    What to do with your old camera...

    OK, this doesn't really have anything to do with 4/3 or m4/3, except that most of us got here from some other camera system, and some of us have old equipment hanging around. Here's what one guy in Vulcan, Alberta Canada did with his.

    It reminds me of a fellow I met 35 years ago. He'd take one of his old cameras, set it to hyperfocal distance, set the mechanical self timer for quick wind-down, then hurl it into the air! He had a large baseball glove to catch it. He'd do that for an entire roll of film. I saw some of his more interesting results and was impressed (but, then, he was a real darkrrom/print master).
    Best regards,
    John.

    Sometimes I give a camera I'm not using to a student that shows
    a natural ability to understand photography.

    My son had (still has, not sure if it works) my old Powershot S20.

    Earlier, a Rollei B35, hit the concrete and does not work any longer.



    Epson R-D1s, Rokkor 40/2, Leitz Rd IR filter.
