    The hoarde is growing stronger. What should I do?

    Sure, there are places that need more cameras for their people. But these are mostly unusable, as the film is either EXTREMELY expensive, or not available at all. So from a learning standpoint, they are worthless. Camera clubs and classes at the local college couldn't use them. Thats what makes...

    The hoarde is growing stronger. What should I do?

    If you find this thread a little lighthearted, then I have certainly accomplished my goal. However, this is actually quite serious. For a while now, I have been buying vintage gear. Not to collect, but to get to use and enjoy for a few rolls, and then pass on to a worthy owner or collector. I...

    The worlds first digital camera? Could it be?!?

    Nothing for nothing, but if the person who listed this really is this stupid, it's wholly possible that they are sitting on an M9D. Just saying. I'm sure that a quick google of "Degitul Rayngefindar" or however they fistpounded it into the search bar could turn up an Argus.

    The worlds first digital camera? Could it be?!?

    The shutter has never been fired and only dropped once!

    The worlds first digital camera? Could it be?!?

    No mention of whether or not it has any expired undeveloped CF card in it.

    Kodak No. 1-A Autographic (w/ photos of the camera)

    You could potentially use sheet film, if it is fixed to the back of the camera in the darkroom. Also, there is a place to get 116 film. Central Camera in Chicago has it. They can also develop it for you, if you don't have the means to develop black and white at home. Film for Older Cameras ...

    Shinano Pigeon

    Well yea, I did find that. But that's about it, Just how rare is this thing? I can't find any information about numbers produced, nor can I really find any information about going price. I found one site that said the going price was about $150 for a reasonable example, but then also said it...

    Shinano Pigeon

    I recently acquired this camera as part of an auction lot. I've gotten a lot of great cameras this way, and every single one I have been able to find a plethora of information on the internet for. In this case, I can hardly find anything at all! I don't expect it to be some rare find, but I do...

    Lens filters - Is the expense worth the result?

    This is exactly what I was looking for, as far as a response. THANKS! I went ahead and ordered a 720nm filter via eBay anyways. At $9, I couldnt go wrong. We shall see what China offers, and my results will be posted here.

    Lens filters - Is the expense worth the result?

    Yea, I would. In fact, I am using a 50mm kit lens with my AE-1 for this roll. I'm not looking to take anything for the cover of Time, but I would like for my photographs to actually look like infrared and not just black and white or negatives. Im most likely just going to get the cheap eBay...

    Lens filters - Is the expense worth the result?

    That's the dilemma. I can get a used Hoya for $40, or I can get this cheap filter for less than $20. I don't foresee myself buying cases and cases of IR film in the future, so I don't know if it is worth the expense of buying the Hoya now, or just buying the cheap chinese filter to expose this...

    Lens filters - Is the expense worth the result?

    So I recently had a roll of 2007 expired, but kept frozen Kodak HIE Infrared film come into my possession. I want to use it correctly and use an IR filter with it. Now, I only have this one roll, so investing even in a used Hoya r72 at around $40 is a bit of a stretch. On eBay, there are cheap...

    Using an OLD box camera?

    My experience has been that the older cameras like slow film. You have to take into consideration, that at the time of the cameras manufacture, fast film didn't really exist. ISO100 would have been the hottest film money could buy. That said, in my experience, stick to the slower films. Better...
