    Why people leave cameras on open access shelves is beyond me. Almost every time they are jammed. Mirror is up, shutter won't fire, and self timer is engaged. I mean you have to play with all the buttons while mom and dad are shopping, right? :frown:

    Go back to the antique store. Push firmly on the self-timer lever in the clockwise direction. It will start moving with your persuasion and finally fire the shutter. Buy camera. GAS taken care of for a day or two. :-P

Am about to receive two N2000's and another N8008 from KEH, which are coming with a MB-20 for my F4s and some other stuff that I won.

    I've owned too many lenses to count. That, and a few motor drives and flash units.

    Why no F2S? I love the stylized +- indicators in the DP-2.

    And holy cow, man.

    As for my gear of 2012, I got an F3HP and I still haven't decided whether I like it or not. Other than that, I got a macro bellows and a slide copier. Boring. I'm at sort of at strange place right now, photographically and gear-wise; been feeling aimless and unmotivated. I did bid on a 15mm f/5.6 non-AI on ebay, but lost. I don't know what use I would possibly have for that lens, but it's been high on my wish list for a long time. I also want a PC 28mm f/4.

    :-) For the same reason why I don't own any more F3's. Didn't like the "+-". Much prefer the "+0-" of the F2SB/AS and FM/FM2 series cameras.

    That 15/5.6 QD-C lens is quite rare...

    Oh, did add another off-topic Nikon SLR body (hey, free camera), and am about to swap my F4s for my nineteenth F4s. Found one that's in better condition and newer.

    I walked into a gallery/workshop/digital&film non-profit place on Saturday and discovered they were having a rummage sale. It was pretty well picked over by time I got there, but there were two quite usable 5x7 film holders. Now to get my 5x7 back fitted to my whole plate camera . . . it never ends.

    I just wish the F3's LCD wasn't so damn small! The numbers are small, and the those plus and minus signs are half that. Makes it harder to use, as I have to look right at them to discern what the readout is telling me. Meanwhile, Sasquatch just disappeared back into the forest!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I'm pretty much fine on GAS since I've purchased my Konica Hexar. That's the last camera I really need for now. I'm in no rush to get anything else anymore, but there is still some cameras I wouldn't mind eventually getting. But if I don't, no big deal either. If the opportunity arises, then great, if not, I'm not going to lose sleep over it. But, anyways, here's a list of some cameras I wouldn't mind picking up:

    - Olympus Trip 35 or XA or Canonet QL17
    - Voigtlander Bessa (not sure which make) or Leica M6/M7 (yeah right) or Hexar RF
    - Nikon F
    - Nikkormat FTN
    - Nikon FE/FE2/FG/similar
    - Nikon S rangefinder
    - Yashica T4
    - Yashica Mat 124(g) or Rolleicord or maybe Ricoh Diacord
    - Mamiya Rb67 or Hasselblad 500c/m or similar
    - Fuji X100(s)
    - Ricoh GR1v
    - Ricoh GRDIV
    - Nikon D600 (yeah right)

    F4 #19 has arrived. Also kept a N8008 out of a Nikon accessories and camera grab box that I received from KEH.

    I finally gave in and picked up a Yashica T4 Super D which will be used on an upcoming road trip.

    This makes me feel really good about my small kit. It can do everything thing that I need it to do.

    I am on the side that hates to have gear just sitting around, I feel wasteful.

    I've lately been acquiring oddball P&S bridge cameras. Ricoh Mirai, Fujifilm Discovery 3000, Chinon Genesis III, Olympus IS-3, Olympus AZ-330...

    Somebody just shoot me.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.
