Are we allowed to submit old shots from cameras we no longer own? Because if so I have a bunch...
No, the cameras still have to be in your possession for this contest. Can always use them for future contests.
thanks

That's a bummer. Discard my entries then. I don't have those cameras now.

Nice entries so far every one. Glad you like the contest twist. I am lucky to be exempt from this compettion. My point & shoots number in unixrevolution's range. Interested to see how many unixrevolution posts Bring it on. I asked for it.

Ivoire, you sold the Q? arghh. Can't imagine doing that.

My last 3 cameras have been some of the most hated around. Q, K-01(yellow), and the Sigma DP1Merrill. Like them all but can't imagine living without the Q or the Sigma. The Sigma never ceases to amaze with its image quality. It looks more like film than any digital I have ever shot. Makes my Can*n 5DII look bad at low ISO. But the Q is fast in comparison and has incredible battery life.
thanks

I found the EPL5 to be more to my liking for all around shooting (i have a evf for it). I'm mainly a daytime (sunny day) shooter and the lack of viewfinder was a bit of a hindrance. The amazing IQ of the Sigma and its reasonable price is the other reason for selling the Q to fund it. I will miss the Q's flexibility.

and whats on the dream list??? I'm contemplating getting the dp2 merrill



That's some line up!!! I suspect it will take days to post your images
And at my antique car club meeting, someone knew "I was into cameras" and gave me an old box brownie.

It has a patent date of 1916 and currently has a roll of Ilford PanF+ in it.

Hello ladies & gentlemen...

This is a great idea as a theme. Let's post my first pic:

Not fresh, and even more than 2 years old. I always thought there was something, say, almost feminine in the rear wing of a 911, like a kind of hip, which was perfectly tuned with the global fluidity of its design.
Pentax Optio P80.

Now that is one nice car, personally I'm more of a LDV/pickup truck, or as we call it over here, a "bakkie", kind of guy
I must also mention that I'm sure you could've done a better "paint over" job on that number plate

Oh yeah, I have to admit I did a quick & dirty job on the plate. I have the habit of always hiding them, especially when those pics are going online.

Exactly.

As my second (and final?) entry, also digging from my archives, an almost abandoned mansion in a remote part of a remote part... well, in the middle of nowhere :

Bart, how dare you be so dismissive of my humble abode?
