Nice, but I try not to pay a fair price for anything!

Another Durst Automatica 123797225944 currently cheap but ending Sunday night. Am thinking of it (would be the third one!) as I have a spares camera although I think this one just needs fettling, which most people would be fearful of. Case looks good as well, the one I have is a bit rough. Ummm..........

Got my new laptop. Going to take a while to get used to as I've only had desktops.

I finally got around to glueing the bits of leatherette on the Automatica, am just going to touch up the paint a bit and it's done. the top and bottom edges of the film door are paints, that's all I think, it's a bit chipped though. Started on the shutter of the Fujica to try to understand the focus adjustment. The shutter blades are a bit smeary, but there is visible oil on the aperture blades. Nicely made though.

So what are you gpoing to do about the Automatica? Take a punt? Just about got my Epson 2450 working on Windows 10. Had to download software for a 4990 and run it off that instead. Bought an adapter for my 23in Acer monitor and have it hooked up a second scren off the laptop. I can now scan on one screen and surf with the other. Quite useful really.

I think so, will bomb in there at the last minute, trouble is it's Sunday just before 9pm and they've added the details to the ad that the meter and shutter work. So, odds are against me but will decide a price and go for it. It only needs CLA I think and the mysterious workings put people off trying, so fingers crossed.
I ha a bit of a mare getting my HP working too, the workaround in 7 was to use the XP or whatever driver and run it in compatibility mode (find the driver application, right-click and set it to that). How have you go on with rez, we had a mare at work with second screens and it only seemed to want to use the same rez for both.

Windows has sorted it all out. 1680x1050 on second screen and 1920 x1080 on the primary. I have it set to extend the desktop so I can drag what I need onto screen two while surfing on the main one. Seems to be handling it well except I keep clipping the touchpad with the heel of my hand.

Dunno. Should be able to get one for less than that. I don't know if it makes any difference but from the photos, there are marks on the front ring as if someone;s hacked their way in.

Always worth an ask! I didn't notice the marks. I picked up probably one of my oldest cameras yesterday from the re-use shop, it's a Butcher Maxim No.2. Built between 1903 and 1920, mines the 6x9 model. Shutter works and I have given it a good clean up. http://camera-wiki.org/wiki/Butcher%27s_Maxim. I put an offer in on a 50mm Rokkor PF 1.7 for 20 (19 opening bid price) counter offer received for 25. I keep an eye on it and no bids, so I bid 19. Instantly outbid even though there were no other bids. Seemed fishy so I left it. Wanted the lens for my X500. Might take a punt on this 383000901019
