    Steve (UK): Please make arrangements by PM with Rick A to send him the camera next.

    BTW - Rick says he wants to keep the camera for 6 months. I drove through Cameron County in Pennsylvania once, and think he just might need 6 months to find something to photograph.

    It IS out there. I grew up in Maryland and never heard of it. When I looked it up... I still never heard of it. When a trip to Williamsport is your idea of a once in a lifetime adventure, that's out there.

    Do y'all worship Chickens out there?

    Theres plenty to shoot here--just not photos. Actually, there are many great things to photograph here, just that everything is buried under snow and the temps are below zero for the next few days.
    Oh, and we don't worship chickens, we offer them up as sacrifices to the gods to keep film alive.

    Message sent.

    Hopefully, I can send it at the weekend.

    Our Post Office has some specific rules about posting batteries. Some types are are only allowed in original packing, others are o.k. if in a camera but not loose. It is very vague about alkaline. Do you know what is in the camera?

    I don't want to remove the batteries as it will then forget which frame it is on.

    I think I will have to use a simple description of 'vintage camera' and not worry too much!

    It's Lithium CR123. Maybe it's no need to be precise of what's in the box, don't you think ?

    Steve.
    I should have this camera manual somewhere, I can check if it lose the frame number when batt is removed, but maybe you can just let it in ?
    "Vintage camera" looks like too attractive, to me, maybe "used camera" or "worthless battered old camera"

    Regards,

    Raphael

    That's o.k. then. Lithium contained in equipment is allowed.

    I will take a printout of the rules to the Post Office.

    There are some very specific rules regarding lithium batteries being shipped aboard aircraft.

    One battery of that size, should not be a problem.

    Failure to disclose, can be a problem.
