The 35mmc Brian refers to is here: https://www.35mmc.com/19/12/2021/an-open-invitation-to-the-travelling-canonet-project-by-bob-janes/

The 'commitment' there was:

to receive the camera, take 5 (or more) pictures, replenish the film if you use it up – process any used-up film and post on to the next person.

So, at maximum:

Share a contact email and a postal address with someone so they can send you a camera,
Spend up to 1 week [this was never held to, I think we were lucky getting it to 1 person a month - this is a bit of a long distance project] taking 5 pictures (or more) with a characterful camera from 1962,
Possibly supply a B&W film if you reach the end of the film,
Possibly either process a B&W film and post the results (or post the film to Greenwich, London, UK, with permission for me to post the results [or to whoever is willing to take on responsibility]),
Pay postage for a heavy-ish camera to somewhere that could be on another continent (marking value at zero for customs purposes) via a reasonable carrier…


At 35mmc I had a list and it takes quite a bit of admin to connect, but I guess we might be able to do something a bit more off the cuff in a forum. Perhaps if we had a list of people in various territories that were interested and we might be able to look for ways of cutting down customs delays when people visit countries..

I'd be interested in joining (@Howard_S, Oxford, UK).

Would the idea be to share the body and use our own lenses? Or is there a kit lens or similar to go with the body?

I'd be interested to join (pegelli, Schilde, Belgium)

I would definitely like to use some of my own A-mount lenses but to be sure for people who sold them all (or never had any) maybe inlude a light kit or short prime in the package.
