Way behind on posting, so here goes a bundle ...

From my thrift store, a 7€ camera bag containing a wide color assortment of 36mm filters which will be fun to play about on the Leica gear ... plus a negative holder that crops down to "half frame" size (see curtails closed here and maybe I can adapt it later) ... a neat clamp ... and something that I have never seen before ... a "Stylophot" French spy camera that seems to work with case and papers. Too cool ... https://www.collection-appareils.fr/x/html/appareil-21-Secam_Stylophot.html



Some film, a Posso bloc-note holder (1€, it's new & from the thrift store) ... plus 52mm wide angle hood with a PK/M42 adapter that I got for 5€ both at a boot sale ... plus a new 39mm UV filter from Amazon with other odds & ends.



From the thrift store again, a 5€ Pentax set ... the ME Super is in poor shape, but the M50/1.7 & Cokin CPL filter are OK ...



And a bit of a plunge for 20€ at another boot sale ... a very nice 15 blade Pentacon 135/2.8 and a Praktica LB 2 with a like-new aus Jena (read Carl Zeiss) T 50/2.8. All was good until I got home and then the body jammed up on me ... oh well, maybe I will tinker with it later. C'est la vie ...

Thanks for the info.

Any chance that these items will be available later to the general public?

why I won't buy a k3 (Warning: Satire Thread)

No license plates there, so I guess that all of that "WAS" new inventory ... plus I will bet that many will be dried and cleaned then put back on the used market. Maybe a bunch will head to eastern Europe or Russia ... and then be recirculated into western Europe.

My dad, the criminal defense lawyer, had a used car dealer as a constant client and he (and his sons) would buy very high mileage and rather new company cars in states other than Oklahoma.

The scheme was to have a fictitious sale between shell companies where the cars would pass through a Missouri license tag dealer to wash the "high" mileage off the titles. Example, buy a car in Kansas with 150+ K miles on it, then have the "odometer guy" pass by to roll 100+ K off the speedo (this at the time was done in exchange for a piece of paper with Benjamin Franklin's face on it) ... then tag the altered car now with the lower mileage in Missouri and then bring it into Oklahoma to sell retail as a low mileage clean almost new car. Neat, eh.

I even once saw the "odo" guy work his magic in Tulsa at this used dealer's lot ... not really hard to do with the old wheel-dial speedometers of the '70's & 80's.

To close on a happier note, the Feds finally caught this dealer and sons ... and my dad could not save the dealer dad and one of his sons from a free long-term stay in a Federal prison. Happy ending in some respects.

Me neither until I came to France.

She's now kind of a (bad) joke in many circles ... I cannot say anything about her earlier career.

And please note that she still has the same haircut!

Yeah, it was a quirky place indeed ... they said that there was to be an auction(s), but one knows.

I am going up to Paris tomorrow for the weekend to attend a festival with exhibitions and concerts and etc.

If time allows, I may try to pop in on this shop ... on verra (we'll see).

Bonjour y'all ...

Hope that everyone is fine and dandy.

I am just checking in the communicate some news which is a bit "sad" for me ... my favorite film-only "junk" camera shop is closing down and the story made it into the news!

Last time I was there about 3+ years ago, the front door could not openly fully because there was camera gear piled up on the floor blocking its path ... really, the door could only open about half way.

Sorry that the story is in French, but that happens a lot here. The video is worth a worth a "fun" look ...

Nice. Very nice.

The 24M is one that I have had on my short list for quite a while. I should sell off some lesser used gear and just buy one.

Thanks for sharing your video ... I just recently acquired the X-Pro 1's lil' brother, the X-E1. A lot of fun and quite cool with Pentax glass in K & M42. Check out Pentax-110 lenses ... tons of fun.
