Not a camera, but an MD-4 for F3HP number three, picked up on that site for $6.41 USD. Judging by the pictures supplied, the drive looks to be in very nice shape.
An assortment of F-series Nikons (F to F6, excluding the F4) with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.
Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.
I have 2:
Newest Old Camera: Polaroid CU-5.
Slightly Older Newest Old Camera: Yashica Mat-124
At least now I know where they all are.

Yet another Olympus OM-4Ti body, I now have three, the king, an heir and a spare as well as numerous 1, 2's, and 2n bodies.
I'm into painting with light - NOT painting by numbers!

Two cameras: Agfa Karat 36, two different models, but both with a Scnheider-Kreuznach Xenon 1:2/50 mm lens.
On one camera the shutter works fine but sometimes refuses (stuck open whil cocking). Could this be easily fixed by myself?
The other seems fully functional. I loaded a test film.

Petri 7s. Bought yesterday for £15. Described as fully functional I soon discovered the frame counter was kaput. Never mind, I tend to shoot films by the roll rather than the frame! Not processed the HP5+ I ran through it, so I haven't proved yet my feeling the meter is consistently underestimating the light. It is a little beauty to handle, though, and I got two expressions of "cool camera" out of the folk on the streets of Manchester!
Sold my black Nikomat FTn and chrome FT2 at the PSPCS swap meet today. Alas, temptation was too much, (yes, Steve, ) and I replaced both with a pretty clean black FT2 that was being sold for $60, but was able to get it for $45. Next new old camera is going to be an old-new-old camera. Owned it in 2009, but had been kicking myself for selling it for the past five years. Black FT3. It needs some minor work, but still has a smoothly functioning meter. Will be picking it up from the current owner on Friday. It'll probably be the last camera to go in for servicing, behind the second F2AS, which is headed to Sover Wong, the pair of FT2's (one of which is waiting for pickup), the FM2n, and the F. It's useable as is, but the slow speeds are dead. Got a working shutter from a junked FT2 that I can provide Camera Clinic with, when they overhaul it.
APUG: F2AS x2, F, FM2n, Nikomat FTn
Nikkors: 18-70/3.5-4.5G AF-S DX (f/D200), 20/3.5 UD, 24/2.8 AI, 50/2 AI, 50/1.4 AI, 50/1.4 S, 55/2.8 Micro AIS, 85/1.8 K, 135/3.5 QC

Jeez, where do I start? Last week I bought 4 cameras from local thrift stores:
Polaroid 104 with original case and 2 Model 268 flash units - $5.
Pentax ZX-7 with 28-80 lens, manual, and case - $15. My wife likes it.
Sony Mavica MVC-FD88 - $6.50. I know it's digital, but it records on 3.5 floppys which was just too funky for me to pass up. It came with a battery but no charger, so I ordered one from eBay.
And my big score: Canon FT with Canon 55mm f1.2, Vivitar 24mm wide angle, and a Vivitar 90-230 telephoto zoom (which I'll likely never use.) $33 for the whole set.
