250 Back users - how to save a bit of money...


I just wanted to remind any of the few people like myself that still use a RTS/RTSII with the 250 Back and motor drive that you can buy spare cassettes on Ebay for a fraction of the cost of Contax ones by using Olympus cassettes instead. I recently picked up 2 for 41 euros - the typical asking prices for a single Contax unit is around 90 Euros. A lot of photographers didn't realise that the two makes are interchangeable. Thank goodness for bulk Ilford b/w film which is still widely available...
