Well spotted, thanks. I'm not going to bring it up with them since they issue new ones every 3 months and we all know how quickly time likes to tick.
Domenico, just do it then.
Great effort. Well done. I noticed that the termination date of the letter is not quite correct...should it not read 2009? Not that important, since the idea is wonderful. k
This is just great.
Makes me want to make it as well.
I'm enjoying this as well. I would like to see our opinions as we progress through the Pulitzer Prize winning body of work.
Recently I got a:
Canon T50 w 1.8 lens for $17. Broken.
Hollywood Cadet tripod $5.
SLIK Universal U-102 tripod $6.
Mahogany tripod $2.
Tungsten lamp w 150watt bulb $1.
Canon Sureshot SD 500, no card w charger $10.
Epson Perfection 3200 scanner without film rack, charger or software for $15
Minolta Auto200X flash w case $4.
Promatic FTD 4000 flash $4 in box, corroded.
Pentax A3000 ready to go with batteries $14.
Minolta Freedom Dual compact 25cents.
Canon Shure Shot broken $3.
SV Kenlock 200 SQ tripod $6.
Pentax camera bag 25 cents.
Sears Auto 35 $4
And the piece de resistance, a Canon AF35ML w case for $10. One of the guys on this blog called the AF35ML a "future classic". It "has the fastest lens of any automatic compact camera ever". It has all the convenience of a Canon Sure Shot with the big lens of a Canonet. It is light and compact. I think the AF35ML gets put in the junker bins because they are dark and not as brilliant looking as the older cameras. I put normal batteries in and it functions well so far. The integral flash should make my life easier, because I'm getting tired of lugging around a lot of gear.
I almost bought a new DSLR yesterday. It took me about a day to figure out that it only had a lens the size of my Canon Sure Shot. I told the clerk, "I need at least a 1.7 lens." She replied, "A lens that size will cost you thousands." I said: "I've got a bunch of old cameras for less than $20 with even bigger lenses." Sometimes I don't know just what kind of consumer I really am.
I have always enjoyed your writing. Nice photograph of the kids, too.

To err is film. To really foul things up you need a computer based camera.
A camera user who claims to have never 'screwed-up', or to never having made a mistake is either a liar or has never actually depressed the shutter with film loaded IN the camera.
But of course, gents. Come on. I'm buyin'.
Chris... Thanks for the smile!
