    Camera Show in North Texas

    Upcoming camera show in Grapevine - Sept. 17 & 18. Although these are not what they used to be (curses to both eBay and digital) , they can still be interesting. Never know what you'll find.

    I have 3 (count'em 3) $1 off coupons. ($4 instead of $5)

    I usually go on Saturday (17th). Anybody want to meet me there? Sunday is not out of the question.

    Hrm... I wonder if I'd find anyone there willing to swap a speed graphic with side rangefinder and a working FP shutter for my recently CLAd crown graphic with top rangefinder? I'd like to eventually acquire an old shutterless portrait lens, and use the FP shutter with it. I expect it would be easier to hand-adjust the side rangefinder than make a custom cam for the top rangefinder.

    Either that or a Canon F1n and normal lens... much swapping go on at those things? I've actually never been to one. Been to a gun show. Pretty much the same expect for the merchandise?

    Kevin, would you be interested in a 3x4" speed graphic with working FP shutter? The film is a lot cheaper

    I'll go. What time are you planning on heading out there? I need some forewarning as I will have to take that Saturday off.

    Mike! You're dedicated to the craft!


    In view of the Mike's wife's birthday and Jeremy's employment, I don't have any trouble with Sunday. I have been know to go both days. Of course, Don (the guy who hosts these) used to have one in Mesquite - 10 minutes from my house! Grapevine is a little further.

    Anyway, it's a trade-off. Conventional "wisdom" is that the good stuff goes early, i.e., Saturday morning. BUT, the bargains are Sunday afternoon, since the dealers don't want to haul the stuff home.

    We still have a few weeks. We'll see. I'll bump the thread once in a while.

    Jeremy, I'm taking this tangent into E-Mail. Don't wanna derail the thread.

    David,

    I'm probably a go. Gotta nail down kidcare & such. Dianna's already committed to being chained to a computer for the morning doing an IT evolution at work.

    Any chance we can come to a concensus about a common meetup (coffee beforehand?) then an apug decending (decention? decension?) onto the camera show.

    Is there a URL you can point us to for the minutea of the event?

    Ahem ...

    No minutea, however.

    I think coffee/breakfast/brunch (whatever) beforehand would be a great idea! We'll see.
