    No - but i might get round to it.
    The hassle and cost puts me off, but it would be fun and they all appear to work. I got a as far as seeing if you can get all the weird film stock and it appears you can.

    You certainly look after your cameras Mark, the film cameras look great especially the one with the three lenses.

    Well it certainly shows in the images that you have looked after them, have you ever had them valued now to see what they are worth? The camera with the three lenses reminded me of an old episode of Top Of The Pops, 1968, where Joe Cocker and The Greaseband were on stage singing '(I get by) With a little help from my friends' and from what I remember the cameras didn't have zoom lenses. Instead they had that 3 lens setup where they could go from a wide shot, to a medium shot to a close up by rotating the lenses at the front. Any chance we'll see you on The Antiques Roadshow looking all surprised when you are told how much they are worth?
