    ok... I know Cleveland is pretty close to Point Pelee as the crow flies, but how the hell did you get into my closet?

    You have to wonder how the camera handles with all the pimping it's had.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Nasty, I have seen some well done gold cameras this is not one of them.
    One of the stores that I worked for had a 'gold collection', long story (remember before the days of mobile phones), the gold RB or RZ (?) got stolen, we phoned the bosses office only to be told he was at one of the other stores. The next thing we know he is walking through the door, pleased as punch because he has just bought another gold RB, cash - very cheep, it was his own property he had just bought from the thief !
    Regards.

    If you want a joke, and on target to boot, consider the Rolleiflex Aurum.
    Or how about a "limited edition FX .. #1 of 100"

    Close to $5K for a fancy Rollei. Serial No.1. It probably will end up in a safe deposit box in Asia. I'd probably do something silly like use it.

    For all practical purposes, they've taken Kodak away.

    It's not a GX, obviously.
    It's a 2.8C a.k.a. K7C. Early part of the 1950s.

    I see it's from H.K, It's probably from the same guy I bought a Rolex watch from Hong Kong in 1961 when I was in the military, it looked perfect and kept good time, but when I got it back to U.K it stopped,and when I took it to a watchmaker he showed me inside the watch and all the mechanism was made out of bamboo, he said the difference in humidity had caused the bamboo to expand and stop it, however he wanted to buy it from me to show his watchmaker friends because he'd never seen anything like it

    The wardrobe is referred to as a "full Chicago" worn by used car salesmen world wide in the 60-70's. Less common today but can be found a small dealerships throughout the US. Source: Car Talk w/Click & Clack, the tappet brothers via NPR.
