  1. This is why I tell my wife:
    "Don't worry about me accumulating so many old cameras (G.A.S.), when the RE35 digital roll finally comes out,
    it will SKYROCKET the value of these forgotten film cameras, and as a result, be better than a retirement account"
    ;) :rolleyes:

  2. None of the local shops where I live ever have any photo gear at all so I'm limited to ebay or KEH. KEH does usually cost more, but they do provide a warranty on most items.
    However, I was lucky enough, year before last, to have a friend that gave me the following fully functional gear (in good condition): Pentax Spotmatic F with 50mm f1.4, 35mm f2.8, 28mm f3.5, 105mm f2.8, and 200mm (all Takumars)
     
  3. Wow! Nice friend!
     
  4. Yes, and this friend also gave me a barely used Vivitar 383 flash a few month after. Mainly using it on manual gear with no electronics since I haven't gotten around to checking the sync voltage yet.
     
  5. Good thinking. I know someone who fried the circuitry in his digicam by using a film era flash on it. Ouch!
     
  6. Wein makes an adapter called Safe Sync which reduces the sync voltage to a safe 6 volts. I have one with a built in pc socket. I use it mainly for my Sunpak AP 52 622 on my Pentax K50 and Canon Rebel T3. But before I got any digital gear I also used the adapter with my Minolta X700 and XD-5.
    BTW, if using a multitester to check sync voltage make sure it is rated at 20,000 volts per ohm.
     
  7. The vapor is coalescing! It may actually become a physical product.
     
  8. Well I'm waiting with baited breath...

  10. Been eatin' worms, have ya? :D Or, did you mean 'bated breath'?
    Well, it was August when they sent that, so I'm going with August. But, I don't expect mine any time soon.
