I am desperately attempting to decline getting a Graflex 4x5 Pacemaker Speed Graphic. With shipping it would be under $300 with a 135mm. I would have to get holders to fit graflock also. I have no experience with this size of camera, but I would like to shoot paper negs.
I dunno if I can continue to resist much longer.

That is a good price if lenses and shutters are in working order. It's only money, right? Enjoy! Large format puts everything else photographic in perspective.

That brought back a lot of memories. The Speed Graphic was the standard USAF camera in the '60s. It was 'fun' to use it one handed and hold that that big flash and try to bounce the light so as to not blind the generals.

From yesterday's thrift store visit ... The Minolta is AOK, but the meter is out on the Vito ... it was only 3€. I couldn't just let it sit in the bin and risk getting sent to "file 13" ... J

When I was in Japan in April, I went to a tiny camera shop - and when I say tiny, I mean the size of the average kitchen but containing about a thousand cameras - in the basement of a karaoke club in Shinjuku. At the time I was experimenting with half frame and got myself an Olympus Pen D3 but now I really regret not buying one of the ten or so new old stock black Spotmatics still in their original packaging on the shelf. I'm concerned that when I return next summer I may just buy the whole shop.
Sounds like heaven.
