IT’S BEEN A BAD WEEK FOR ME AND MAIL ORDER ROLLEI 2.8FS. THIS HERE IS THE SECOND ONE WHICH ARRIVED IN DISREPAIR AND RETURNED TO SENDER. THE FIRST FROM KEH, ARRIVED COMPLETELY UNUSABLE, BELLOWS LOCKED, THE SECOND FROM A “REPUTABLE” EBAY STORE IN HONG KONG, WHICH ARRIVED LOCKED AT A 1/30 OF A SECOND. I NOTICED THIS ONLY AFTER LOADING A ROLL OF VELVIA. SHOT THE ROLL ANYWAY. SUFFICE IT TO SAY, MOST OF IT WAS BADLY EXPOSED. IRONICALLY , THIS DOUBLE OF MY RAGE EXPOSED QUITE NICELY HOWEVER.
(post: the third stab arrived today, by the looks of it in good shape, shot a roll, let’s see what happens…)
I know I just posted but we walked outside and found Fuji-San! Stoked because he can be hard to see this time of year and not only that, we are taking a scenic train to Hakone which means we will have some beautiful views of him going up!
