I have a Pentax SMC-M 50 1.7 that is in very good condition outwardly, but is choked by fungus. The fungus has spread rather quickly and I want it gone before it spreads to my good lenses. All attempts by me to disassemble it have failed, as has leaving it sitting in a window. At first it made good images, but now the negatives look like wedding shots from the 80's; smeared vaseline over the UV filter.
Both lenses are AS-IS, I am not responsible if they give you a fungal infection or if you notice a missing screw when you take it apart, as you will if you disassemble the 50 1.7.
They are free to anyone who would like them, I would just ask $5 or so to cover shipping to where it needs to go. I'd rather only ship to CONUS but if you insist I will ship overseas, but I will have to charge shipping if I do so. I'll do both together unless you really just want one or the other. Please PM me for details.
This has been given away. I can't believe it either.
Agfa MCP312 RC Semi-Matt variable contrast 8x10 paper 33 sheets
I discovered Agfa paper right as it was being discontinued several years ago, and bought random bunches on eBay that had been stored dubiously. I tried some recently, and like other batches Iíve had, itís slightly fogged. Even though I have some benzo, honestly I canít be bothered wrestling with the inconsistency when Iíve got a lot of Ilford paper.
I thought that someone might want to play around or experiment.
33 sheets (the bonus 10 sheet pack was never opened) for the cost of shipping from zip code 19107 in Philadelphia. Send me a PM.
correction. It is the blue model. I an partially colour blind & have trouble distinguishing with blue and green colours. My buds all say it is blue so I'll go by their description. One of the reasons I go for b&w & shades of grey in film and prints.

Partial bulk roll of Plus-X. Older than some of the folks here, Dec. 1972.
Picked it up at a Goodwill store some months ago. It looks like the can is sealed with the original 1972 tape and no sign of it being opened since.
A couple $$ to APUG & I'll cover the postage.
Wow.... No body wants a FREE Beseler 23 CII in the greater Vancouver area? Maybe THAT is why I got it for so little. I can hear the bag pipes airing up for the funeral... It is not just an enlarger that you are ignoring it is the whole idea of FILM and the process it takes to make a wonderful picture. Has that digital whore taken over everyone's mind with the seduction of pixel prints? How can you sleep @ night considering everything is taken over by zeros and ones ? This enlarger has helped me through many a dark time with pictures of people laughing and having fun. As well as a few sad pictures too but it never let me down. Done with my sermon carry on....

It took me like a month to find someone here to take my c700, and I live in a pretty big city.
I was reminded this week that I prefer the darkroom way more than the digital processes after having to do a ton of edits in Lightroom and ps for an event I shot last week. I lament as well for the group of shooters today that only take the process of analog photography only halfway. There is much beauty and skill about an optical print. Hell I print my students digital work on a 44 inch wide beast, and it does not compare to a well crafted silver gelatin print.
