    That "New Skin" will give your camera a real rad. look Bob. My experience with beautification took a slightly different approach and the results were , shall we say, unique.
    I picked up an Argus Brick on ebay for $1.00. Couldn,t resist the sales pitch "Its older than dirt". And it was!
    Got a fake gator skin purse from the local thrift store ($1.00) as my new cover and used the old leather as a template. Bit of cleaning, bit of glueing and VOILA". Brand new brick! Fun project that only cost me a few bucks.

    As I wrote to our friends in our end-of-2005 letter, "Last year and this we traveled relatively little. No trips abroad of any kind, let alone to collect fish. No excursions to the west coast. <snip> Many of our recent excursions have been to take pictures in the wilds of New Jersey. For those of you who know only the densely populated and very ugly northeastern corner of the state, there's more to New Jersey than garbage dumps, chemical plants, what passes for gentrification, and slums. The Pine Barrens, in particular, are a wonderful place to visit. Pat and I have never discussed whether not traveling far makes her feel deprived. It does me, a little, but there are worse punishments than having to learn our area better."

    I don't need to look at other peoples' pictures to know where I live. I don't even have to look at my own lousy pictures ...

    Cheers,

    Dan

    The exits stay where they are, the abrasion is infectious.

    Bob, I did my Yashica Electro GT in red lizard skin last year. I was looking at the red goat leather too. Looks great on a black camera body. Camera Leather's work is excellent, (I owe them a photo of the camera for their web site). I know you will enjoy the look and the CLA on the camera.

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
