    Yes, I understand. My point was.... for that student, it wasn't anything special. WE understand and appreciate these qualities. Also, we were there when those cameras were new. We either have seen them or lusted our heart on them. For vast majority students, it's just an old camera.

    Heck, if I can find a mint quality black OM-10 that doesn't have the dreaded electrical problem, I'd get one in a heart beat!
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    Ah, that makes sense. He might sell it, and that's perfectly fine. But maybe he'll keep it knowing it's special. If he has any interest in film photography it would be a good starter camera.

    I've told a buddy it was OK with me if he sold or donated some of the cameras he fell into, but hold onto the Rolleiflex cause it's special.
