    If you have freezer space available, you should store film that won't be used any time soon in there. It's perfectly safe to freeze film and will help it's longevity. Just make sure it's well sealed in the original pack.

    Update:

    I won a Koni-Omega Rapid M. It's on it's way through the mail right now. I really hope it's in good working condition. I don't wanna have to pay for a CLA yet.

    I regret selling my first 4x5, a Graphic View II with a spring back. I only got $150 for it, and it held a good deal of sentimental value – in retrospect, that is. I didn't think much about it at the time.

    I regret selling my Koni-Omega Rapid M. That was several decades ago, and I still regret it more than any other camera I've ever sold. Enjoy yours, Bushpig, and good luck!

    Congratulations bushpig - hope you have as much fun with yours as I did with the two I just sold.

    In case you weren't aware, Mike Butkus has an instruction manual for the camera on his site, listed as "Koni-omega M".

    Thanks, Matt. I actually looked at the orphan cameras page, but couldn't find a manual for the Rapid M. I was almost sad. But then you saved the day!

    Also, I'm sad again. I don't know where my camera is. I had a tracking number from the seller and last night it came up as being delivered...in New York! I live in California! That's not even close!

    I'm hoping that I was just given the wrong number and it's almost here. Best case scenerio: it arrives tomorrow in excellent working order.

    I have a 120 back on the way too. The tracking number says that it'll be here soon. Very soon. Maybe tomorrow. I hope it doesn't beat the camera here...

    But I'd love if they both got here the same day!

    bushpog, postal tracking will tell you that the package has been delivered after you get it. Really, no joke.

    Enjoy the camera.

    Cheer up bushpig! Here's one right here! Maybe I don't know enough about this camera, but they seem to be common on the Bay. Isn't this what you were talking about?

    oh. Well I guess I should have read just a little further in the post, shouldn't I? Congrats bushpig. Hope you enjoy your new camera.

    Still trying to get my camera. The guy sent me a new tracking number today that said it was delivered on the 15th...250 miles away from where I live.

    I have no clue what's going on with this damn camera, but I'm getting sick of dealing with this. If he sends me one more tracking number that says it was delivered somewhere other than Bakersfield, CA, I'm getting a refund and leaving negative feedback. Assuming it shows up in working condition (as described), he's currently looking at neutral feedback if lucky.
