[...] But every camera that I have has needed work. This includes Mamiya, Yashica, Graflex, and etc. A point to consider when buying equipment. Steven.
Ah! A recurring theme.
What someone making a buying decision needs to know is not whether, but why, when and how often.
Look at that, and it will become painfully apparant that not all cameras are created as equal as such a theme could suggest. Far from it.
(Evil spirited minds could also point out that the key to understanding what you write, Snederhiser, lies in the "i" in "every camera that i have".)
