    I like those Jack-in-the-box flash reflectors. But those Olympus "waver" reflectors are unique.

    That large Olympus would have been as must have at the fleamarket. Never seen it before.

Seems hipsters have a way of inflating a market quickly...

    Not calling you a hipster, btw, just making some observations, lol!
    I never saw young people buying a camera at the fleamarket. Actually hardly anybody...

    But you don't need a seperate battery for each camera. As you won't use several cameras the same time.

    And there are not that many batteries types used. Modern p&s cameras take 6 different batteries at the most. And often there are working batteries still inside.

    I have bought thrift-store cameras just for the batteries in them, because they are more expensive than the cameras.

    You can call me a hipster anytime. At 54, that's a serious complement.

    In fact, I have a Pandora station named Post Modern Hipster. http://www.pandora.com/station/play/1379653738859215215

    I've owned SLRs and Autofocus Point and Shoots concurrently since 1985 or so. My first P&S was an Olympus Quick Shooter AFL-S. I used it often for in-the-house family photos or just when I didn't want to take the SLR along - parties, etc. It gave up the ghost in the mid 90s after being dropped and abused for years.

    I've also added one more since posting this a few days ago: a Ricoh FF-3AF. One just like this: Click image for larger version.

ID:	78392 It's a heavy little dude.

    And I'm planning to do a comparison shoot of the 4 non-zoom AFs: Nikon L35AF2, Canon AF35ML, Fujica DL-100, and Ricoh FF-3AF. I'll post it after later this month as I'm getting a scanner for Christmas.

    Nice collection! I have a newfound soft spot for the early 80's first generation 35mm point and shoots, especially Canon AF35M's M-II's and ML's.
    Tri-X in HC-110 forever.

    Yea, me too. Most of the first generation P&Ss are built like bricks and have decent lenses.

    Im not quite young, but in my 30's so still young to many. I buy quite a few cameras and bits of gear at flea markets actually. Often times, very expensive gear for stupid cheap prices! Managed to snag a Nikkor 50 f/1.8 AF like new in the box for $20, a couple nice Tamrac bags for $7 combined, many cameras all for under $20ea. filters, tripods, speedlights, and other goodies! But im a dedicated bargain hunter, going 40 times a year or so.
