    Thanks for the like

    Hi, there.
    Many thanks for your message, and all the best with the lockdown! It's been some time since I lived in Whangarei (my grandmother still lives very close to where you took that last photo. I grew up lived in Maunu and went to WBHS in the mid-late 80's, moving away for university (to the Waikato) in the early 90's, and having been back and forward overseas a few times. I don't think so, but thanks for reaching out. More than likely we have mutual acquaintances or friends.

    Looked at your gallery - some stunning images. You are lucky with the light - over here in the UK there are many months of days without decent light. I'm originally from the Southern Hemisphere so miss the southern light. It's different in the north - softer, creamier. I guess both have advantages.

    That's fine. Let me know anytime as I am not actively selling it. I have an MESuper that I can add to the carton for the same postage. It is classic black and silver with a rather mediocre Eveready case.
    It is missing the metal trim from on the top of the winder but it works in all respects. Extra $25 but no extra postage.

    That shipping is brutal. Let me think about this one for a moment.

    I'm not too worried about the mirror or seals - I have a donor. If everything is mechanically sound (shutter, mirror lock up, exposure counter, etc), I'm interested.

    In the *ist DL2 serial number database you are listed as a *ist DL2 owner. I was hoping you could help me out. We are trying to add support for this camera in our Windows codec so that you can view the RAW PEF files in places like Windows File Explorer however do not have the camera to generate the needed images. Do you think you could take the shots and send them to me?
    What I am looking for are JPEG/PEF pairs with an image from every ISO of the camera. For you camera you would have to take a still image at a jpeg and then switch to PEF in RAW and take the same shot. Please set the Color space to sRGB. Then take an image at ISO 200, 400, 800, 1600, and 3200. Just 5 shots for 5 PEF and 5 JPEG images.
    Thanks in advance.

    I just read a post you made in camera and field accessories "Velbon vs. Chinese knock-off focusing rail?" back in 2008.
    I have to agree with what you said about us prefering "Made in Japan" over "Made in China"
    I've often thought that myself when shopping for, well, anything. It's a sad situation that we got ourselves into over the years and now "We the People" are pretty much stuck with it.
    I do look for "Made in USA" as my primary preference when I'm shopping.

    ok. I think the best way would be to simply purchase a macro lens and call it good. From what I've read and seen, the results are similar and it's much easier from several aspects. Thanks for the response!

    how do you like the bellows you got on the camera purchase? I've been looking at getting one and would appreciate any details you could give me. I got it off this post:
