Nikon FM, free from a co-worker. No lens (I have a couple), he shoots Nikon digital, but has no desire to shoot film ever again.

I was out picking through something else entirely at a thrift store, and noticed a clean looking Minolta sitting in a case. I asked to look at it, saw the price was 6.99, and though "cool!"
Well, nothing worked.
I had the lady dig up a couple boxes with some older digital P&S cameras, and was about to thank her and walk away when she said, "Oh, here's one kind of like that first one."
From a tan bag, she pulled out an X700 with a 50/1.7 lens on it, a 28/2.8 lens, a 2x teleconverter, Minolta flash, a bunch of caps, and manuals for everything. The camera also has a leather cover, and the price sticker read $60.00. But... the sticker was blue, and today the %30 discount was applied to blue and green stickers (gotta love those scattershot discounts).
The camera seemed to work fine, the battery was good and the shutter sounded fine... I think there's film in it too, which piques my curiosity. I wanna see what's already exposed!
So... $40 for the above.
One bad thing, though... the camera bag was disintegrating, and a black rubbery substance needs to be cleaned from the surface of everything. Luckily there were caps on the lenses and the camera was in its leather case.
...upon closer inspection, the two lenses appear to have some mild fungus in 'em. The camera body itself was immaculate inside, and the shutter curtain seemed to be right on, though I didn't have the ability to exactly gauge its speed. So, now I'll have to either clean that fungus out, find another lens (wiping out my "good deal"), or... I don't know.

got a pentax mx and the 50mm f/1.4 lens for $5. They are in excellent condition except that the flash sync doesn't work. It won't fire a flash either with hot shoe or the x sync terminal. The FP sync worked.
