Yeah, it was nice and fun. Most everyone was pretty cool and laid back.
What a huge choice. I'd be like a kid in a candy store.

Went up to Paris last weekend to maybe the biggest swap in France ... (Sorry aurele, I should have contacted you but decided to go at the last minute)

Here's a few random snaps and I picked up some goodies to be "shown off" later ... J










Is that a whole box of Kiev rangefinders I see?! Man...

Yep ... think so. There were tons of them about ... wish that I had taken a snap of a Russian/Ukranian stand. Stuff in stands, in boxes/crates on the ground and on a grassy incline, individual sellers would lay out a tarp and spread their gear upon it. A real shmorgishborg!

Among other many things, I was was looking for a (dead) Werra 3 or 4 (for the mount, for a Franken-lens project), but only found the first versions. Also was hunting a Yashica 635 with kit. Missed two at a stand by an hour or so ... was asking about with the appropriate vendors. No luck elsewhere ... ... maybe another day.

Gee, I am guessing that someone did not pay up ... because it's back on the block at BHF !

(eBay was so kind as to send me a message that I had another chance to win this lens )

Well ... it sold again at British Heart Foundation. Still broken and this time for only 980.00 ... wonder if this purchaser will pay up?

Kodak Medalist & Medalist II

This is my friend Bob's 1944 Kodak Medalist, next to my 1947 Kodak Medalist II.
Both are fully functional, and I should have scans later today from the test roll I ran through Bob's Medalist.

Nice machines. What a pity Kodak gave up on quality like this for mass market plastic. All they seemed interested in was selling film by any means. This shortsightedness let their lead in the digital age slip away as well.

Kodak continued to make high quality professional products for almost another 20 years alongside their consumer cameras. That being said, for every Retina or Medalist sold, thousands of Brownies made their way into the hands of budding photogs.
