Hello All, thought I'd post a few examples from my M6:

And the camera...

M6 Titanium (Classic with the Elmar) serial number dates to October 1992, purchased new by one previous owner (who happens top be an award-winning photojournalist formerly with Contact Press Images) explaining its "user" condition; but it works flawlessly!

Thank you Brian! And that camera has a lot more dings and scratches than that picture shows, along with a "Contact Press Images" sticker on the baseplate. I'll definitely be leaving it on there, it adds to its character! :)

Nice photos. I still have my M6 although I use the 50 Summicron on a new digital. I'm tempted to get some Tri X out of the freezer and load it again. But not having a darkroom is a pain. I'm reluctant to use outside development, HC110 was my favorite, expired 2011. lol

Thanks James. A real darkroom isn’t necessarily a requirement, you can develop the film (I use a changing bag to load the tank), then scan; that’s what I do 95% of the time as I rarely make prints.

Smoking in Santa Monica??? A Federal offense.

At least a California offense! I know, I was just as shocked. ;)
