Congratulations! I am equally impressed by your will power. Waiting a couple of days most certainly would elude me. More likely for me would be ruining several sheets of film trying to figure the camera out on the fly! I hope you share some of the pictures when you are up and running.
My thoughts, exactly!
Congratulations, Diane! Enjoy your new camera, and share some pics of and from the camera.
5x12" sounds like a great format - kind of like a super-long 5x7"
And it's half of a 10x12", the closest inch-equivalent to the 24x30cm camera I have learned to love even if I have only taken one picture with it (and that's when I found all the light leaks). I'll see if the bottom half of the negative is usable, so I can get an idea of what you format is like!
What lenses have you got/are you planning to get for using with the new camera?
Are you one of those scary persons who read the manual before starting to fiddle around with your new shiny toy! :o
just a little envious -- MW
Of course! But I have a dentist appt. today and it's supposed to rain this afternoon. I will practice opening and closing the camera to get a better feel for the process in the meantime. I plan to get some lenses onto lens boards and play with it inside too.
