Reminds me of my Camera club at Brentwood in Essex. We have a long time member there in his 80's. What he doesn't know about cameras is not worth knowing. He always brings along something old and other worldly things to club evenings. He uses out of date film.....sometimes 20yrs out of date.......but he knows exactly what proportions to use to get it right when he develops. Anyway, the conversation always goes like this "So and so gave me this camera 20 years ago.....he's dead now" I took the plunge and gave him my Olympus film camera a little while ago. Thankfully I am still here to tell the tale!
