    Murray, the funny thing is that a 19" artar isn't all that small, about 2 1/2" in diameter and about as long.

    Very interesting camera, but I'm far more curious about the story you gave the wife.

    For the life of me, I can't think of a single, credible explanation for bringing that thing home.

    Pandino,
    You mean "it was free, couldn't let a perfectly good (insert part here) go to waste!!".

    (nice Chief Illiniwick avatar, where'd you get that?)

    I used "I won it on ebay for $1" once, for a devere 1010 enlarger, 3 hour drive, wish I'd of brought a bigger truck, could of had a lifetime supply of raw chemicals, another enlarger, probably a cube van full. Sad thing was the guy described some of the other stuff (dumpster full) he'd thrown out the week before, made me ill to hear about several cases of unused 8x10 holders tossed, 8x10 copy cameras, the list went on and on, he even had digipics of it.

    This might be the reason I'm a bachelor!

    Seriously. I won't even consider marriage until I have all the cameras I want. Thankfully, I keep learning about new ones here and on the LF Forum . . .

    Might be time to re-open that thread about why cameras are better than wives/husbands again.

    It might be able to carry you to the photoshoot.
    And even learn some tricks and acrobatics and scare off the little brats.
    I was thinking something more like mounting it on a Caterpillar or a M1 Abrams.

    Hmmm, you have a point there Soeren.
    Take out the main gun of the tank, install the camera, use the loader crewmember to load the film holders with Erik as the captain and go to fight the War on Terror and show the goverment that photographers are on their side.
    Or just terrorize the malls and make an exhibition of the photos, which will make all photographers a real threat to be reckoned with.

    It would also make the perfect coffin for a photographer. Given the price coffins go for these days, you could make a LOT of money snapping these things up, mounting a few handles (http://www.leevalley.com/hardware/pa...,43659&p=41993) and marketing them on APUG.

    You could be the next Jim Galli of Photographer Caskets, creating a market where previously there was none. How better to bury someone with their favorite casket lens set?

    All I ask is a small fee for having developed the idea . . .
