I just found a cool 6x6 camera in a 35mm body from this place :::KIEVCAMERA::: (colons theirs).
A full Kiev 60 kit is only $349--pretty good price. That includes stuff like 2 finders (waist level and prism) and a lens cap!*
The only problem is that they only seem to offer it in black/chrome finish, wheras the original manufacturer offers a bit more
* close associates may recall my outrage at my Mamiya kit lacking a lenscap.
I just stumbled on a website for this place The Darkroom Studios...yikes!
Color Darkroom rentals just $7.50/hour--all chemistry included-woot. In New Jersey, about 15 minutes outside of Philly.
Yeee hah, I guess.
I just wrote a page about San Francisco and then closed the window without saving. I blame the browsers. They really should see a filled in form as a document that needs to be "saved" (submitted) before the window closes. How many times have I reflexively hit cmd-w to get to a backgrounded app and lost what I was working on in a browser window? I have no idea, but it's enough that I hate myself a little now everytime I do it and call myself mean names like idiot.
Anyway, at least you can still see the touristy pictures from our trip if you care.
I really like San Francisco. I also really liked my entry that has been blown into the ether.
