Is it cheeky to ask the price when the hammer went down?

I've just bought a new roll of Ilford HP5 Plus to run through a 30 year old Hasselblad 500C.
I've also dug out my old Sekonic light meter as, for 7 excluding developing, I only get 12 shots from the roll.
Going to be a lot of fun going back in time and working at a much slower pace..

Yesterday, walking through my local woods with my dog. Got some interesting shots of wild dogwood trees & a small rapids in the stream.

Fil was HP5+; lens was 136mm on Pentax ME.

Yesterday, my Nikon FE2. Why not, when you can finally afford the camera you coveted in the 80's? Wink
Last week i finished my film had developed and the normal 6x4 printed, wonderful.

Well done! Please, post some here or in the main gallery. I will probably load film in June. Keeps the sprockets moving.

Shot a roll, last week, with a really nice Contax RTS II which came off eBay as not working. Took a punt and exercised the shutter for a while using the secret mechanical release and got it running after a few days. Just waiting for the film to come back now.

Have a small backlog of cameras to work through at the moment - also have a Contax Aria and a Contax T with film in them.

I shot a 120 roll of HP5 yesterday and it really slowed me down made me think more about what I was trying to achieve.

I've just rescued / recovered / reprieved an old Canon T90 with a Vivitar Series 1 28-105 lens. It's very dirty and dusty externally but the film rails, sprockets etc are clean and the lens is crystal clear.
A summer film spree therefore beckons if it still works.
If not - it's a fabulous paper weight.
It used to be a super camera in its day, so it will be great to run a couple of rolls through it..
