Your most recent toy/plastic camera purchase
I've been searching theBAY forever for a BIN Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim and finally one appeared today with'a BIN at a reasonable price! Can't wait to see this 22mm lens rock-the-world
Any P&S scores at trift or garage-sailing or whatnot?
I bought one of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lomo-Reces...item1e76a15121
Which amused me a lot for a couple of days ... until it fell out of my bag without me noticing when I was out walking, complete with a whole roll of exposed film ... lost forever ...

LOL, a roll of film is worth almost what the camera sells for.

TwoJordan - haaaa, here's one that is even better, bought both'a these to teach my twins photography for a buck apiece! That's even less than'a roll
Picked up three Holga 120's with defective shutters for 15 euro at Fotoimpex when I was in Berlin. Now I've got a 120CFN with working 1/100 shutter and a 120N with a pinhole thanks to a little frankensteining. Plus another lens which I modified the aperture on (something like f/8 now). A friend got the third camera in pieces (a 120FN with broken flash and bad shutter), we'll see what he makes of it. Got two expired Provia 100F from him. Pretty neat!

I got this one earlier this summer, a custom job Holga Pano from Randy at. Holgamods.com.
Only put one roll thru but have not printed or scanned the negs yet...
Hi, Nice camera! I like Holgamods.

Picked up this little "beauty". It's the best condition I've ever found a thrift store toy camera in. 50mm f/6 lens, plastic viewfinder (as usual on these kind of things), and a hot shoe. It came with a leather strap and a little plastic/leather case as well. The lens stops at f/6 (cloudy), f/8 (partly cloudly), f/11 (sunny), and f/16 (sunnier).
I haven't finished my roll of film yet, but I'll upload some photos once I do. I have an expired roll of 36 exposure Kodak Ultra Gold (100 ISO) loaded into it.
