    It is not really about the money. Even if I was rich I would still have to convince Bestbeloved that there could possibly be any point in another camera. If I managed that, it would be a 10x8 field camera and a nice person to teach me how to use it.

    I back this idea hard!

    I'd pay film manufactorers to start making a lot of dead film. EIR/Aerochrome, Kodachrome, Polaroid 55, you name it.
    I'd also get myself a 6x17 and a 20x24 camera, possibly the polaroid one. Or maybe one thats suitable for film too. Imagine looking at 20x24 Aerochromes or Kodachromes. Darnit.
    I would also get myself a huge uv exposure unit, so i could make enormous alt. prints.

    I'd buy a studio building - nothing huge, just maybe 2000 sq ft with 15' ceilings. I lost my last studio to a greedy landlord who wanted to raze the building to make offices/condos/retail space.

    If money was no object ?

    Travel, collect and buy historic and famous original prints to display in my own museum, maybe setup a lobbying organization and fund to promote analog photography in more schools and to offer grants to new artists and photographers.

    I'm happy with what I have, because I learned the hard way many years ago that photography Isn't a problem that can be solved by throwing money at it

    If money was NO option, I'd re-invent pol 665!!!

    For a little less I'd buy an OLD Rolls and make it into a moving darkroom... would go SO nicely with my Gandolfi's...

    For even less I'd buy the huge Voigtländer Petzval lens for sale now on the bay ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/121063046400...84.m1423.l2649 ) - and some other great lenses I don't have....

    Or just quit my job and make images (again)
