Found this add in Craigslist. I wonder how many he has booked?

"I am looking for a few more weddings to do in 2009.I can do any form of request that you might have as no two weddings are the same.I use a Canon SX10IS and a Kodak 650Z as a backup, and can use my Mamiya 35MM film camera if you want.You get unlimited photos,100 of them developed,a 100 picture photo album,and two copies of all photos on CD`s.I am easy going,flexible with any request you might have,and I do a good job.Please let me know if you would like to see examples of my work.Price is $150.00 the first hour and $100.00 per hour after that.Thank you for looking.Paul."

Pencil? No way, too easy for someone to accidentally erase everything....

Permanent marker! :D

All I can say if I was paying $100 an hour for this service and he showed up with that I would FLIP out! On the up side all your equipment will be paid off in about 4 hours!

If you ALL are stunned by this ad, then all of you previously posting should be embarassed that you didn't notice his biggest flaw! Mamiya is a predominantly a Medium Format, not 35mm. If he is legit in using a 35mm Mamiya his camera is circa 1950s to 1980s which is the last year Mamiya made a 35mm format film body!

Which means he could still have one, so what's the "flaw"?.

I still have my 1979 Canon F-1, it just means he has an old camera.

But no, I don't use it for weddings.
