I have participated in one of these (usually refered to as chain cams), probably the ones mentioned early in this thread 'on that other site'. I think 1 out of 4 that have taken off have actually returned home, and the one that did make it back had it's journey truncated because it was taking so long and the 'owner' got it returned when they could... see this page for more details http://members.ozemail.com.au/~markthomasz/ My pic is #3 in the gallery :)

I would like to get in on this as well, I think it is a great idea, kinda like a traveling portfolio in reverse! :)

It seems like we have more willing photographers than there are shots on one of these cameras.

Can I suggest we split it up so that each country has its own camera? The APUGGERs from each country don't need to worry about sending it outside the borders and incurring high postage costs.

There may need to be a separate camera for the east and west coasts of USA, but otherwise there should be enough photographers from the UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand to make it work on a "per country" basis.

What do you think?

I kinda liked the idea of one camera traveling the world, so to speak. Just my opinion though - would want to do what is best for everyone. Maybe we could do the first project and send it around to the first 26 (I think that's the number of exposures) folks who responded; Kind of like a first come, first served sort of thing. Then for the 2nd project, we could continue with the list. What do ya'll think?

Count me in for the next round, or the first if someone drops out :)

Hm....maybe we could have the next to the last person on the roll buy the next camera (that way the last person does not have to bear the brunt of all expenses). Then that person would post here that they have the next camera & access the next group for mailing it. It would make the process continuous and everyone would get a rather quick chance at the camera.

I have been thinking about one other thing about this... aren't those B&W disposables C-41 processed? I'll look back through the thread to see if I missed this discussion. ;)

Actually, Ilford does make a disposable HP5+ camera... And I might be interested in doing this the second round, I like your idea Jeanette.

Hi all,

Bear with me this is long winded...

First off we have are 27 people so the camera is full. M. Walter Lyon was the cutoff. I have a total of 16 addresses. I would like to get the rest of them by the end of the week so that I can have it ready to go by Monday. I will pm these folks as well.

Sean,

Thank you should for the "stickie" and the "gallery" when this is done.

Jeanette,

I am sure that this camera is C41 as I bought it a Wal-mart.

Nicole,

Are you still ok with picking up the processing? The reason that I ask is that tomtom also offered, but he is here in the states and I think sending it half way around the world just to have it processed is a complete waste of money. Of course, we don't know anything about blowing money on that $10 box of junk at the local camera show right?

And lastly I agree with digi about the camera travelling the world.

G.

P.S. I did buy TWO cameras though

I like the idea of a "world camera", and I will again volunteer to cover the cost of exporting the camera from Canada to WHEREVER.

cheers

John,

Thanks again for the offer. I had forgotten about your offer when I posted earlier. I will surely put you in line so that when it goes outside of Canada you can send it.

When David Goldfarb mentioned earlier that with the traveling portforlio he made it as easy geograpjically as possible. I pretty much have the U.S. figured out. I am just not sure about what may be the easiest and least expensive route the rest of the way.

The camera will visit the following countries:

Belgium
Canada
Denmark
England
Austraila
Hawaii

I know, I know, Hawaii is not a country. But for shipping purposes I think that might be the right way to look at it. As always, any suggestions are welcome

Could this be an interesting route :

US
Canada
US
Hawai
Australia
England
Belgium
Denmark
?

Here's my suggested route:

Mid-West US
Canada
England
Belgium
Denmark
Australia
Hawaii
Western US
Eastern US

Now what about prints for people? I would be willing to chip in to get a set of prints for myself - or here's a blasphemous thought - would be willing to get a Photo CD at time of development.

Regards, Art.

An alternative to this travelling camera would be a single day challenge. Pick a day, everyone has to shoot one roll that day wherever they are, whatever they are doing and post the best one or two shots.

Sort of a combination of the APUG photo challenge and the "Day in the Life" books that were popular about 10-15 years back.

Just a random thought.

You can also count me in for shipping outside the US since I am on the East Coast. I can send it off across the Atlantic.

I would also like to chip in and get a set of prints for myself.
