Latest 35mm (RF, P&S or SLR) purchase
Mine: Graflex Graphic 35 on eBay last night. If it works will be a lot of fun as I am in Rochester, NY. If it does not - well, thems the breaks! (Anyone know anyone that can do a CLA on it if I want to use it?)

My most recent 'purchase' is a Canon P Rangefinder from a fellow APUGer.
Color Film always existed. It's just the world was always black and white till recently.
Mine was an SRT101 on eBay in March. I'm glad I got it. I don't use a battery so I need a light meter and this slows my photographic process down. I know my XG-M's are not point and shoots, but they are close enough.

Bought 3 "broken" SLR's on ebay for $14.50 with shipping and got a Nikon FG that only needed fresh batteries to work. Just bought a disposable kodak to take to halloween party at my fav bar since last time I took one of my good cameras in there, a red head that bore a remarkable resemblence to Kirstin Dunstz spilled her beer on it.
Canon F-1 (original), in really fantastic shape, serial number under 150,000. Had a CLA done and new light seals put in, and this tank has been a joy to use. Though the relative unavailability of PX625 replacement batteries that give correct voltage has lead me to use it sans battery, so no light meter. The results have been wonderful thus far, as it appears my eye is doing me justice these days.

Bromo: The grandfather of my partner at work designed the Speed Graphic... if it doesn't work, maybe we can work on a solution!
My latest purchase was an Olympus 35LC, which went to Camtech on LI for a CLA ... took two attempts as the RF was very stubborn, but it's working very well now and I shot with it last night at Johnny's. The VF isn't as nice as the 35SP, but the shutter is much quieter/more pleasant than the SP.
Also shot with the 35SP and an XA last night ... Oly mania!
Sonic: The F1 is superb... if I were to get a Canon SLR, that would be the one.
Honey, I promise no more searching eBay for cameras.

Sorry it's in caps, I am lazy and just copied and pasted it from the bid. I won it for $20.50 and payed like $8.00 for shipping, now just for it get here
it's a 80-200MM lense, and if anyone has example pictures of what a 80-200mm lense can do, please post!
Mint camera & case. Cool shooter.
ALWAYS check out your local Sally Ann or other thrift store. I've picked up a Yashica A, Zenit , Zorki, and numerous P&S. All for the price of a cup of joe.
Olympus XA last month (XA2 a couple of weeks before that).
