if there is room in the bunkhouse count me in too,
but i can't sacrifice any barnyard animals this time ...
Sile - to hedge our bets that the camera will make it, can we put out a call for a slightly better camera? I know technical perfection is not what we're striving for, but if it is the same SureShot we used for Round 6, I'd say it may not survive another trip around the world (and I'd prefer a slightly better lens, especially for color film).
I don't have anything cheap and good to offer, but I'd be willing to try to land a Nikon L35AF on ebay for this go around. Nice robust camera with a great lens.
I would offer my Olympus Stylus Epic, but it is slightly quirky with its metering.
Ok... we have a FINAL list...
5. Mr Banana
7. Rick A
14. John Nikon
18. Tim in San Aachen Jose
19. J Rollinger
22. polyglot (we may just take you up on that offer... keep an eye on the thread!)
That's our limit... we stop at 25.. so anyone after this line I am so sorry.. you missed the chance to be a part of this wonderfully exciting round..
Shawn I genuinely do not mind what camera goes around.. if you are willing and able to chase up an L35AF and everyone is happy to go with that then I'm more than happy to go with that.. If Polyglot is happy to provide the film then perhaps we can work something out?
I have Semeuse address for this round.. so if everyone could PM me their addresses over the next week, I can work out the best travelling arrangements for the camera. BUT... no one is allowed to move house or even go on vacation for longer than a predetermined period until we get this camera home...
For those of you new to the travelling camera concept.. from here on in it will take a month or two to get the final list and get our journey started..
Certify us all... we're doing it again.... :w00t:
Yep, quite happy to provide a roll or two. I have four of them sitting here, looking quite forlorn and they expire in only 11 months...
Sile - OK. Will try to get my hands on an L35AF within the next two weeks, and if not, we'll go with the SureShot. Looking forward to it!
Am I one of either "8. Matt" or "11. Matthew"?
And I would strongly suggest that we make it an absolute rule that no participant forwards the camera to the next person without first confirming, by pm or email, what the current address is for that next participant.
Popular APUG activity! List filled up quickly. If anyone drops out, I'd be thrilled to join (first timer). Perhaps The Banana & I can take candids of each other:-)
