Yes sometimes I am a snob. Actually no, but then, maybe.
I have 2 SLR, the first one I bought from a friend. To get started. Then I saved some and took up a loan which I paid off for four years to buy the camera I wanted. That was round about 1996.
For years I have wanted another on, but it being rather expensive, I will have to wait or never have it. Donations are welcome.
If I buy a 35mm camera I want it to be new. Virgin like.
With large format well the stuff I bought was used. I have no desire to own many cameras, I just want the one I want nothing else.
The next thing I want is an Aston Martin DB9 and a Lange und Söhne watch.
