this magic box you speak of,
it sounds intriguing.

I got two beautiful Spotmatic everyready cases out of the magic/junk box. They looked pretty dusty, but the velvet was in good shape. I took them home and hit them with saddle soap followed by black shoe polish. Now they both look like new. One is on my KX and the other is on my brother's K1000.

Blue Moon is a little out of the way for me, but they are definitely good people. They do my Ektar 100 processing sub'ed out through Knight Camera in Vancouver. Knight is a pretty cool place as well. They do mostly camera repair, but have a ton of vintage 35mm stuff and a "magic box" full of cases, straps, and other weird things.

I've never been to Knight. I'll have to check that out. Thanks.

Forgot to mention that I got the cases $13 for the pair.

My Program Plus has the loudest shutter out of any of my cameras. Louder than my Mamiya 645. Unfortunately I don't like loud shutters
Then you'd hate the Mamiya RZ67 even more. Its shutter/mirror makes kind of a whump sound like closing a car door without a clicking latch.
