    Zeiss Ikon Nettar 515/2, 6x9 folding bellow camera for the grand price of £0.00. Given by a friend who found it in his attic, said it hadn't been used in 50 years and told me the shutter didn't fire. Turns out he had confused the lever that cocked the shutter with the self-timer, and a week later I had a set of immaculate prints from it.

    Connecticut has the same program, plus if you are veteran of any way After WWI you qualify as well. You have to pay student fees and actually buy the books and equipment for your classes (some students were just borrowing the books from the library)

    I got two degrees in Engineering on that program, I guess that is my best deal because I use that education to earn money to buy all kinds of stuff.

    Contax RTSIII with a 50 1.7 Planar for £125 - labelled Contax RTS with standard lens in a shop in Swansea. I just didn't have the heart to tell them that all 4 Contax RTS models simply carried the RTS logo. Also a 150mm lens mistaken for (and priced accordingly) a Mamiya 645 but which was actually for the Mamiya 7 from an online UK retailer.

    An almost complete darkroom setup for $150, everything from enlarger to hundreds upon hundreds of sheets of paper. So far I'v estimated all to be around $2000, maby more.

    I would have to put my Fujimoto Lucky 60M enlarger out there. Perfectly operational from an eBay seller for $48.00. That included s/h. And that was three years before I even geared up to enlarge. I knew I would use it anyway and even an infinite monkey would see it was too good a deal to not take a chance with it.
    Thank you.

    My wife has instructed me to write it was her, but at the time when were married in the mid 1960s a marriage licence cost the same as a dog licence, I think I made The right choice in this case, she was much quicker to house train.
