    wayne from melbourne

    Evening all. Another Aussie on the list..... cameras - all Minolta, manual, auto, 6x6 (and digital too for that matter <G>) plus a Fuji GA645 and a Mamiya M645 1000S. Always on the lookout for some nice, clean Rokkor glass to add to my (very) modest collection. not much more to add, i'm afraid

    best wishes

    wayne

    ....and the very best of luck to all those flood affected novocastrians too, my thoughts are with you

    Hi Wayne, welcome to a fellow M645 1000s owner AND Melburnian!

    Agreed with the sentiments - if it's not droughts it's flooding rains...

    Cheerio, Marc

    Hi Wayne,

    Welcome from Hawaii. I think you will enjoy this site, it is a great place to be.

    I hope you are getting some rain down there - the flood part doesn't sound good though. I'll be in Victoria in about 3 months, and would love to see it green once again.

    Now thats not melba

    From my travels through your town it can be four seasons in the same day at times.

    Good to see another Minolta lurker. I don't believe that the finest gear requires the newest camera, nor a company with the biggest ad budget when the unit was originally made.

    I am with Minolta because back when I was 17 my science teacher arranged a good package deal that about 5 of us bought in on for an x700 rig. That one lasted me til it got a soaker last year. There have also been a few SRT's and others along the years. Right now I am sold down to a SRT101 that I run B&W through, and a x570 that replaced the dead 700 and could still talk to the motor drive and dedicated flash units. Then there is my medium format Mamiya gear, and the wee rangefinder XA, and the junk and not so junk cameras that are fun too.

    Is it just me, or do others find that once someone knows that you still shoot film, they give you their old camera?

    I too have followed the drought situation. I lived in brizzie for almost 4 years. I hate to think of the dust that is blowing in parts of the country at present. I wish the continent all the best to fill up the Darling Murray basin and all the other parched watersheds.
