My wife has instructed me to write it was her, but at the time when were married in the mid 1960s a marriage licence cost the same as a dog licence, I think I made The right choice in this case, she was much quicker to house train.
Olympus 35RC, 35RD and 35SP
Contax IIIa (dead)
Ricoh 500, 500G
Yashica GS, GSN
Walz Envoy 35, M35
7 Canonet 17 GIIIs (which will hopefully make 5 working cameras)
...and about a dozen other less interesting cameras for $100
For me, the Olympus cameras were the big find. I'd been looking for the RD and RC... the SP was a nice bonus. most of the other cameras I'll probably clean up, shoot a roll or two to see what they can do and sell (hopefully mostly friends). I've heard good things about the Walz Envoy but don't know if I can deal with the coupled aperture/shutter speed.
Hopefully that will cover the cost of a CLA for the RD and SP. I can't bring myself to work on those cameras.
But my best deal; a Contax II in a trade for ten Marlboro Lights.
Good heavens, are you serious??
I picked up a Contax RX for $150. A friend told me to buy it ASAP (I didn't know much about Contax at the time.) Nice camera, works perfectly.
Picked up a "junk" RTS for $25. The LEDs won't light up above 1/15, but everything else works perfectly.
I recently received a DeVere 54 enlarger from someone on another forum. I paid £30 towards the £43 it actually cost to post it and gave thye other person som Mamiya TLR bits and pieces I had in a drawer. And I have also just received a Schneider Componon 150mm lens for it from an APUG member for just the postage cost.
