    Philadelphia Antique/Vintage Camera Show

    All,
    I stopped at a camera shop in Chestnut Hill yesterday as they have a wide assortment of antique cameras, and I was trying to match-up my old Balda folder. The owner of the shop told me about an antique/vintage camera show this weekend, here are the details:

    'Photorama'
    Radisson Hotel - Trevose.
    2499 Old Lincoln Hwy
    Sunday March 5th, 10-3. $6 entrance fee.

    www.photorama.com

    I am going to attend. If anyone else plans on going, shoot me a PM and perhaps we can make lunch.

    Would love to join you Steve but my weekend is full. I have been to these before, in fact I bought my Hassy at one of these. Lots of good stuff.

    Hi Steve,

    I think I will try to come by just to see what is there. Give me a e-mail if you want to meet up.

    Warmly,
    Tsuyoshi

    Steve,

    I will be there, unfortunately as I have a church organist gig the earliest I'll be at the show is around 12:30. Happy to meet any APUG'ers who are around.

    I went, I saw, I left.

    Practically nothing there appealed to me. The usual few vendors but a few more buyers or lookers than at the last several shows.

    I came away with a lens cap, a strap for the N8008S I expect KEH to replace (taking longer than I want, grrr!), and a small semi-treasure in the form of a 203/7.7 Kodak Anastigmat in barrel. S/n ECxxx, so made in 1941. Slightly odd, the front cell is threaded externally for reverse mounting. Glass not perfect, but only $10.

    I hope the other people who attended came away happier than I did.

    Dan,
    I agree - I wish I hadn't drove all the way up there. I went with the hopes of finding some old leaf shutters, some barrel lenses, and maybe a darkroom timer. All I saw was old canon/nikon/minolta 35mm stuff. Damn near no darkroom items at all. The couple of timers that were there, the asking prices were close to insane ($55 for an old bessler).
    I left with the sense that people need to use soap when (if ?) they shower, and what I thought was a bargin 150mm Schneider enlarging lens. It looked great indoors, but upon going outside I found it to have either fungus, or element separation in the front. Anyone up for a game of hockey ?

    Thing is, Steve, if we don't look we can be sure we won't find. And I did find a little.

    Better luck next time, and if no luck chalk it up to entertainment,

    Dan

    Hi,

    I did find an Ambrotype of a beautiful young lady in a excellent condition! I don't think it was a great deal or anything, but it is in a really good condition and I like it very much.

    I also bought a Kodak publication "Conservation of Photographs" for $9 which was a pretty good deal to me.

    I could not find a flange for Ilex #5 though. I will go next time as well.

    Warmly,
    Tsuyoshi
