    Some cheap solar filters and a few pairs of solar glasses in case we decide to go somewhere for the eclipse -- am afraid to wait to the last minute.

    I came across a Polaroid 104 and a Bell & Howell Super8 camera at an estate sale today. After some cleaning up and a couple of minor repairs on the movie camera they both work great. I have a pretty good supply of FP100C & 3000B that I should start using more before time does its damage. Cost me a whole $2.00.

    A Nikon lens of some sort. 24-120/3.5-5.6 AF-D I think. It has two things I don't normally do: zoom & auto-focus. It should work well on the F4. If I don't like it, it's getting sold with the F90.

    A late 1940s mini camera by Trusite, everything appears to function well. Not bad deal for 6 bucks.

    Two rolls of CMS 20 (comes as a two-pack, of course), a roll of CineStill 50, a roll of Ektar 100. Before that, was a rather dirty looking 135/2.8 Nikkor-QC with factory AI ring for $21.95 shipped.

    A little Kodak 2F box camera, the metal version. I have a hard time passing up a box camera that seems to function well, for ten bucks.

    2 pieces of glass to attempt making my own ground glass. Will probably try to grind it tomorrow.

    A box of Ilfospeed grade 3 glossy. What a superb paper, might be the only RC paper I actually like!

    That could work-I got some excellent results from Agfapan 400 which expired in 1989.
