    Scored another!

    Found this 420 with case and accessories on eBay for next to nothing. It looks brand new. Even the original 3v battery and compartment are spotless!!?

    I stalk eBay daily - to the point where I think I'm becoming one of those people you see on hoarders. I have it on my iMac, my iPad, and my iPhone, and at any given time I have usually about 30-50 items I'm watching. I got my 104 for $10, my first 420 for $12, my 250 for $20, and this last 420 with case and accessories for $24.

    I've been really lucky and only one of my cameras had a tiny bit of battery corrosion, but it was easy enough to clean up. Once you stalk eBay enough, you learn to tell which sellers know what they are talking about, and which ones are trying to sell rust buckets.

    Get ready. Its A-D-D-I-C-T-I-N-G !!! And now that I have learned how to bleach my negatives, and scan them on the newly arrived V700, I'm sure its going to get that much worse for me!!!

    I too, love to buy these FUN cameras whenever I come across them. One day, people will re-discover just how awesome this type of photography can be. I like the models with a range-finder, but I prefer the bulb flash unit to the cube type. Anyway, great find on your new camera.

    Wow, Christopher...... you REALLY have it bad, don't you? After you get moved, we will have to arrange another film crawl so we can take our toys out to play!

    Too many Valerie. I'm up to 5 now... a 100, 104, 250, 420, and "The Reporter." LOL!

    I'm thinking about selling some of them and only keeping my favorites.

    If someone wants to come to the house, I have about a half dozen sitting in the basement that need to leave. Even have a 180 and 195 but they are not included in the gift pack.
