Bonsoir, Jean Poiters.

I am curious, when and where is the Paris swap? It would have been fun to go there.

Regards
Baard-Einar.
Hei Baard-Einar,
He's probably talking about this:
Accueil
4 - 5 june. It's difficult to get good deals there, but it's huge & full of crazy collectors and vendors...

Bonjour,

Sorry that I did not see your message earlier ... and, "oui" ... one of the biggest swaps that I go to is the "Paris area" 2-day swap at Bièvres ... I have never been to Lyon or Marseilles ... or the ones in far north near Belgium. Way too far.

Here's the link (mostly) in English. Home

I will be going this year for both days ... I have reserved a B&B room for the night between Saturday and Sunday. Bièvres is about a 4 hour drive to the north for me and I will travel starting very earlier Saturday morning to return later on Sunday afternoon.

It's an adventure ...

Bonjour!

It sure looks to be an adventure. Maybe not the sort of weekend my partner would have enjoyed. We do want to go to Paris but photo gear doesn't trigger her like it triggers me.

Camera Show purchase

Purchased this nice M 135/3.5 at a camera show in Anaheim last Sunday for $40. Also a bunch of the plaid bags for 50 cents each.

Had both the the original pre-set screw mount and the later auto-diaphragm screw-mount version of the 135 f3.5 and thought both were very good performers.

Darkroom gear p0rn x-post. Trying out a Super-Tak 28/3.5

With a Kodak calibrated density step table, I could also use this device to measure relative base + fog density on BW film to do speed tests and what-not. But I don't do color wet prints anymore.

The Flektogon is in amazing condition. Hope the images look as good as the lens.

There's something sexy about the GraLab timer. I should get one just to keep around.

Here's an illustration of the size difference Colton mentions.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

I was told that Vuescan was capable of doing densitometry. Have you ever tried that feature?

That's the first I've heard of it. Good tip. I'll look into it.

So a little success story. Whilst going through the latest batch of cheap things I got to a kit I thought was dead. Black ME w50 1.7 and an M28 3.5 in case. Also a vivitar 135. I got the 28 cleaned up, case is gone to the land of sand sadly, and had left the camera until I could look at it. Mirror stuck, but with some batteries and some very minor persuasion it all just fell into place! Success! The 50 is pretty much mint, a spot of fungus near the rear to take care of.

I'm just super happy this little black me gets another go! Didn't have a vanilla ME, only an me super se, so the completely necessary* set continues to grow!

(*these things find me, not the other way around, promise!)
