Where ever you are, there you be.
The one I posted arrived at Jake's address twenty days ago but he hasn't posted anything here since then.

And Ralph sent me a PM on February 12th confirming that he still had the camera, but was going to send it to me that week.
Time to tell Sile to get the goon squads ready?
Have we lost both cameras simultaneously, again? Gee, I took some outstanding shots, too...
Right now in Spain they're holding the Running of the Bulls,
followed by the Soiling of the Pants, and the Burying of the Idiots.
I'll talk to Ralph tom'w. Suspect I'll be running into him at the Camera Clinic.

I'm available for goon work. Be warned though. Part of my compensation package will include another exposure on each of the cameras, but I have to hold on to them for a month first.

Anybody have an Italian connections here?? Sicilian perhaps..... A Father, Uncle, Cousin... Godfather even??
If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?
The ONLY thing I have to say about 'Camera 8' is this: why was the Fuji Single 8 system so marginalized? It had superior film (tough estar-like base) and required no turnover after 25 feet (until SUPER 8 came along).
For that matter, why was the Pathe 9.5 mm system so 'killed to death even'? THAT format was truly a marvel with, I believe, more than TWICE the footprint because the sprocket holes were BETWEEN the frames. Why does common sense always lose out? - David Lyga
David - I tried to understand what you wrote. I really did. Then I pretended to understand what you wrote, and still didn't get it.
Sounds interesting (it really does), but why have the two Camera 8 cameras invoked the systems you mention? I feel like I should understand this, but I've had my head in the sand so long now.
Maybe David wants to turn the adventures of our various travelling cameras into a movie?
Box office success?
Who will fight for a slice of the royalty "pie"?
