay for international postage. On a little disposable camera, that's not as much of an issue, so you can just go by geography and postal rates.

Just have everyone pm you their address, make up the list, and Sean can probably set up a password protected page for the address list for the group, like we have for the Traveling Portfolio and the Postcard Exchange, and it's also a good idea to include a copy of the list with the camera, in case someone gets it and temporarily doesn't have computer access for some reason (this has happened with the portfolio!).

Maybe we could even stick a couple of bucks in the package prior to passing it on to help with the next photographer's postage?

You can add me to the list. Every camera deserves a good Hawaii photo.

I think that paying the way to the next stop will just about even everyone out, and in the spirit of helpfullness, I volunteer to be the mailer who sends from Canada to the next country.
I have a feeling though, that our "cash in the package" will disappear at the first customs inspection :), so I think we should pass on that idea (no matter how charitable it is).

cheers

We could still do it while the cam is in the States and if you're willing to contribute to sending it overseas, the next person there could continue with the 'donation' and so on and so on.

Digi,

I like that idea and when I start I will thow in a couple of bucks for the border crossing. If it gets to be too expensive for someone to ship overseas and those that want to contribute via paypal or something like that.

I'm assuming we should PM you with those?

I want in!

Anyone want to discuss if it would be a good thing to put the disposable camera in a less-disposable box tied with string or something so it'd be much easier to ship. My first thought would be a cheap rubbermaid box with a lid, then put the camera in a ziplock bag inside. We could punch a couple of holes in the lid and box through which we could thread some twine and tie it shut. (I guess tape would also work, but several generations of tape would really make the thing gummy and hard to process by various post offices.) Then, each recipient need only slap on some postage, two shipping labels, and tie it shut.

Is the topic for this roll going to be wide open, or shall we (or "you", if the event is full already) shoot on a given theme?

Finally, whose going to process it? Shall the last person on the list just take it to an hour minilab, get a photoCD and post the images? Maybe we'll have to get a special gallery from Sean if we're going to post a whole roll of images for one event. Almost certainly, that will overflow any single person's quota.

Mullet,

You're in. Just pm me your address. I left subject open, thinking that whatever struck you might strike us as well. To me the beautiful part is that none of us know what the other is shooting so it might be quite suprising. As far as how to pack the camera for shipment I am open to any suggestions for keeping it as undamaged as possible ( who knows gets a couple of cracks in it we have a 35mm Holga! ) As far as processing goes however the last person who gets it can make that decision. However, it is C41 so it will more than likely have to be done commercially. In another part of the thread David Goldfarb had some recommendations about how we can go about posting the images. Have pm'ed Sean just waiting to hear from him.

I'm not fussed. I'll volunteer to either send it on overseas from Australia or develop it, although I wouldn't take it to a minilab, but prefer a B&W pro lab to be safe after such a huge journey!
