    One Gandolfi.. Two Gandolfi's.. three..

    Yes - I kind of have to admit it: I have the gene for collecting.

    I just got my 5th Gandolfi, and I am totally in love with it.

    I think it is similat to the one Ole has, bu tI am not totally sure.

    the latest is a black laquered 5x7 Gandolfi, with a 250mm Heliar and 4 extra front plates.

    I've been wanting a camera in this size for some time, as I can enlarge 13x18 cm films, but not 8x10.
    And because I'd like to go out more and use the camera in the nature without breaking my neck (not having a car...)

    in short, I now have

    half plate stereo Gandolfi
    Full plate Gandolfi
    5x7 Gandolfi traditional
    8x10 Gandolfi Traditional
    12x16 huge Gandolfi

    (I also must admit, that I would like the 4x5 version too...)

    collector?
    maybe a collector wannabe, but a happy one.

    So now its time for some Gandolfi socialism: I have none so youll send the latest on and the 250mm Heliar to me
    Con gratulations Emil. Im looking forward to see results from it and maybe see it life some day at Vrå. How's the Bergheil doing by the way?

    One of the curious byways of the English education system is the emphasis put on learning the proper collective nouns for groups of the same thing. An 'exultation' of larks, a 'bevy' of otters, a 'gaggle' of geese. Harold Macmillan once famously described a gathering of former prime ministers as a 'Lakh of principles'.

    So, what, I wonder, is the collective noun for Gandolfis?

    Good ones Sören :-)

    The best I could do was "a G.A.S. of Gandolfis".

    Wouldn't that just be "G"andolfi "A"quisition "S"yndrome?
    Offcource it also could be "Lack of Sense" but then again not when it comes to Emil
