    Hey Everyone! I've been in San Diego helping organize my grandmother's things. I came across a few of my grandfather's cameras and a couple thousand Kodachrome slides. They've been in a drawer for the past 39 years, but I'm thrilled to have found them!

    Nice stuff! I've got a 'Cord and one of the Pioneers. If you use the Ansco, let me know how it turns out. I haven't used mine yet.

    Thanks! I'm excited to try it out.

    I hope they still work! Thanks and I'll have to take you up on your coffee too. :mrgreen:

    Thanks NJP! The Ansco looks like it could be fun to try out.

    Hey Christina,

    I hope you make it to the shop soon, bring the Rollei and the Retina for me to check and see whether they are up to par, before putting any film in. As I expect, they both will be just fine, since they're such marvelous machines, but you never know...

    Ooooh, lucky girl. Congrats and happy hunting thru all those slides. If they are the quality of the others you posted, you have a treasure trove and a way to connect with your grandfather.

    Looks like your rolleicord is in great condition. I'm almost sure that the rolleicord is still working. Lucky you!

    Thanks for the hint.... I'll come down there in the next couple weekends!

    Thanks K! There are some amazing images in the slides we checked out the other night. Anyone want to help me with this huge project?

    Thanks BenjieO! I'm looking forward to trying the Rolleicord out! It should be a fun challenge for me.

    Nice Rollei! My dad always wanted one, esp. when he was ~15 years old.
