Spotmatic F, n'est-ce pas?!

NB: I have a SMC Tak 50/1.4 for it, just not in this image.

Musta is short of Mustafa, and he's undoubtedly related to Rashid ad-Din Sinan, who's believed to be related to Knight Templars, and here we go, the full circle: livE hociR is definitely a part of centuries-long conspiracy!!!1!

[this, perhaps, is my last post, but they're clever, so they won't do anything, because otherwise they'd prove their existence and their livE ways..]
Accidents can happen...
Musta=Black in Finnish, ie. Mustamarja is Black-berry.
And the un-named horror can not ...be...talked...about...

I should have trusted my gut on the silver body (Asahiflex has I think the only silver ESII on Earth), but I fell for the 'developed from the predecessor model' attractor and skipped the 'open aperture' clause.

It's that whole giving/getting thing I wrote about last Christmas.

And you have all those great gear swaps nearby where you get 1Euro Zenits and cool old rangefinders.

Today's TBT hocIR FB question: "Can you name this camera circa 1973? It featuring a new open aperture TTL light measuring system developed from the predecessor model. #TBT"



D'oooh ...
I am going to suggest that the hociR show its true face and post a Singlex TLS for next week's TBT.

Ah oui ... your X-mas period thing, I forgot about that ...

and yeah, you're right. I do have a lot of swaps that I make some great deals/trades at ... plus there's my thrift store, too. There's another expo/swap this Sunday (at Fussy, near Bourges) about a 3 hour drive away, but I'm a bit "burned out" on swaps after my two day craze at the Bièvres (Paris) expo/swap.

Sorry, really should not "wine" too much ... comes with too many years of being "in country" !!!

This is the surest way to avoid the livE hociR and keep the K-3 out of one's camera bag!

Because Racer's Condo won't fit in a cabover. There's no room for the waterbed.
There would be in this one.

I found out to not eat the fresh fruit or salad the hard way.
Hopefully it was not that awful e-coli stuff. Happens a lot with fresh food that has not been handled properly.

Are you doing better now?

{and remember, a K-3 is of no use here}

Yes, and that's most disturbing. If this thread starts drifting to actual photography related discussion it might just as well be closed.

And I'd rather have a 4-4-2 than a 44-2 (though I could make another reference to 44's using 2, but I won't. PF is a safe place.)
One of the dispatchers I work with has a name that may or may not be a good thing. Both his first and last names begin with the letter "D". As an inside joke some of us call him "Double D".

(The most stupid thing I've done, btw, was to drink the water in Ethiopia. Interesting parasites. Still suffer from the aftereffects more than 10 years later. And for the record, I wasn't aware that it was unsafe water until it was too late.)
There is a paarasite in my region (although it is found worldwide) called Giardia lamblia. Once you get it in your digestive tract you will be doomed to a prolonged bout of "explosive diarrhea".

I have been fortunate that in all my forays into the wilderness here I have yet to become afflicted with this parasite.

Dumb and dumber the next generation?? Yep Iowa is just as brilliant! they restricted much of what goes into meth. Now meth is imported from south of the border, with an increase in price and no drop in usage!! But if you accidently try to purchase one too many boxes of Sudafed, they will throw the book at you!!!
Crazy how our government fails at every attempt to deal with social problems.
