    .... today (Tues May 1st) was a bit of weird combo .... first I purchased 10 rolls
    of Agfa Vista 200 which left us with about 50-55 rolls :) ....move ahead about 3 hours,
    and I sold the last 28 rolls of Agfa Vista. :eek: The weird part mentioned above was
    when I sold all 18 packs of our (dust laden) (see pic) ....

    How much did they charge you to take the things away?

    There is a buyer for everything, it's just a matter of finding them, or so it has been said....

    I am pretty sure that I have a cube flash attachment somewhere... I might even have a kodak Instamatic in the loft that uses them direct.
    I know I have a few 1B capless bulbs.

    Crazy thing, Steve, is that the Magic Cubes were priced at $15.99 a pack :eek:

    That is so true, Nimbus :). Heck, a few years back we had a used Nikkor AFD-28/1.4 on consignment for $2000.00 + plus tax and, at the time,
    a person could buy a brand new Sigma ART 24/1.4 for $1099 + taxes :eek:. Whilst we did sell a few of the Sigma ART lenses, about a year later
    a person came in and purchased the Nikkor lens amongst a few other goodies totally around 8-9K :eek:

    Cheers,

    the picture today, I'll some interesting "blasts from the past" that we have on consignment, tomorrow :D

    Cheers,

    I should drop by and see if you've got any GE #5 flashbulbs that I can use with my Speed Graphic!

    Stop boasting Jeff. Everyone knows you're still using a flash powder tray! :cool:

    My first flash used powder, I also bought one that used magnesium ribbon. both were used with the shutter set to bulb... open shutter, fire flash close, shutter.
    the films were so slow the secondary exposure was not a problem. the shutter was not synced anyway.

    Yowza, So, you started shooting in 1946, Terry :eek: and I would have started a mere 40 years later ;)

    Cheers,

    Also, I just realised on my Wednesday that I kinda told a fib :eek: .... Just to double check on the Vista 200 film,
    I contacted the Canadian supplier and was really surprised to find out that they had 170 rolls in stock and
    some more in transit :eek: .... which means I can still pick up some more for myself ;)

    Cheers,

    Jack

    He didn't mean with a camera and attachment, he meant with a grubby mac.

    Dear Terry,

    Known for it!

    But if flash photography was ALL he invented, it wouldn't have been eclipsed by his other achievements.

    Cheers,
