    Good to be from Denmark... :-)



    People from this contry seems to embrace the Dig"""l world with open arms.

    But then they seems to reject the analouge world in the process...

    Good for me!

    I just had three interesting encounters with friendly people...

    the first one came up here, and brought me an old 4x5 MPP wiew camera, with a nice Schneider lens, and three interesting small Zeiss Luminar lenses (for macro work) in shutter...

    a gift, he said.

    The second phoned me this afternoon.
    he has two Durst Laborator's (138) with a lot of lenses to go with it - a Plaubel 4x5 wiew camera, and a Hasselblad with several lenses....

    Not as a gift (as it comes from a museum, and museums can't by law give things away), but as a "loan" as long as I want....

    The third is a commercial photographer going Digi""l.
    I am not excately sure what he has, but he mentioned "some Sinar's and some Pentaxes among other stuff....

    My only problem here is, that I am running out of space to place my enlargers... and the Hasselblad is too fragile for my students to use..

    Still - I feel blessed.

    I have space! I will rent you some for £0.00 per month. That should cover just enough space to store a 4x5 enlarger. I will even include a free maintenance contract with regular checks to make sure it keeps working.

    the problem her is, that it is 13x18 (5x7) enlargers - huge and heavy, so shipping to england might be prohibitive....:rolleyes:

    Why! You could go on an early (beat the crowd to it) pre-Christmas shopping spree in London, dropping off the enlarger on your way (a slight detour, but why not? ).


    You lucky so and so...

    Durst 138. My dream enlarger. Gotta stop drooling.

    There are solutions to these sorts of problems... Someone once said that the gift is in the giving. Giving the gift of a gift would make it even better!

    That would be more than a slight detour! (but don't let that put you off).

    Wow! I'm not sure what part of Denmark you are in, but, I have visited Kopenhagen 5-6 times (while visiting my wife's family in Malmö) and it seems like I run into camera stores everywhere I turn. Maybe I was just the part I was in. I never have the opportunity to see them all but always find something to buy. Congrads on the gifts though, maybe next time I visit your country I will meet people so nice. LOL
