It took me so-o-o-o LONG - to get to Memphis. We thought five hours; it was actually closer to 6. That's drive-time, too, and we stopped to have a leisurely breakfast yesterday AM, so we found ourselves in Memphis inspecting the Chromega D5 at 3 PM (our time). It was all set up and she had a negative loaded in it, and we were able to play around with the color head. She told us she had installed new color filters in 2002. We moved the levers and raised the color head up and down to check the movements, etc. She also said she went to make a print last week off it and the lightbulb had gone out so we have a new bulb in there. All in all, there didn't seem to be anything wrong with it. She said she bought it new and it's been in the same place since she got it. So - sold! :cheer: We dismantled it and started the long drive home. I didn't have time for any pictures or any sightseeing (sorry Hobbes!!). We didn't get home till 11 PM. I'm kinda ragged today but we're pumped. We still have to get it all set up and are going to look at tables today. And we still need blackout cloth, safelights, a bunch of other little items before we're ready to go. But it looks like we got a very nice deal on it. MATT - you would have gone nuts in her studio. She and her partner have done lots of commercial work over the last 30 years, and they are slowing down a bit which is why they're starting to unload stuff. That place was awesome. 16-foot ceilings, a few 4x5 cameras standing about, tons of MF lenses, camera bodies, lights, umbrellas, cables, more enlargers, all in this modest-looking frame house-turned-studio they've worked out of forever. It was fascinating. It was like buying stuff from your grandparents! Fun day, if exhausting.
