    I'm an offset printer. I make wagon wheels and buggy whips every time I step up to the Hamada. It's just a struggle to keep head above water now. Back in the 80's there were jobs everywhere, plucked practically out of thin air. Not any more.

    I guess that's why the store I visited near the flat iron a month or so ago was so barren. Last time I purchased something from
    them was a used canon vit off ebay, the counter was broken but customer service at calumet was great and refunded me a partial payment instead of hassling with a return.

    The staff should have known. The shops here have a life time of a butterfly - not just the photo ones.
    Our industrial estates are similar.
    The popular songs of the '30s depression have a whole new meaning.

    You know I thought something was up when last week I noticed 20+ units of Calumet 750ws strobes on sale at Roberts Camera on ebay. Considering the calumet strobes are rebranded bowens made strictly for calumet, I thought it was odd a different camera company would have such a large stock. Unless someone was going out of business, they range from beat up to fairly used, so I'm assuming they came from Calumet's rentals department. Pretty good prices for 750 monoblocs. If I didn't blow a few hundred last month on new film I'd jump on one of these.

    For reasons unknown, there are lots of people who want—or need—to believe that buggy whips are extinct.

    Just ask the horses. They know better...
