BUT having someone actually do what they say they are going to do is another matter.

    On another note, I bought a Canon EOS 2000 with an 28-80 lens (auto focus doe not work) for ten bucks and would be wiling to donate for the next round.
    The answer to you very good question is, emphatically - yes. This rule has been in effect for the last several rounds at least, and in every case on this specific round, contact was made and the camera was only sent out when the next person affirmatively confirmed their continued interest in the project.

    We'll keep our hopes up that the camera (and Nicholai) resurface soon.

    Regards,

    Shawn

    Shawn, maybe you should put Nicholai's email out here in public so we can all send him a message as to how disappointed we are in him for holding on to the Oly. I doubt very much sending him a PM through Apug will do any good. I took the time to review both the threads concerning this round, and find it strange he only posted once in the getting ready thread and no posts in this one. According to the logs, he hasn't posted since may of 2013. If things don't get moving soon, I will send my Pentax IQZoom to the next person in line and we can resume rotation through the list.

    Nicholai has an email address in his APUG "signature": nicholainissen@gmail.com

    His profile info indicates that his last activity was in August of 2013.

    I hope he is okay - and that the camera moves on.

    Thank you Matt, by the time I finished reading all the pages I was plenty bleary eyed, and frustrated. I have sent Nicholai an email, and ask everyone else involved in this round to follow suit. Please keep it polite.

    And Nicholai responded by apologizing and promising to ship the camera "tomorrow if possible".

    Here is hoping!

    If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?

    Maybe if you promise to send Nicholai something in return- say, something with polka dots?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.
