Indeed, when I was a wee lad and desired an Olympus, there was no way I could pay for it. Now I can get one for a (relatively) trivial amount of money, because of increased earning power, depreciation of the gear, and decades of inflation.
...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....
