    what is Photorama? do we have any details on that?

    thanks!

    I meant to say, "I have the world's greatest deal - a monorail and Speed Graphic that (may have been) used by Ansel Adams himself! Guaranteed to better pictures or your money back! (money back guarantee only valid in southern Guam) Supplies are limited, act now!"

    From a few pages back:
    As added incentive, there is a camera show (used gear sales and swap) at the Quality Inn at Exit 173 of the turnpike, I-80, on Sunday the 19th from 10am to 3pm. That's the exit folks used for John's place. The show is shrinking lately, but bargains can still be had. http://cleveland.craigslist.org/pho/863003427.html
    My schedule for the weekend will be determined by some combination of the score of a high school soccer game on Thursday evening, two doctors appointment outcomes today and Friday, the time it takes to get over a cold, and likely a half dozen other unforeseen factors. Put me down as Heisenberg^256. I'll be somewhere, but it will be very hard to tell where or when.

    Lee

    P.S. Two unforeseen factors added in the two hours since I first posted this. Can I arrange for someone to kidnap me and my cameras and film on Thurs evening and release me Sunday evening? Will exchange technical advice and camera loans for kidnapping. PM me.

    Done. Start by explaining Heisenberg^256 and tell me where to pick you up. We will discuss it over Indian Dinner.

    APUG wouldn't let me post shortly after you asked. Seeing your later post about funds, an answer may not be needed. For anyone else.

    “Photorama USA, Everything Photographic Show, new and used professional and digital cameras.” I like that last wording, professional vs digital.

    This is a swap meet run every two months at the Quality Inn in Richfield, just south of the turnpike exit for Rt 77 and I 80. Lee & one son, Peter and I have been going for years. Attendance has fallen off both on the sales and buying end. The current economy may make it very slow, just a guess. That might effect how much was shown or how low sellers will go who do show. $6 entrance, $2 student. I am still a student. 10:00 AM to 3 PM Sunday. Lee & I get there when it opens. Peter has softer priorities.

    I have found a lot of photo books, Jobo, luggage cart, stainless trays. I think Lee has bought some lenses and filters there, but would prefer he comment. The whole show is run by Igor Reznik of Igor’s Camera Exchange. He usually has nice high end stuff and prices to match.

    Things happen fast there. One time I said to Igor, “Oh I wish I had known that you had a 250mm Wide Field Ektar. I bought one on eBay this week and would have preferred to buy it from you”. He said, “Don’t feel badly. I took it on trade ten minutes ago”.

    I was planning on arriving Sunday at John's in the AM (not sure about Saturday yet). Then off to the show as I have something to pick up from Igor. From there, I was planning on going either to Nelson Ledges or to Quarry Rock Park (both favorites of mine). These locations are East of where John is by about 30-40 minutes, but very close to where I live. Perhaps this will work for people going East to return home?

    Boy, come to my party and steal my guests. Hrumph! And these are my friends.
