    Cheap Old (but working) Instamatic and Similar Cameras

    Hi all,

    I've got another project and I am in need of some cheap Instamatic cameras or similar ones in working condition. I also need a few of the old 126 cartridges that go with these (they need not actually have film in them). Now lets all be realistic, I know and you know that these have pretty much no value so please no absurd offers or ridiculous prices. I'm asking if anyone has a few of these sitting around as decoration that they wouldn't mind parting with for reimbursement for shipping and a few bucks compensation. Let me know. Thanks as usual!!

    I have a pretty nice Instamatic 304 that seems to work fine. the shutter will fire and i can get the flash to fire also. it is in pretty decent condition, but i can't seem to get the flash cubes to lock in place. you can have it for $10.00 dollars, shipped. i paid $5.00 for it. sorry, no film or cartridges.

    I usually find a pile of these at the local thrift. How many are you looking for?

    I'll pass but thank you.

    Same here. I used to find them everywhere at thrift stores for a few bucks. I looked far and wide the other day and came up empty handed. I have one Hawkeye Instamatic at the moment and I'd like to get my hands on just a few others to see which I like best and to see which ones will modify easiest. Nothing really set as a plan but I like to tinker with them.

    How about an original Instamtaic 100? Not 104. Same as the 104, but this uses AG-1 bulbs, not flash cubes. Probably somewhat of a "collectible" I would guess.

    Five bucks plus shipping. jaykhill@aol.com
