52 shades: no.48. Dijkwerkers by TLO-Photography
52 shades: no.48. Dijkwerkers
A monument for those who did not leave but fought the cold water of the North Sea by building the Veerse Dam. Located at Kamperland, Zeeland (NL).

Shot on Kodak VR200 with Revue AC2 and 35-100mm, converted and processed to B/W in Lightroom.

yes i am...

as you know i am selling most of my stuff, things that do not really fit into my Minolta and Konica collection and some items i have double or even triple.

One of these items is a very neat Minolta XG-M with Rokkor 1.7/50 lens, beauty on the outside and in perfect working order with a 100% clean lens.

It was advertised on a dutch internet place, didn't take long to get an offer, not much, just 30 euros including postage, a steal actually. The buyer turns out be a young and fresh hipster moviemaker with his own IMDB profile and so on, well, deal made.

2 days later he sends me an email.... "you sold me a broken camera" ....... Impossible!!! I tested this thing, took out the batteries, checked if it was turned off and in "lock" position, put it in a box and sent it away, without batteries the shutter does not fire and you cannot use the transport lever.

After going through some possible mistakes he could have made i decided to send him a free of charge (not for me though) return label to send it back to me.

What a big surprise when i opened the box..... 

He obviously had pulled the transport lever.... without having batteries in it..... without having the shutter fired first.... the film transport system is completely ruined..... which means it doesn't make a full cycle anymore to cock the shutter and so on....

He insists it was this way when i sent it to him..... NO WAY!

Blergh..... some people... no knowledge of the "old things", thinking they own the world and know how it all works....
Hipsters who want to own film equipment for the "hype"..... not my kinda people..... they better keep using their phones for filming short clips that show in the wrong direction on my tv.....
