Thanks for your patience! Here's an update:
In my never-ending stupidity, I almost sent out a camera with an awful light light leak. This would have amused no-one (except, perhaps, Mr. Nanian ).
So after shooting two rolls last week to confirm that both cameras were okay, one of them had to be tossed, and a suitable replacement has been found. And that meant testing the replacement also. So both cameras for this round are now confirmed working and leak-free.
Finally - if you are one of the two people on the list who have not yet sent me your address, we are going to send you to the back of the line for now. More on this later.
Going to mail these cameras out on Monday. More on these cameras in the official Camera 9 post.
