    Excellent, I even have a few rolls of Fortepan left that I can use. But can someone give me some pointers on how to load a Zenith S so the film does not curl, tear and generally gum up the camera?

    Otherwise I have to dig out my Praktica LLC with the Pentacon Electric 50mm

    ElitaOne, it's that very gung ho word "Commie" that's odd but I'll accept it's very difficult to come up with a name and FSU isn't particularly meaningful either.

    But the word "Commie" was always used as a derogatory term during McCarthyism and the Vietnam & Cold War, and despite 2F2F's comments I rather think this comment sums up what I was alluding to very well:

    The sentiments behind your project/idea are fine.

    I think that these days too many people spend too much time looking for excuses to be 'offended'. I take no offense at being referred to as a 'Brit' even though I consider myself English. I take no offense at the frequent portrayal of 'Brits' as being snaggle-toothed upper-class twits, or being used as the 'bad guy' in every action film to be made in Hollywood or speaking with a Dick van Dyke accent.

    So FFS people, stop being so bloody oversensitive.

    Great idea for a camera day, should I use my Zorki, Zenit or Lomo LC-A?

    Will anybody be using Tasma, Svema or Orwo film?

    (wasn't there also a Romanian film manufacturer?)

    Taken to It's logical conclusion I have a 1936 Zeiss Contax, Are they going to hold a Nazi camera day on Hitlers birthday?.

    The next time I have anal gas, I'll express it at my own convenience, not at APUG

    I imagine my 50's Rolleicord was built by former Nazi party members, so I could crack that out if it makes you feel better

    No Chris, that's not allowed , if they allowed that the event would be oversubscribed.
