    Yep, i've now added you to the list :)

    Is there anyone else that i havent added? Please let me know, i may of missed someone. We have to try and get membership over 50;)

    Been thinking of putting up some lists and info as bit of a film users resource. Stuff like the best places to buy and develop film in particular cities. Places that repair/service film cameras. Links to websites with good info on specific film cameras. Film camera user manual etc.
    If you have any info, feel free to post it up or PM me, and we'll collate it into one of the inital posts of this thread.
    cheers :)

    Sorry about how long this took, but I only just got around to checking it, it seems that the mirror hits the rear of the lens when the shutter is released, this is what appears to cause half the image being black, how do I fix this? Anybody? :(

    Screwing off the rear filter fixes this problem, but raises another one, from what the net says, without the rear filter you cannot achieve a clear focus, does this mean I am up shite creek without a paddle?

    No worries, when I first tried it on my 5D the mirror was slapping the rear filter as well. So I just took it off and it works just fine and very sharp :)
    The lack of rear filter might have moved the focal plane back or front by a little bit but I recalibrated the lens after this anyway to achieve infinity focus. The end result is that I might have sacrificed some minimum focusing distance but thats about it. Just take it off and let us know how you went :thumbup:

    My Gossen Luna pro SBC light meter arrived today with variable spot meter (7.5 and 15'), luna flash 2 and enlarger attachments. Cost me $120aud delivered which is a total score because the unit itself sells for $100 and this is usually worth $250 all up.

    The prime glory about this light meter is that it meters down to EV -5. That's the amount of light a 1/2 moon gives off. Modern meters only go down to -2 which is about street lights in darkish conditions. Despite this meter being 20 years old it's in perfect condition. The "English lord" I bought it from must have loved his film gear. It can also calculate exposures out to 8 hours >:)
