Stop buying gear. USE the stuff! ;-) dont fall into the trap, no more gear...lots of gear is bad...so says the guy whose wife has stated that I am in an intervention moment. :-)

Enjoy the art, beautiful finds.

The man has GAS! Let him blow it out or air down before you start this kind of talk.

Bill can speak for himself as well :D

Just let me say I know Bill, he HAS NOT GOT GAS :) ,well only mildly, although he knows I lust after his Zenit C :)

If you put yourself around you find/spot these cameras, you sell most you keep a few.

I know. But I only buy, very rarely sell, operable cameras.

Yesterday and today I saw and handled probably the largest collection of Graphic, Graflex and similar large format cameras [Georx Anschutz, Nettel, Plaubel Makina] in private hands. The pull on the wallet is at least on the same magnitude as handling Hasselblad [or Leica] equipment. I have been pondering which equipment I should use to start LF photography. I think that I have solved my first round quantry by arranging to buy a 4x5 Graphic Pacemaker and a 4x5 Graflex Model D.

Please see my signature line.
