    I was thinking about passing this around, farktographer to farktographer, (each person taking roughly 5~50 shots, then quickly passing it on, developing as needed).

    Along with a fancy metallic sharpie for everybody to sign it. Maybe a stapler.
    Ideally it would continue indefinitely, traveling at a brisk pace, since the film can be replaced and farktography keeps growing.
    It has no [working] meter, and is fully manual. The 50mm lens goes from f/1.4 ~ f/16 and shutter goes 1 ~ 1/1000 seconds. The lens threading is pretty mangled, but the glass is more or less functional. There is a tiny assortment of films (ie, color of various ISOs, or black and white).

    Sound like fun?
    Sound like fun with major or minor changes?

    awesome, I’m in.

    I might be willing to do the same with a less-than-stellar but fully functional Diacord, if those involved were willing to donate $10 in an escrow fund against the possibility of it not returning to me. Everyone would get their money back when the camera was returned.

    Or we could all chip in on a Holga and send one around.

    Might be nice for those who shoot with it to do a take-one-leave-one with the film. So if I shoot a roll out of the pile, I’ll develop my roll but also contribute another roll to the pile when sending it on to its next destination.

    Also, SilverStag, were you wanting in next or is Uranus after me?

    No, leave me out. I’d sit the camera on the shelf and forget about it 🙂

    Add me to the list. Make sure I have some warning though as I’m in and out of the country a lot lately!
