    Looking for non-functioning cameras

    Hi folks.

    I am looking for NON-FUNCTIONING cameras to use as props. I prefer something that is unique such as folding cameras, TLRs, etc. Typical point-and-shoot or SLR is not what I am looking for. Lens can be badly scratched, shutter non-functional, etc, etc, etc. Since it will be used as props, I'd prefer not ones that are badly dented, smashed up, or ones with obvious visual defect. I am not even going to attempt to fix them, so if inside is gutted, that's fine, too.

    I thought I'd ask here before going to flea markets....

    Are you still looking for camera props? I'm a collector - and have several that you would like I'm sure (Zeiss-Ikons, etc.)

    If it is a non-funtioning 120 rangefinder with decent glass, I might offer more.

    I've got a non-functioning relative-looks okay, doesn't do anything. Everything's there, just not working. Makes a good prop. In front of a TV he'll stay propped for hours without moving. Actually, works a little-enough for beer and smokes. If you can use him I'll pay shipping. :rolleyes:
