Shipping from Canada to the USA might be tricky & expensive
yet where there's a will there's a way.
If you want a list PM me

In my (small town) you can't even buy a roll of "film" .... anywhere.
Sure in the big city some specialty camera stores sell everything
from the film to the darkroom but who in their right mind will ever
go back to the hassle of darkroom .... esp. the chemicals & water waste.

The invent of digital has eliminated the threat on
the environment & your health.
Ask yourself:

Did you buy rolls of 100' and make cassettes of 20 expos ... to cut costs?
:side:

Did you have several different papers for diff. projects? ... more waste
:nunu:

What did you do to dispose of your chemicals? .... dump them in the toilet?
:whistle:

How many hours did you breath in the fumes of developer & fixer?
:drool:

Did you ever re-cycle your fixer for the silver? ... too much hassle right?
:toocrazy:

Could you retouch your portraits in the matter of minutes? .... NO !
:agree:

On & on & on . . . . :catfight:

About the only thing I will personally miss is the 'ol quality
of slide film .... which you didn't even process yourself.
As far as standards, this was the best ever medium for
any sort of reproduction.
Maybe still is.

Oh, I forgot to mention.
Anyone want a Maymia TLR with all the lenses .... for FREE
You pay the shipping.
Where do I get 120/220 film for it ???

I even tried to give my old eq'mt away to the school.
Guess what?
Even they don't want it.

Welcome to the world of DIGITAL .... like-it-or-not ! ........ :beerbang:



PS: I won't be "fondling" my 'olo Pentax watching TV.
It's in the bathroom suspended over the toilet ......... :rofl:





GT . . . . . :cheers:

Karl asks: "IF it works and the glass us in good condition, i would be happy to take that mamiya off of your hands if you are serious. Let me know how much shipping is. 48162 is my zip"

Me: Yes Karl everything is in perfect working order.
I bought the C220 body w/135mm lens new.
The accompanying lenses & anvil case were bought at an auction.
A second 135mm was most used.
I can give you a more detailed list of the accompanying lenses.
Here's some pix off the net and they are pretty accurate.

Seeing that you live on the other side of the continent and in the USA
shipping and border crossing tariffs may be quite dear yet maybe
worth the while to you. I could look into this.
I am near Vancouver British Columbia.

Thanx for asking & we'll keep in touch
GT ..... :cheers:

I will, thanks. Might be more than I'd have room for but worth a look.

They do still make 120 film, Freestyle sells it for one.

Karl I'm looking for darkroom supplies/equipment, I don't want your Mamiya! Go for it! - nice looking camera though.

I have bought hockey stuff from Canada, used to be really slow and often arrived after going thru Customs w/enough neon green tape around it to wrap around a hockey rink... not so slow anymore I don't think.

We got this thread way off topic didn't we?
