    Went to a photo sale listed on Craigslist. It ended up being a studio that was closing. Had a good time talking to the older guy that owned it. Bought a 50mm f2.8 EL-Nikkor for $10. He had a large box with a bunch of of old 8x10 paper boxes in it, mostly Panalure, that he said I could have for free. Looked inside and saw a box that said Tech Pan. Got it home and it turned out to be an unopened box of 8x10 Tech Pan dated 2005. Since I don't have a 8x10 and just sold my 4x5, I put the box out on the market. In 3 days sold it for $300!

    You Did Well !

    But, this morning I stopped by the thrift shop and picked up
    a Pentax IQ Zoom 115M, with mini tripod, and case for $3.00 !

    I amazed by what people consider to be worthless.

    I'm debating on a craigslist pickup right now. It's 2 Canon A-1 bodies with motor drives, 5 lenses (4 of which are canon, and at least a couple primes I gather), looks like a flash, and who knows what else for $200. I tried to haggle with the guy sight unseen over email but he won't budge on his asking price haha.

    Should I go for it?

    Those Canon A cameras have this thing that looks like a flash but is really a remote control shutter trigger.

    You sell the winder alone and you'll make back half that price. I think that's a good deal!

    Well I met up with the guy and picked up the lot. There were a couple good things but I thought it had the motor drives not just the Winder A2.


    Canon A1 Craigslist Find by Abram Goglanian, on Flickr
    Regardless. I can keep what I like and sell off the rest

    Here's what was in the bag:

    2x A-1 bodies, both with A2 winders (both need a decent cleaning)
    2x FDn 50mm f/1.8 (both pretty clean)
    1 - FDn 28mm f/2.8 (pretty clean)
    1 - FDn 35-105 f/3.5 (a couple small scratches on the front element, otherwise just cleaned up nicely, stoked on this one!)
    1 - Tokina FD 60-120mm f/2.8 w/ 2x TC (Kind of an interesting lens, I think I'll hang on to it for my m4/3 kit)
    1 - Canon Speedlight 177a
    1 - Canon Speedlight 244T
    1 - Ricoh Meter (kinda weird, never seen one before but could be useful on a meterless camera)
    Miscellaneous accessories were also in the bag
