I am looking for a working Leica Barnack or, film 'M' that you'd rather see being used by me, on a regular basics, than sitting in the closet, gathering dust.
I am looking about for a functioning 'user', warts and all, no a collectable or valuable collectors piece (yes, I know they are all of valuable in one sense or another), but a solid working camera with the wear and tear of hard use and misadventure, that still delivers the shot.
This would be my daily, carry camera, as the SLRs in 35mm have gotten bulky, especially when i carry medium format kit.
No equipment made available to me, will be sold or traded away, as a condition this, will be sold, or traded away, but like any other camera, lenses, enlargers, etc passed on to me, will be made available to people who are carrying forward analog photography into the future.
If my method of asking for such a valuable item offends you, I will only mention that I have, for years, received and passed on, kit, usually to younger photographers starting out, that I have receive this same way and, some I simply bought and no longer needed, and one day any kit I might receive as a result of this ask, will be passed on the same way.
Cheers, Be Safe, Be happy and Godspeed to all.
