To Whom It May Concern

Apple Orchards

Since my birth­day is less than a month away, I thought I’d post my birth­day wish­list. Gimme a lot of presents! I love me a lot of presents! Yes, I am greedy!

– Has­sel­blad 500C/M medi­um for­mat SLR cam­era, though I would take any of its knock-offs as long as it pro­duces square neg­a­tives, e.g. Kowa Six or Kiev 88.
Lens­ba­by 3G for Canon EOS, even if Troy finds it lame.
Kenko Auto Exten­sion Tube Set DG (12, 20 & 36mm Tubes) for Canon EOS, since I have no macro lens.
Hol­ga body cap lens for Canon EOS because I don’t always have film in my Hol­ga.
— Polaroid 600 and Fuji Instax instant films (twin-packs, please).
— Many rolls of Kodak Ultra­Col­or 400 medi­um for­mat film (my favourite!).

I know some­body wouldn’t like this bank-break­ing wish­list. ;)

  1. I love my Kiev 88. I bought it from Arax, which is a good way to make sure you’re not get­ting a dud, but order­ing from the Ukraine was a huge pain.
    Why not make your own Hol­ga cap? It can cost more than $30.

  2. I’ll stop by the bank tonight and get a loan. Though if Dave is nice enough to get you a Has­sel­blad then the loan will be a lit­tle small­er :)

  3. I’ve tried mak­ing a home­made lens before using a lens cap. Didn’t work out very well. Besides, ship­ping to Cana­da costs a for­tune. Might as well buy a ready-made one and save on the blood, sweat, and tears. Heh.
