    Fantastic guy!!!!

    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....)

    Funny, it's the Hexar that appeals to me
    Jim MacKenzie - Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    Wow, noacronym. I was going to beg for it but you need it way worse than I do...
    “You seek escape from pain. We seek the achievement of happiness. You exist for the sake of avoiding punishment. We exist for the sake of earning rewards. Threats will not make us function; fear is not our incentive. It is not death that we wish to avoid, but life that we wish to live.” - John Galt
