    When was the last time you bought a "new" 35mm film camera?

    Just to put things into perspective, it would be interesting to find out when you have bought your last "new" from a dealer 35mm camera.

    I am assuming by new you mean factory new and not just new to you, a Mamiya NC1000S in 1984, great camera, shutter priority auto and manual, but difficulty finding lenses w/o mail ordering them caused me to trade it in on a Minolta X700

    My F-1N is still working fine since I bought it new around 1983. Why would I need a new one?

    The last new camera I purchased was over 14 years ago, WAY over 14 years ago, in fact I think it was 1976 in my camera class, of course I did not pay for it, it was part of the curiculum and my parents paid for it!!!!

    So I don't remember the last time I bought a new camera.........

    Factory new Canon A2 in 2000 after being away from photography for 18 years. Prior to that an A1 in 1982 before I went to WKU to major in photojournalism. While in the Navy ('86-90) I had stolen from me: the A1 with motordrive MA, 200mm f/4 (i believe), 100mm, 28mm, Domke bag.

    I wonder how many people forgot they bought a digital camera?

    Wayne,

    Not this one, I have never bought a digital camera!

    I know what a film camera is used for and don't have any interest in keeping up with the Jones..

    And I have to say, I don't consider a digital capture device a "camera" at least not by definitions...

    No more to say about digital on my part.

    I bought a new Nikon N80 in 2000 for a trip I was making to Jordan. My usual LF gear was too big, and as I was going on a tour, not practical, although on hindsight, I wish I had taken it.

    I bought a Coolpix 990 around five years ago (had some grant money that was going to run out, and I figured I could use it for archiving documents, which I do), but the question was about 35mm film cameras.
