Default Another New Toy Thread

Picked this one up last night out of the local Kijiji. I have a love hate relationship with the 124G TLR. This is the 3rd one I have owned. I must be slipping as I did not even haggle over the 75.00 asking price. Did a little clean and replaced a light seal and battery. Just need some film. Camera show coming up this Sun so I guess I am looking for bay 1 filters and film.

I wonder if Leaf is going to make a 21mp back for it?

You know...I'v3 been wondering, for some time now, why "digital backs" are not made for all the film cameras on which the back can be swapped out....there are lots of 35mm cameras that can have the back removed.....seems a major market could be created if someone would get off their rump and design a "digital upgrade back" for old film cameras rather than requiring the purchase of all these new bodies and lenses that get upgraded every year or so....

I've owned two 124G's. Very nice camera, and pretty nice sharpness, but the viewfinder was DAAAAAAARRRRRRKKK! Couldn't focus in some dimly lit reception halls in years gone by.
