    Something I recently stumbled across that may interest those of us who read threads like this one. Goodwill now has an auction site of their own, and it seems to list cameras in Goodwill stores all over the US. I was wondering why I almost never see cameras in Goodwill anymore. Looks like there are some deals to be had...

    I recently paid $20 in an antique shop for an almost-mint Mamiya-Sekor 50mm f/3.5 E Macro lens, with matching 1:1 extension. It was in a box full of slide projector lenses (which, thankfully, I did not have to buy as well). Needed a cleaning - and now I need a camera to use it on.

    I have been dealing with them for several years now. I have obtained a few fine lenses. The description of the condition of some of the lenses varies from store to store but it is an honest appraisal. Sometimes they only ship with UPS which can get quite expensive since I live in a different country.

    They're just jealous. Maybe you could rent a PO box across the border?
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– “Wow! What a Ride!”

    I found an Minolta SRT, 50mm 1.4 and a 135mm lens with a pouch for $14 at a local thrift store. Keep in mind this was before the recession. Since then, finds in other house hold items are much tougher to be had.

    My first 'the one that got away'? An unlabeled camera grab bag on Goodwills online site yesterday. Looking at the fuzzy pictures, there were a pair of Canonets (17 and 28) in it along with a bunch of less interesting cameras. It went for $20.

    Yeah I saw that one too, it was temping, but I was worried that it was just away for Goodwill to dump non functioning cameras.

    Might as well have been. Got an as-is sr-T101 for $5+ s/h from sleezebay. Hot shoe bustitated. Shutter would not advance. Timer would not cycle through. Took a paper clip and worked it into the shutter cable port, ratcheted the film crank a couple of times. Good as new. Excepting the hot shoe and the timer of course. Could care less.
    Thank you.

    A friend tipped me off to a black Minolta Hi-Matic 7s at a newly opened consignment store (year-round multi-family garage sale w/business hours) in the area. So I picked it up and, for $25, it was pretty nice. However, I opened my big mouth by calling my friend to thank him and to give him a more complete rundown of the camera since he just gave it a quick look when he saw it. I also asked if he was sure he wanted to pass on it. Well, now he wants it. But that's okay. I'll drop it off tomorrow. In the meantime, I took a few of pics of it (one is attached here).
