    I recently picked up two vintage 35mm cameras for $1.. yep... one buck! I got an Exakta VX500 with a 50mm Exaktar lens, and a Neoca Range Finder. The Exakta is in great shape, a little brassing on the body, but mechanically sound. It sounds like a freekin cannon going off when you use a slow shutter speed... can you say mirror slap?!@#? I have been able to find a little info on the Exakta online, but nothing on the Neoca. Anyone have any 411 for me?

    Don't have any info, but I once found an extremely clean Canon AE-1 with an almost mint lens for $10 at a yard sale.

    I think there's an Exacta users group on Yahoo!Groups. There's also a rangefinder group on Topica where some collector might know something about the Neoca.

    There is an Exakta group on topica.com,
    and a good site on www.ihagee.org, if you haven't found it yet.

    I went to the church rummage sale and saw a camera bag that said 65.00.

    I looked and immediately plunked 65 dollars down. It was a pristine Nikonis III with 2 lenses. It also had a new Minolta Maxum TTL flash.

    I sold the flash to my local minolta dealer for 60 bucks.

    Net cost - $5.00.
