    I sense a gas attack. Okay Shawn and Dale have bought two of my unused lenses. Who else wants one? Partial trades of gelato machines accepted.

    We make ours using this method - http://www.cookingforengineers.com/r.../Basic-Granita

    I'd be happy to trade you my granita maker (aka a 9x13 baking pan and a fork) for one of your cameras though!

    Glad to return some favors Shawn. I don't get enough darkroom time, so I spend some of my time figuring out how to make it more efficient, like analyzing film development curves. I always enjoy looking at your work.

    Sept. 6,2009, Ohio-Cleveland Camera Collectors Show - Cleveland Richfield Quality Inn, 4742 Brecksville Rd. Richfield, OH. Just 1/4 mile south of the Rt 77, Rt 21, OH Turnpike Interchange- Open 10 AM- 4 PM.
    Wasn't that nice of them to schedule this during our event? Igor's Camera Exchange is probably the best known vendor at this event. It is a small show, but Lee, Lee's son David, Peter and I go quite often.

    I drove over to this event last minute this spring, when KEH was there. I picked up the Toyo 45AII (in great user condition!) I was using at Blue Hen last go round for $745 from a vendor. This is about half what they are going for used on FeePay. There were definitely some deals to be had.... Maybe it was bigger than normal with KEH there, I'm sure John could tell us, but if you knew what you were looking for there were some great deals on FILM equipment to be had....

    There is quite a variety there, but the show has gotten smaller over the last few years. I bought a Jobo CPP-2 on eBay. The dealer was in Indiana. When he found out where I lived, he said he was coming to the show and would deliver. I later bought several stainless trays from him. I have found a collapsible luggage cart, books, and met lots of interesting people. They are a riot. One dealer sells nothing but filters, tables of different types and sizes. One old man, old even to me, told me he had been selling there for 23 years. I have since noticed that none of the inventory changes. He just goes there to talk to his friends. There is a good breakfast restaurant across the street, not pretty, but good.

    I examined my first negatives with the 'new to me' Fuji 300 and the edge-to-edge evenness is excellent. That was what I was looking for (expecially after examining John's books by Michael and Paula.

    In the center not as sharp as the Symmar-S 210 I am comparing to, but that Symmar-S is a 5x7 lens, so it looses some resolution at the corners of an 8x10 frame.

    That fits with the resolution tests on the internet. It seems the other big 300mm plasmat lenses in the Copal 3 shutters are in the 45 LPM range (at working apertures) right with the Fuji. The advantage, of course, to these big lenses is the large image circle, allowing full movements.

    ....and putting the fuzzy corners (technical talk) out beyond the 313mm 8x10 image that we create. Now we just have to get out and create. Happy shooting with your (old to me) new lens.

    That said I was down in Peninsula yesterday morning where they had been kind enough to put the steeple back on the church and take down the scaffolding. They must have known my class at U Akron was just about to start.

    Thanks Lee. Those should be very helpful. The only thing they don’t convey is how steep and rugged the place is. When Peter and I first went there I could not enter from the parking lot with the baby jogger. Once Peter helped me get it over the first steep part I could move about slowly. Perhaps there is a topographical map somewhere that would clarify this. Please dress accordingly, especially walking shoes or boots for climbing in rocks.

    Secondly, it may have been an oddity, but this is the only place I have been stung. Dolly and I didn’t see what did it. I had an allergic reaction. If you have this problem I suggest and now carry antihistamine and cortezone cream. The nearest pharmacy was half an hour’s drive.

    Not too helpful on the scale of footsteps, but this topo section shows 10 foot contour intervals, and it doesn't help that our friendly forum software squashed it and put in into the inappropriate .jpg format rather than the uploaded .gif.
