    The cameras aren't that old. Is Canon foam that bad? I have a 1989 Nikon N8008s that has fine foam. Works like a top.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    the elan 7n is the same as the 30 or 33 and will not be damaged by the camera.

    A quick google search usually turns up if your camera has the IR frame counter that seems to cause the concern. My EOS 1 doesnt have it, but instead some clunky loud mechanical winding mechanism - I choose to find it cute, really.
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.
