    Nice! Canon sure sold a lot of those AE-1s. Great cameras.

    Nice catch!

    In the past month or so I've picked up two Olympus XA's both working and a Nikkor Series E 50mm. All from thrift stores.
    -Ive been looking for a good working XA for quite some time. And here i got lucky twice. One must be a more recent date, because even the seals are in good shape.

    To the average person, that old XA (or XA4) looks just like any other old compact film camera (which you can't get film for any more!) So £1 or $1 at an outdoor sale is all they expect from it.

    At a local Goodwill store (charity shop for those over the pond,) a rather used Olympus Stylus for $1.50. Put in a battery and a roll of cheap film and just got the film back from the drug store last night. Works perfectly! Very spiffy pocket camera and whomever designed the outer shell did a wizard job of fitting it to the human hand.

    Picked up a pentax ME-Super with a flash and some other lenses.
    The ME-super is dead. The flash is a vivitar 283 but its dead as well. -Did have 2 vivitar flash cords which i actually need yay!.
    A albinar 80-200mm. But the gem is a Pentax SMC 50mm-M f1.4. Nice!

    I picked this up at a thrift store. When I walked up to the counter a guy was already checking out the cameras. They had just put a bunch out for sale. I asked for the ugly old brown leather bag and he asked for the newer black nylon. He passed on the plastic vivitar camera it contained.

    I have recently sold a few things I wasn't using. I was very surprised when the bids for this went up to £60!!

    During the last months I've found two Stylus Epic/Mju II, in great condition, on flea-markets, total cost - 14 euros ... I see they go on ebay for 100 eur a pcs. and now after getting the first rolls of c41 shot with them back from development I think I'll drop them on theBay, way too automatic for my choice, the shots look great but I don't like the "workflow" (full auto) on these cute lil machines.

    For $20, a Yashica FX-3 from Goodwill, with 50mm f/2 ML lens. The body needs new leather and seals, but camera and lens are otherwise beautiful and perfectly functional. The lens in particular is practically mint. I'm looking forward to recovering the camera body.
