I'm in, I think. I'm going to use a Rollei AFM35 which I just bought [and where the first roll I've have developed is very promising]. I'm really looking forward to shooting with just a compact for a few weeks.

I may have to cheat and shoot with another camera on Christmas day as my family may expect jpegs rather than waiting several weeks for film scans. I'll do my best, though.

I have a suspicion that you may not be the only one cheating on Christmas Day!

Sounds fun. I often go months without changing lenses, but I rarely make a rule of it.

What I do when I'm expected to shoot digital, is I give them the digital camera, let them do it, they usually have fun

I'm in: Leica MP and Summicron 50, as usual.

You can always crop them later when it's all over!
This puts the M8 classic users at a severe disadvantage because of inaccurate framelines

This sounds like loads of fun.

I'm torn between using my Bessa/Nokton 50, or using a combo that isn't my go-to kit.
Other ideas:
-Nikon FG/135mm or 50mm
-Olympus XA2 (35mm Fixed)
-Yashica-D (80mm fixed)

That's the spirit!
I think I'll confine myself to warm coffee shops and homes, and keep to isolated ventures into the cold.

Roland, Robert -- bobkonos & I want to come down to SF for a little shooting after Christmas -- any chance for a meet up?

What the heck! I'll use my Bessa R and Rigid Industar 50 lens. I just discovered that a Kodak Series V chrome lens hood fits this lens and I'm waiting for one in the mail from ebay. So, Ill be ready to go.

Keith, when you say no cropping, what exactly do you mean? Well, I know what cropping is, but I guess I wonder if you mean absolutely no cropping? For example, if I print my 35mm neg on 5x7 paper, it necessitates some cropping. Is that OK?

If so, I'm in. M6 classic, 50mm Summarit and HP5+.

Hi Dan,

I guess I was being a little tongue in cheek with the no cropping remark ... I think we should just exercise a little restraint and not crop from landscape to portrait or vice versa, or anything quite that extreme.

Hey ... if the bartender had his way it'd be no SLR's DSLR's or anything that wasn't a rangefinder. Luckily I don't remember him suggesting that to me!

Very reasonable. I look forward to it. Remind me to lock up all my other gear, so I don't slip up.

Btw, hope to see something wild from Oz, like the Python in your back yard, for example.

I expect that it'll be my Bessa L sporting its 15mm f/4.5 Super Wide Heliar. No cropping to me means printing full frame with the black borders to prove it, but that's how I usually print B&W anyway.

So your prints have perforation holes and all these KODAK/ILFORD/AGFA words, along with frame numbers?


This question is actual to me, because I scan prints and cropping is natural there, + I don't like to waste paper since it is not cheap.

I'm also in, I'll be using my Leica M2 and Color Skopar 35mm (just about to pay for it and the such -- so hopefully here this week.) Probably will use Tri-X.

I'm in. I have to decide what camera I'll be using though. My eos EF-M originally planned has a sticky top shutter speed.

Maybe a canonet GIII?

Maybe just my 5d....

Don't worry Gavin ... with two days to go I haven't decided either yet.

I considered my Crown Graphic but the thought of lugging that around in the current heat in Brisbane doesn't excite me much ... but I wouldn't mind staying away from 35mm for the two weeks so I'm now leaning towards my Bronica RF 645.

But this could change of course!

I notice Al's going for his signature Bessa and 15mm Heliar!

Crown Graphic and Brisbane heatbowl sounds like a decent effort Keith - although it would certainly be different.

You've given me a great idea though... There's a little old Holga that's only been used a few times so far sitting in my cupboard - Maybe I should shoot down to photo continental in Mt Gravatt and pick up some 120 rolls.... Hmmm. Would be interesting to use the holga with a tiny flash and the 120 film on new years night. It's certainly out of my comfort zone...

Nothing unusual: Leica M6 with Jupiter-8 I think.

Should I attempt to uphold the reputation of the 35mm UC-Hexanon against an onslought of 35mm 'Crons, 'Luxs and C/V competition?

Too many lenses. Too little time.

Yikes! The 17th is rapidly approaching.

I know I'm out of my league, but I can't resist . . .

I wouldn't mind jumping in with MF on my freshly-tuned 124G, but, in keeping with the theme of restrictions, I think I'll go with the Minister D (it's also just a little lighter) and Reala.

I thought Austrian time zone was like a day ahead of us. Meaning your time for decision is quickly running out. I can't decide either.

Only ten hours to go for me here and I may have made a decision. I have to spend the day in the city tomorrow while I wait to get some work done on my trusty Vespa and I see it as an opportunity to do a 'Winogrand' ... which is rare for me as I generally avoid this style of photography.

So it will definitely be a rangfinder and either a 50mm or 35mm ... the R3A and either 35 or 50 Hex is looking good at this late stage!

I'm suddenly wavering now. I've got a FD 35/2 chrome nose lens coming - this is one of the legendary lenses from Canon made with thorium glass and a near permanent light yellow cast as a result. I'm thinking that if I get it in time, I'll use it & BW400CN instead of the 50/1.4 SSC. I'm a 50 person. A couple weeks of forcing myself to use a 35 instead would be good for me no matter what else comes out of this project.
