Re: Fixing Agfa bellows

If you don't want to tackle the replacement of the bellows yourself, you can send the Isolette to Jurgen Kreckel.

Re: Missing friends

I am sorry to hear that Claudia passed away. I hope Lester is still doing fine. I sold him a Nikon EM camera many years ago and he sent me an art proof print by Jan Cox that he got from the artist when he stayed in Belgium.

Re: The end of an era

Been at the Photokina a few times when we (JVC) had a booth there. Wonderful event - lots to see and to learn. Will miss it. So sad that another part of my/our past is gone.

Hi again

Hi again, I'm back here again after a long while. I kept exchanging likes with Alex over on Instagram, but that was about it till now.

Re: Culmination

Looks like you are ready for anything indeed with that camera. And it will surely prove to be the only camera you'll ever need. Indeed looking forward to your pictures with this one. Enjoy!

Re: Budapest and Croatia, B&W

Nice series of pictures, Julio. I also had trouble linking to pictures on Photobucket and needed to upload them to Flickr, and that was not the first time. I think I will forget about Photobucket altogether.
