Prompted by ReD's 35mm pinhole experiments, I dug out my old Zenit TTL to have a go myself, only to find the shutter committing seppuku (or whatever the Soviet equivalent - if there was one - was) within seconds. Presumably he thought I was some sort of Imperialist and was exploiting his labour value. Accordingly, I turned to Freecycle (which is where the Zenit had originally ... um... originated ... ) and posted a "WANTED: any old camera". Within about 30 minutes, a nice lady emailed me to say she had an old camera I could have for nuffing ... so I went and collected it this afternoon ... here it is: yep, a Nikon F2 with DP-1 Photomic head and a 50/2 Nikkor. and it's black! For free. The only problem with this free beauty is that she's jammed solid and will need a service from the esteemed Sover Wong. Which means I will have to sell a kidney, and eat out of bins for a few weeks. Alternatively, I could sell the Yashica MAT-124 and the Sigma DP2s, neither of which I use these days. Anyone want a nice TLR and a nice Foveon ?
