    I bought a Kodak Medalist I 6X9. Very sharp lens, but only the 1/200 shutter speed works. No problem so far, I'm shooting Tri-X. I'm going to have to send it to Ken Ruth at Bald Mountain Camera to make it complete.

    Hmmm. Let me think. I think it would be the Yashica Electro 35 GSN that showed up on my door steps due to a series of weird events.

    Contax II .
    I've shot it enough to know it will replace the Leica screwmount I picked up when I first decided to try 135 RF scene.

    Bought a Fuji GW 690 from Tokyo. Works perfectly, this is from a recent roll.

    A Reflex Primar 9x12 SLR with a lovely 210mm f/3.5 Meyer Trioplan. This camera is a blast and really fun to take out shooting. I'm using it do a project of contact prints on Ilford MG Art 300.

    Yet another Nikon F2 (OMG...why?). I picked this one up on "that site" for the sum of $62.05 USD. The body is a chrome 80XXXXX, with little sign of wear (decidedly well-cared for). The purchase was for the body only; I now have to decide whether this one will be an F2A or an F2AS (I have a line on both a DP11 and a DP12). Decisions, decisions...:whistling:

    My latest new old camera is a Kiev 60, modified for 4.5x6cm format. That makes several Kiev 60s in my stable, along with several lenses and accessories for that system.

    Of course this is not a 35mm camera, so I am not sure it fits this thread, but at least it's responsive to the original question.

    My latest, "new" old camera (35mm) is a beautiful, MINT Minolta XE-7 (black). It needs a CLA, but the shutter works and the meter is spot-on accurate.

    I paid the whopping sum of $35 last Fall, but haven't done anything with it yet aside from working the shutter/winder (which "sticks" and thereby fails to return until I manage to work it enough and it returns on it's own..... CLA *definitely* required!).

    A Eumig C 16 with a slightly damaged counter

    This is probably the sturdiest, most rugged, and most reliable 16mm film camera ever sold. I am preparing for a conversion to C mount. Beaulieu, Bolex, Pathé, Revere, everything else pales in comparison to it.

    Yesterday, a guy gave me two black OM-4ti bodies and a Mamiya 645. Both kits with enormous amounts of accessories and lenses. (zuiko shift and zuiko 18, and the sekor 35mm amongst many others)
    I got it totally for free, because he saw me on the frontpage of a (quite wellknown) news paper in Denmark, talking about analogue photography, and thought i'd need it.

    You are very lucky. That is an amazing story ! My XA3 in the op was not free, but it cost me 99p on ebay. (and I thought I had done well)

    Edixa Reflex.

    I bought an Edixa 750 off Ebay before Easter, but it arrived broken, when I complained to the seller he offered to send me another camera instead of doing a refund. So I got an Edixa Reflex the day before yesterday.

    The top plate is somewhat corroded, the slow times don't work (<1/25), the covering has peeled off, but otherwise it seems to work. I'll run a roll of film through it as soon as possible.

    Latest is a Rolleiflex Automat that I found at a Flea market managed to get it for £75 ($120)just under half the asking price, the shutter and lens are excellent and it has the Zeiss Opton Tessar.

    [​IMG]
    Came with the lens hood and a case that needs restitching, the extra (larger) focus knob,the paintworks a touch worn but it's alreday in use as my main MF camera here in the UK.

    Won a Mamiya C330 on the bay a couple of weeks ago. The seller (German) was a great guy, even packed in a brick of expired Fuji Pro 400H and a handwritten thankyou letter (didn't think I paid that much for it).

    A client gave me a Minolta X-370 she had purchased and used a few times in college in the early '80s and just put it away in a closet for nearly 30 years. She bought it along with two Toyo Optics zooms.

    I bought a 50mm Rokkor from KEH to set it up right. A light weight, easy to use camera.
