    ...an Olympus??? When I was a wee lad and desired a candy bar, I had to beg my mother to buy me one! I had no idea what an "Olympus" was!

    I have a camera problem. I can not stop buying thrift store and garage sale cameras. Usually they are cheaper than a roll of film.
    I also have a lot of "dead format" cameras.
    Get real I'm never going to use my Ansco Pioneer. But it came with a lot of flash bulbs that i gotta have for 10 bucks.
    So is my Argus 75 for $5 dollars. and My Kodak Tourist II for 75 cents. I have to rescue them!!
    But there are camera that I use from those sales. 9 dollar Petri 7S. 10 dollar Olympus Pen EE. 30 dollar Minolta 7000. I can not refuse. Once again, i have to rescue them....

    I was taking photography classes at summer camp when I was 8 or 9, and the teacher had one. I was using an Argus, and my dad's old Silette.
