    Not to be incredibly rude, but there is a market for used film cameras, just not the ones you're selling, except maybe the Ricohflex. The other two are $20 cameras give or take. That's why the dealers weren't interested. The Canonet was made by the tens of thousands - the brownie, even more. If you want to get an idea of what they might sell for, take a look at Shopgoodwill.com and Ebay.

    That's not rude.

    Yes, I agree that's why the dealers weren't interested. There's not a market for them and when I say them, I mean them (those sites specifically). They said that. The heavily digital influence on their sites indicates as much.

    But thanks for the input. I agree that they're a dime a dozen and I didn't pay a lot for them on eBay when I bought them, but they're too special to just donate. Worst case, the guy downtown at the pawnshop will probably give me a couple bucks. Except maybe I'll keep the Ricohflex after all.

    And I love your work, Flying Camera. I looked at your site. Really good images. And is Ben's Chili Bowl in D.C? I feel like I've read about it in a Pelecanos novel or two.....

    Thanks.

    I buy used cameras way too often on the Maine craigslist. I'm not after those you describe but I know someone in Rockland is looking to buy used cameras like that.
