Given that it is better to overexpose B&W than underexpose (those pesky shadow details everyone keeps going on about ) I wonder if HP5 might be a better bet - given that it is probably closer to 320 ASA in the aforementioned Real World)....
    OK, that's a convincing arguement ... does anyone else want to have a say in this? I haven't yet loaded the camera and I can always use the aforementioned FP4+ for other purposes so I don't mind going with HP5 if we have a general agreement to that effect.

    So, on the matter of HP5 vs FP4+ what say ye? Do we have an aye, a nay?

    Meanwhile, routing & shipping suggestions are welcome!

    Thanks,

    Hi all,

    Here is a suggested route:

    nsmith01tx -> Texas
    david b -> New Mexico
    Rich Long -> Colorado
    MenacingTourist -> Utah
    MattCarey -> California
    ggriffi -> Indiana
    Suzanne Revy -> Massachusetts
    jnanian -> Rhode Island
    bobfowler -> New Jersey
    sensanjay -> New Jersey
    gr82bart -> Toronto
    Bob F. -> West London, UK
    TPPhotog -> South Devon, UK
    Leon -> Kent, UK
    janvanhove -> Belgium
    rst -> Germany
    Ole -> Norway
    gbroadbridge -> Australia

    Notes:
    1) I assumed gr82bart's location as Toronto.
    2) I voulnteered to ship the camera overseas.
    3) I scanned the thread but didn't notice anybody volunteering to develop,
    so I looked at the geographic locations for the route.
    4) I can volunteer to develop the film, but it will have to be in a lab as I do
    not have a darkroom.

    Of course, suggestions are welcome to the above route/plan ....


    Regards,
    Sanjay

    Thanks Sanjay!
    You've definitely helped move things along, especially your offer to ship the camera overseas. I've PM'd gbroadbridge to see what he'd prefer to do. I think we may tweak your plan a bit as Bob F. has also offered to ship across borders.

    I've also thought about running this one backwards from round 1 and shipping it to Australia as a first step. One thought I had about that is that if some overzealous customs agent opened the camera then the shots done in the US afterwards (the majority) would still be ok.

    I do plan to tape a warning/plea across the film access button in back in hopes of avoiding that possibility.

    Thanks again,
    Nathan

    update and suggested route

    Since no one's objected, I guess I'll load the camera with HP5+ later today.

    I am going to ship the camera on Tuesday 4/26. We can accomodate any newcomers until then.

    Here's a tweaked version of Sanjay's suggested route. Let me know if this works for everyone.

    [FONT=Fixedsys]nsmith01tx ------- Austin, Texas
    david b ---------- New Mexico
    Rich Long -------- Colorado Springs, Colorado
    MenacingTourist –- Utah
    MattCarey -------- San Jose, California
    ggriffi ---------- Indiana
    Suzanne Revy ----- Massachusetts
    jnanian ---------- Rhode Island
    gr82bart --------- New Haven, Connecticut
    bobfowler -------- New Jersey
    sensanjay -------- New Jersey
    rst -------------- Germany
    Ole -------------- Norway
    janvanhove ------- Brussels, Belgium
    mikeg ------------ Shropshire, UK
    TPPhotog --------- South Devon, UK
    Leon ------------- Kent, UK
    Bob F. ----------- West London, UK
    gbroadbridge ----- Sydney, Australia[/FONT]

    All input is welcome.

    Thanks,
    Nathan

    Sounds good to me. I assume the camera will be shipped with the final routing and address list enclosed.
