    I was driving along Union Blvd., minding my own business
    of course, and suddenly noticed a salvage shop. At that
    point I stopped minding my own business, and checked out
    their business. I looked through a box of chintzy P&S cameras,
    I was even tempted to add a Kodak Disc Camera to my collection.
    But I decided to add an Ansco Lancer { 127 }, Nikon N5005
    Body, and an Agfa Ventura 66 Deluxe { 120 & 220 } to the
    collection. The shop owner made me an offer that I refused,
    I offered $20.00 instead, being as the Nikon had a slight crack.
    And the Venturas bellows needs to be replaced, or covered with
    some electrical tape. Then we talked about Photography, and Film !
    And then asked me to come back next week, to take a look at some
    other cameras, and tripods that he obtained from an estate sale.

    I recently bought a nice Oly OM-1n body on here. I told my best friend I've decided to try some expressive photography and that I bought the body. He then asks if I want another one. He hasa complete OM-1n with two SC lenses, extra screens including a Beattie grid screen, filters and some 20 year old film. Friends are priceless, camera free.

    I wish people gave me cameras! I'm the only photographer in my entire family lineage. There have been cameras in the family along the way but no one knows where they've gone haha.

    Good morning, Steve;

    Your neighbor gave you a working Tessina 35 Auto L? You have a very good working relationship with your neighbor. He likes you.
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    When you guys mention thrift stores, are you talking about places like Goodwill and the Salvation Army? There is never anything in either of these locally, I assumed they just sold off the good stuff themselves

    I haven't had any luck with Goodwill, or the SA shops.
    And their items are never priced quite right. I always
    find great things at the Church, or Synagogue basement thrift shops.

    Too bad Scientology people, or Rastafarians don't have a thrift shop !

    I've seen a few decent things at Goodwill - e.g. darkroom trays in the kitchen plastic ware section .

    Nothing at Salvation Army stores though
