    I like that smaller list, the camera should move much quicker. The only thing others need to be aware of, I will be in Australia from October 2nd through 29th. Hopefully, it will move quickly enough that it won't be a problem.

    I got delayed today - we stopped by some friends for a "quick cup of coffee". Fim is loaded, but not advanced to frame 1. It will ship tomorrow.

    I suggest the first recipient (wiseowl / Martin) advances to frame 1 (second window), exposes, and advances to next frame. Subsequent users expose and advance only.

    Shutter has been checked, and is acceptable at all speeds, 1s to 1/250s (good old rimset Compur). The lens, a Voigtar 11cm f:4.5, is capable of very sharp pictures at f:11 and smaller, or nice portrait "softness" at full opening. The enclosed cable release has a locking screw, if anyone wants to do a l-o-n-g exposure.
    Film is APX 100. It will be developed in Rodinal 1:50 with intermittent agitation, which should ensure that full speed is retained without causing excessive grain or edge effects (which we don't really need, on 6x9cm). Enlarger is a Durst 138S using a Rodagon 150mm lens and the recommended condensers (no, I won't send the enlarger around - this is just information for those who like to know everything. I have no idea yet what paper I'll use - Ilford MG IV RC for first proofs; then I'll dig into the big stack of oddments for final prints.

    Say, Ole, Any chance of putting together a series of prints for each participant? I wouldn't mind paying a few Euros for one...

    That could be done, I guess.

    There will only be (at most) 8 prints to make, and I've just confirmed that my old Ross Resolux 11cm enlarger lens works just great with 6x9 negatives.

    Ole,

    I received the parcel today, the box has suffered a little but the camera appears sound.
    Will shoot something over the weekend and then pass it on.

    Can I confirm that the distance scale on the lens is in Meters?

    Cheers

    I have read it as meters, and gotten sharp photos even down to below 2m distance. So I believe that can be confirmed!
