    Unplanned Cheap G.A.S

    Life is amazing.

    I'm now in the LF club.

    At my camera club meeting tonight I picked up a Calumet 4x5, with dark cloth, changing bag, 2 cable releases, 12-15 film holders, 50 sheets of Provia 100, and a Linhof Schneider-Kreuznach Technika Symmar 1:5,6/150 1:12/265.

    $100, hope I didn't get taken.

    Behind the lens board on the barrel it's marked 12/265. All the 12/265 markings are in green and the 5,6/150 stuff is in white.

    What have I really got?

    You got taken. It's no good. Send it to me and I'll give you $150 for it.

    Fare coverage on a 4x5 beats full coverage on 35mm right?

    I thought MF would be my step up from 35mm, silly me.

    Well off to bed to dream very big dreams.

    It's a convertible lens. Use the full lens and it's a 150. Take off the front [I think it's the front on the Symar] and it's the longer focal length.

    If the camera is in good shape just the camera is worth about what you paid. So all the other stuff is a bonus
