  1. Another great selection this week, Jim. I was especially interested in the ‘shoot-out’ between Foma and Kentmere. Although I’m a digi-man now, I want to use my film cameras now and then to keep them from seizing up, etc. I just ordered some Foma 400 and Fuji C200 and I’m looking forward to making some photos with it.
