I am interested in a general get together of any format, basically if you shoot film of any description, be there.
The LF thing was a different meeting, really leaning more towards an information exchange between those that have LF equipment and those who don't, but were or are thinking about doing it.
As for 35mm being dead, not by the proverbial long shot. My reading of the market place is 135 format rules supreme, followed a fair way back by 120 format, then way, way back is LF 4x5" and near the bottom of the pit is 8x10".
The rest of the cut sheet film formats, are sitting on the bottom.
May God Save the Queen,
for nobody will save the 120, 6x7 or LF.
(with apologies to Gough Whitlam...)
Relax, 135mm aint going no place and will be here for a long time yet.
Okay, how are people placed for Saturday 23rd May, somewhere around the CBD, meet somewhere obvious, like under the clocks (at Flinders Street Station). If there is enough interest for that day, say late morning onwards, then we'll lock it in.

Generally speaking LF requires a minimal amount of walking around, not always though. Plus you usually require tripods, which without a valid permit, are illegal in Melbourne.
A "valid permit" for a tripod?? I never knew that. Certainly I was oblivious to it beavering away Queen Victoria statue in the Gardens on St Kilda Road.
Am I missing something? When was this bylaw enacted? Under the reign of Cr. John So & So?? I'd like to learn some background info.
