    I've found some great cameras for cheap at flea markets. My last good deal was a mint Retina IIIC for <$20.

    What I do usually is: I buy camera for couple of euros on flea market, play a little and then to big auction site start from 1$. Most of the time I got even, sometimes I lose a buck, sometimes I win :smile:.
    Last one that I got is some lomo plastic toy with 4 lenses, funny camera.

    Great camera. Meters in Aperture Priority Auto with any single-pin screw-mount lens. Thousands of lenses fit that camera.

    Not a flea market, but a yardsale - and it was on the "free" table.
    A Kodak Carrousel 850 w. 4"/2.8 lens, with cords, fresh bulb, and two slide Carrousels. :smile: I did end up walking about three miles with it...

    I recently picked up in a yard sale also, a Minolta X-700 35mm camera w/ Samyang MC Auto Zoom 35-70 mm 1:3.5-4.5 , and a Tamron 70-210 mm 1:4-5.6 Zoom and a Tamron 2 x AFI BBAR MC7 tele-converter for $40.00. Everything in mint condition, almost finished with my first roll of film with it.

    The converter not useable as-is for the camera, so need to find an adapter or, trade for one that will fit.
