they seem a decent bunch, like most forums it's not so active I think as it was, but if you search a bit or read threads then it's surprising what amateurs know.

Bought a 3d printed 35mm to 120 film adapter. Allows me to use 35mm film easily in a medium camera to try out sprocket photography. Just waiting for a 120 spool to arrive and will give it a go.

I may have gone overboard at the car boot this morning. Picked up a Yaschica Lynx 1000, a Kodak Brownie 620D and a Canon AE-1.

Found a National PB3 flash in mint condition, not sure if it works but have also got some bulbs for it. Mounted on a Vito B:

Nice, am off to look at a Pentax K2 tomorrow, so fingers crossed it isn't knackered or too expensive!

Yep, 20. The chap had a couple of box box cameras, an MV-1 and a Praktika MTL3, plus a busted Ensign 6x9 folder (struts broken and God knows what else), and a range of odds and sods including a winder for filling your own 35mm canisters. Most of it was a bit rough but the K2 and the MTL3 looked good. The latter is hardly a classic and I don't really like stop-down metering FWIW, plus the ribbing the missus was likely to give me over yet another camera! The K2 looks good though, outside needs a bit of a clean, but came with a case and a skylight filter in lieu of a lens cap, even the batteries are still good (though I need to check they aren't leaking yet).

BOX! Yep I think I saw one of those yesterday, to be honest I was intent on the K2 and didn't think of much else! Gave it a clean last night, all good though the mirror brake foam is turning to mush as with any old Pentaxes, I have to replace this on my Super A as well. It has a 50mm F1.2 Pentax lens, but the front half of it seems to wobble a bit, need to investigate what I can do about it. Still not finished the film in the Vitomatic so will try to fix those things before trying it out.
