    Calling all ADD photogs for chaotic camera journey

    Ok, the plan is to get a list of names for a random excursion of some inexpensive cameras to take a chaotic journey to where ever.

    The ideal camera would be something with a fixed lens and cheap film like a Minolta Freedom camera with Walgreens brand film (colour or B&W), which I just happen to have. Get a list of names and addresses together and just pick a name at random.

    If you have a cheap camera and want to participate that would be good and we can keep it open to any and all comers for as long as there is interest. It would be a good idea that if the last person with the camera takes the final shot developed the film and posted it for all to see.

    good idea
    I saw one filme about Germany with very similar scenario as you idea. One man bought a cheap digital camera and make note on it - something like "just make photos of your city, your life ect. and leav it. When card is full - send it to ..". And the came had journey around Germany.
    So - idea is nice
    but what do you think about x-ray on postoffice?

    I wouldn't think that it is a major problem as it should have happened by now with all of the loaded cameras being shipped by other forum members and I think we would have heard about it by now.

    And what about all of the film which gets sent by post for processing? I also don't think it's a problem.

    sounds like fun !

    the round the world cameras work well, most of the time ...
    remember sometimes things get lost in the mail, or damaged in transit
    or the person it was mailed to, ummm forgot they had it for a few months ..

    Hey John, wanna get in on this?

    I would like to see if we could get enough people in on this that we could move these cameras around the world with out using the postal system, that would be cool. A sort of "across the fence" kind of thing.

    Hopefully, we will get enough people involved with enough cheap cameras and film that we can let anyone interested participate. I need to figure out how to organize all of those involved that it doesn't get to confusing. The point of this endeavor is to have a camera passed on to the next person who wants it either by mail or just a hand off meeting. there should be no rhyme or reason to this exercise but to see what we can create as a group. If someone expresses and interest in this feel free to contact that person if you have a camera that you want to donate. As of now I have about 3 cameras that I am planning on loading up and getting into the mix. I picked up two yesterday at Bibles for China for about $3.00. If someone wants me to pass the camera off to them I need your address. If you are close to Memphis TN, Little Rock AR or Jackson MS let me know as I travel to those cities on and almost daily basis. Lets have some fun with this.
