    I don't know if there are variations. I did have a Kindreman and that one is only large enough for metal reels.

    Yes, to be followed by the rainy season, aka 'summer'.

    I just received a very lightly used Nikkor AF-S 85mm f1.8G.

    And by an odd coincidence, I just discovered eight rolls of Cinestill 50 sitting in a small sack next to my desk. I have no idea how long it's been there. The film fairy must have brought this, as I was contemplating buying some just last week!

    A nice unused bag from the local thrift store that holds the Mamiya 1000S very nicely.

    I picked up a Kearsarge 402 to add to my two misbehavin' Gralab 645s and Gralab 900. Next is to find a foot pedal for it. When I am done with that trick, I'll turn my attention to world peace, 'cause it will take about as much effort. Lol.

    I also finally picked up a book by one of my all time favorite photographers, Anton Corbijn called Hollands Deep. It is supposed to be a retrospective, so I hope it will be as good and as thorough as possible. I've never before seen a book that captured the true breadth of his work. I hope this is the one. There is someone on Flickr who photographed the show and it looked amazing. Fingers crossed.

    I grabbed a Sigma 100-400mm f/5~6.3 while it was on sale at Adorama. Alas, it's a digital only lens.

    A "D" squared off focusing screen for my Canon F1n's off eBay, these things were always expensive but they sell these days for about three times or more than they cost new forty years ago.

    A really nice pristine Speed Graphic with the Graflex Optar 135mm lens, a Pyrocat HD 500ml kit, some palladium printing chemistry (EDTA and sodium sulfite, Potassium Oxalate developer, and a Ziatype kit for my upcoming class). I'll need to get some more 4x5 film for use with the large format class I'm teaching.

    A Bausch and Lomb Compound shutter it's unknown size roughly #0 but until it arrives I'm not sure if its US thread or European. - my guess US but I have lens cells that will fit either way :D

    One can never have enough shutters, as long as the price is right. It's surprising how many new (unused) shutters I've found with blank aperture scales, US and European, I just need a cheap NIB Betax #5 . . . . . . . . . . .
