That may be an understatement.

    Depending on the number of people participating, there could be multiple cameras. People from each camera team could post when they'd forwarded the camera on. The thrill of competition or the shame of public opprobrium could become an incentive to slackers to take a picture, forward the camera, and post their pagan chicken recipe.

    Who does the developing and/or printing when it's all over? How/where are the images displayed?

    We have 23 participants in 8 countries for Round 9 so far (that's if you consider Canada a country).

    NICE TURNOUT!!

    Let's continue with everyone taking a couple of frames each. This means we going to have to send out two cameras again.

    I have both cameras ready, loaded with Tri-X. Let's try to launch next week; we are figuring out the logistics/geographic arrangement right now.

    To All:

    1 or 2 Cameras for Round 9?


    Can we briefly debate the pros and cons about sending out two cameras? Thinking about the difficulties of managing two cameras, and also the spirit of the project, I thought perhaps one camera might be the way to go.

    But since we've already established a two-camera precedent, I'd like to ask for everyone's input about sending out two cameras again. Remember there are 23 participants right now.

    If we use two cameras:

    PROS: Better chance we get at least one camera back; everyone can take two shots
    CONS: The "Let's All Shoot 1 Camera" meaning is diluted somewhat; will likely take a longer for one camera to traverse the globe than two; higher odds of losing one camera than both (Round 7 notwithstanding).

    What do y'all think?

    I love the dynamic of two cameras, the (un)spoken competition of chasing them around the globe. There is a feeling of "us vs them", but the total comradery is wonderful. "Double your pleasure, double your fun--send two cameras instead of just one"!!!!!!!!!

    Two cameras works for me. I love the confusion and hysteria that arises... now was I 8.1 or 8.2???

    I don't like numbers. Lets give the cameras names this time!

    Steve, you mean like, name one 'Chicken' and the other one 'Egg'? Then we can see which one comes first.

    I like one camera. The camaraderie is certainly fun but, in the end, less is more. We can view one roll of film rather than two and each image becomes a little more noteworthy.

    Okay, but since there are 23 of us, I get two shots and you get only one!

    Even though it does change the spirit somewhat, I also like the two cameras. And we are (within our repective groups) shooting one camera -- and if there are only 12 of us in each group, in theory we could take 3 shots each!
