Which ones have you got? Would love a Seagull tlr but they go too high. I do have a Seagull rangefinder somewhere.

Home early. We had a half day today. Had a quick look in the WYC lens boxes and found this for 5.

Always worth a go for that price. I had a job lot of bits arrive. Got a 49mm polarizing filter, a couple of close up filters for the Auto 110, a few other bits and a Leica Meter M hot shoe light meter in working condition.

Found a couple of films in cameras recently and both were C41 but I developed them as black and white. Anyone care to guess where this might be? I tried reverse image search but not joy.

I don't recognise it I'm afraid.
Acquired another lens - an AD2 28-80. Not a bargain price but a fair one, and it was local so I thought I'd give it a home. It's in pristine condition and came with a mount. Didn't think to look at than but when I got it home, I noticed it was one of the hens' teeth PKA variety, an added bonus.
The seller had a lovely condition Spotmatic F with lens too but I resisted that.

Have you got a Pentax to put it on? I really should stop but can't help it! Got an old instamatic arrive today as it came with a sealed 126 film cart. Expired 1977 and had 83p on it! Also came with some Hannimex flashcubes. Which is good but odd as the camera cannot use them!

I cracked the 126 cart open and following a YouTube guide (what would we do without YouTube?) loaded a test film. It winds on and sets the shutter and correct spacing (I used the original backing paper) and works as it should. Will get some Fomapan 100 and load a live one.

Instamatic and film cartridges. I remember those. In fact I think I had one when I was a kid. Will be interesting to see what kind of results it produces.

I know what you mean about not being able to stop but I'm trying to be rational about what I buy. Got 3 Pentaxes - and a Chinon to put the lens on. Strangely enough, I have nothing at all by the 2 big boys, Canon & Nikon.

Only Canons I have are two T50s and I have a Nikon EM and an FM. Did you want a T50 back? I might load it with colour and send it off in a black film can. Car boot again tomorrow I think.
Found a roll of Fomapan in my stash so I just loaded it in the 126 cart. Surprisingly easy to do. Bottom row of sprocket will be exposed though.

You hold on to the T50s. I just seem to be more attracted to other makes and don't really lust after any Canons or Nikons - though I might consider a Canonet.
I finished the film from the Ricoh 500 this afternoon but it was too cold and windy to stay out long.
Loaded up the X500 so will try to use that over the next few days.

Plenty of different Canonets about. I have a 28 in the collection. I sent Johnny a slightly broken QL 25 to fix. They take pain in the bum batteries though. If this 126 test works then I will hunt down a Voigtlander Beast K or a Zeiss Ikon Voigtlander Vitessa.
