OK, now posted at LF forum too (http://www.largeformatphotography.in...ad.php?t=49441).
Mick, the Vageeswaris are the Indian built panoramics I talked about. I'll probably bring the 8.5 x 15 since that has had the lensboard conversion and I can pop a lens on it and we can look at the GG image even if I can't take a photo yet.

If you get there early and the weather is fine there would be plenty of photo oportunities with some of the expected social rowing off the landing.
See you all there.

Don't forget, 14.00 that's 2.00pm.
I'm a rough chance of turning up, to learn from you LF masters.
You folks have fun down there today. I wish I was closer so that I could make the trip down to check out the big kits.
Up here in Brisbane, I've not yet found many film enthusiasts to hang out with.

Well that was a lot of fun - thanks again for organising the hall Andy, and thanks everybody else for bringing along your treasures!!
Here's a scan of the group shot Christine made with the Galvin 6x9 on ancient Polaroid pack film - it's starting to go a bit blue, and the textured paper doesn't scan the best, but you can see us and a few cameras....!!
Greetings all, I really enjoyed myself this afternoon, sorry time was short as I did not see all of the gear that was on show.

missed this whole thread - I'm working 80hr weeks at the mo' (Jersey Boys at the Princess)
I'm bringing over my 11x14" Sinar conversion from Auckland one of these days ...
Cleared the bowel problem, working on the consonants...
Left to right on the old Polaroid pearl stock, Old Biker Pete, Barry B, Mick Fagan, SMBooth, Andy C (OxleyRoad), Marc (holding a pristine looking and brand new toy, the Wista wooden folder), Mike (Wyno) from Geelong and Paul. Not forgetting Christine, who actually took the picture.
Some very interesting equipment was brought along, especially the Vageeswaris 8½” x 15” which is a bit of a beast to put it mildly. I now know just what a Wisner Technical Field camera looks like and Marc has a shed load of cameras that will be for sale in the not too distant future.
There were some interesting lenses being put on different cameras to just see what the view is, plus there were some really interesting titbits of gear, I also got to see and feel a Berlebach tripod in the flesh.
Good to see Kevin Caulfield call in with one of his sons in tow, Kevin is not yet a LF camera owner, but with a modest outlay it is possible he may in the future be one.
All in all a very satisfying afternoon, small number, but interesting information being bandied about all of the time.
I'm in Melbourne between 3-6th July and therefore will miss it by just a few days
Wishing you all a wonderful time!
