    Re: Adolph Gasser

    I just returned from Gasser's.
    There is still plenty of stuff at excellent prices. a couple of Majestic tripods, a ton of filters. Kodak chemicals, camera cases (even some vulcanoid period stuff) lots a dark room manuals, a copy of Edward Weston's Day Books, guillotine cutters, a really cool 8x10 contact printer (which I'm already having remorse over not buying) enlarging lenses, and a bunch of both Minette and Gepe cable releases. They probably still had some LF cameras for sale in the rental dept. but as I was trying to beat the traffic home, I didn't stick around to ask for details.
    If you drive a really tiny car, there is even free parking in the lot across the street.
    A truly great camera store (one of my first stops after I bought the 'dorff about 19 years ago, in fact---IIRC, I bought a lens board from them that day) and a lot of History.
    I'll miss it very much!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    I had never heard of it but saw it walking by one afternoon a couple years ago. I bought a cable release (expensive, maroon colored) that is now my favorite.

    The Minette cable releases are very nice.
