    Recently I've been reacquiring samples of the camera gear I grew up with and assembling a little diorama. It's sort of a timeline of my own path as a photographer, starting in 1968 with a borrowed Argus C3. My favorite is the little green book 'Amateur Photography' that I originally got at Radio Shack, which taught me the basics.

    Leica mini II, Leica Z2X, Olympus RC35: 10 euros each. Keeping the Leicas, RC35 goes on big auction site - probably will pay off all 3 cameras until the end of auction. So probably 2 Leicas for free !

    Hey! I still use two of those! The C-3 I bought new after the holidays in 1957, and the A-1 I bought in 1981. Cool display, like the camera mounts.

    They are cheap security camera mounts. Only $1.30 each from Monoprice.com

    I found four Folmer Graflex wood frame 4x5 sheet film holders at... $2.00 each. All very serviceable once I swabbed away the grunge.

    I've had better luck at the swap meets in the area than I have any of the thrift stores, but I've found some good stuff at the thrift stores too. GIII Canonet for $10, XA for $5 or nearly that, nice Bogen tripod+head that I still use for $5, another one I sold: got it for $10 or $15, so paid for the other. Passed on an XA2 for $15 which was a mistake. Lots of wacky prices on stuff lately: beat up, non-working (film transport nor RF) Yashica RF for $85 was one recent low point.

    Over the course of the last 12 months I've found some amazing things at my local Goodwill;

    - Omega D-2, complete and ready for 4x5 (needed some minor repairs) $25
    - Vivitar slide projector, like new, in the original box (medical training slides were still in the tray, ick!) $6.99
    - Olympus Stylus $2.99
    - Polaroid Land model 215, in leatherette case, with flash and spare bulbs $12.99
    - Patterson developing trays for 11x14, unused $1.99 (x2)
    - Bogen two blade easel $3.99
    - Sekonic Leader light meter, with leather case $19.99
    - Time-O-Lite enlarger timer, like new $5.99
    - Olympus XA with A-11 flash, pristine cosmetic condition but not working $2.99
    - Two dozen filters, mostly 55mm but some 49mm as well (colored, special effects, polarizers, ND, etc.) $12.99

    The pickings have been poor in the last month or so though.
