    eBay causes problems in this respect. Charity shops (and other sellers) see a perfect example of something worth having sell for £100 on eBay and then put the same tag on their knocked-about knackered example with a Prinz/Chinon/Bottombottlar lens.

    I bought a Voigtlander Bessa II with a Heliar at a thrift shop for $14. No I'm not telling you which one- that is my little secret.

    You can be as secretive as you'd like... we all know the Bessa is gone.

    Now I'm going to have to start looking up in Tacoma! :P
    Only crappy P&S cameras in Olympia/Lacey.

    I've come across the odd point-and-shoot camera at the local charity shop from time to time, but nothing really too exciting. However, there is an 'antiques emporium' not far from me which has various folder cameras, but prices seem to be around the 20 to 30 pound mark. The only SLR I can recall in here was a Pentax MV with 50mm f/2 lens which I think was priced at £10.

    The thrift stores in my area run hot and cold. A few months ago, I got a Nikon R8 Super 8mm cine camera for $25 and a Vivitar slide printer for $5. For the past few months there's been nothing but P&S cameras and overpriced box cameras.

    I've been lucky so far in my area. There's the usual 35mm P&S but I've been able to find a Canon EF, Pentax K1000, Olympus XA2 and a Yashica T4D Super. I go every couple of weeks or so just to see what's available and been surprised by what I've found.
