  1. I have about 30 assorted film cameras, mainly SLRs, from; Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Praktica, Yashica, Ricoh and Olympus. I don't shoot digital anymore apart from with my iPhone.
  2. I haven't received one this year but I did a couple of years ago and it went straight into the recycling bin. Cousins are not competitive any more so I rarely order from them. The last thing I bought was a stainless Omega buckle which set me back £28 with postage. That's twice the price of the NATO strap I am going to fit it to!
  3. Keep it original. It isn't often that you come across a vintage Seiko diver with all of its original parts fitted. It's easy to swap the parts though and, if you do, keep the original dial and hands. I suspect your watch dates to 1992 and not 1982 though.
  4. I scanned a slide I took in 1981. It was shot on my Zenit EM on ORWO UT18 colour slide film. I decided to re-take the shot on my Fuji X100 and crop the image to look similar to the original. The Zenit had a 58mm lens, the Fuji is equivalent to a 35mm lens on 35mm film. 1981. 2014.
  5. Tiddles in 1997. Sadly she passed away 12 months ago. She didn't quite make 18 years. This was scanned from a slide, home developed.
  6. Here's Tiger. Shot on my Kiev 60 on a Kodak Tri-X developed in Ilfotec LC29. [
  7. Have you tried a fresh battery in it?
  8. Here's Tabatha. She is 17 years old and has an over active thyroid gland, which means she is on medication and struggles to put any weight on.
  9. I used to wash my car once a fortnight but I didn't wash it for several months and the alloys have suffered and I have some rust spots on the bonnet to deal with. It's black, so it only stays clean for a few days.
  10. That's a very nice watch. Let me know when you feel the need to move it on.
  11. Nicely done! I have several Seamasters but I prefer to wear one of my 6309s.
  12. Your best option would be to buy one on an international internet auction site.
  13. Seiko do make their own movements. I'm not a big fan of the 700x or 7sxx series. The 6xxx series are better made IMHO but the 6119s do usually suffer from worn bushings where the barrel arbor is. I think that this is more due to a lack of routine maintainance than poor design.
