    You cannot, however buy insurance on international items online. And you need the special clear plastic envolope for the customs form. You can order the envolopes from the usps. But I can never seem to find them when I need them.

    Many of the ones for sale online dont work well. And the QL17 is a real pain to fix.
    Ah, heres some nice pics of it.

    mx-450 monopod with walking stick top-knob and SLIK SBH-100DQ quick release ball head...25¢
    ...seems just fine to steady the camera when I find the shot, and me on long walks while looking for it...

    Bought a Minolta 100-200mm for $5.

    I just stopped at a thrift store on the way home from work and they had a Minolta 100-200mm/3.5 for $5.00. It is the Celtic brand so not the best of Minolta's lenses I hear. I haven't shot anything with it but it looks okay. They also had another camera there in a case but I don't need any more cameras and I didn't even look at what kind it was. I should stop in and see what kind it is at least. The zoom is my first zoom lense and although I have other lenses and really didn't need it, I just couldn't pass it up for $5. I suppose in its day it was a $200 lense, so why not? Ric.

    This past weekend at an antiques fair, two Pentax LX bodies, one 50mm f1.4 SMC-A, one 24-35mm SMC zoom and one 35 mm f2.0 SMC - £50 the lot.
    All because, as the vendor said, "No-one uses film any more."

    Wow!! That is a great score, you can pay for the lot by just selling the 50 1.4. I need to go shopping more!! Congrats!

    Nearly caught myself out - playing around with the two LX bodies last night it was obvious that although in auto mode the meters were indicating exposures (in the ambient room light) of, say, 1/4 second, the actual exposure when I pressed the shutter was closer to a second. However, as it was the same on both and yet the manual exposure indication was fine, I thought it worth a bit of a surf before worrying too much.

    The answer was obvious when I found it (no doubt many are ahead of me!). Because the LX measures the light falling on the film during the exposure, as soon as I pressed the shutter and the first blind opened the reading was being taken from the black surface of the pressure plate, not from either the grey unexposed emulsion of a film or from the grey front surface of the blind. Tonight's job is to load an unexposed film and see whether that makes a difference.

    The info I found on the web is that that scenario can make 2 to 3 stops difference, but no-one seems to be able to explain how the metering copes with different shades of emulsion.

    I found a working Olympus XA4 with A11 flash in the thrift store's junk 35mm bin. $1.50 plus tax.
