    I bought my Olympus XA at a church sale for $3. I also found a nice Rollei XF 35 for $7.95 - these are vastly overpriced.

    Last year, I bought six folding cameras for $300. All were in excellent condition, except one that needs its lens helicals relubed. The six are Super Isolette; Isolette III with an f/3.5 Solinar; Super Ikonta 531/2 (6x9) with a coated Zeisss-Opton Tessar; Certo 6 with a coated Jena Tessar; Balda Six and a Bessa I (6x9) with a coated Skopar.

    More recently, from eBay: A Contax III with a working meter; Olympus 35 RC; and Agfa Optima Ia for $49. And then a clean working Rolleiflex SL35 body for $50.

    Not a great deal in terms of pennies on the dollar... but a game-changer...

    One of my most significant garage sale finds was a 6-foot stainless steel sink for $50. He had a speed graphic too, but I didn't exactly need another camera. Not as much as I needed that sink.

    Once when I was dead broke in college, I was looking at one of those cases of junked cameras that they often have at antique stores. Lots of contaflexes, overpriced, and undoubtedly dead, Instamatics, a 2x3 graphic, a Ricoh or two. Then I saw in the back a little dumpy silver SLR- Miranda, Orion Camera Company.

    I bought a GS-1 with the profits.

    In the last two years, I've found two Polaroid Miniportrait cameras - the 203 two lens model and the 403 four lens model - and a Polaroid Spectra MB, all in working condition, for a total of about 8 bucks (I live in Tokyo, so 800 yen). The Spectra was 100 yen in the rummage shop near my house.

    Recently found another Olympus 35RC in a box of old camera stuff at a garage sale. Cost for box was $20. The 35RC is in excellent condition, and everything works properly! The box also contained several packages of M2 and M3 flash bulbs, which I am putting to good use!

    I just picked up a very nice Mamiya 330 pro tlr. A good price, certainly not a steal. Also included 80mm and 55mm lenses, Luna-pro S, various filters, all in a Lowepro trekker aw backpack. Also picked up a Super Multi Coated Takumar 50mm f1.4. I will have to look into a Spotmatic F. I used to have one. Great camera.
    Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.

    Found a barely working Contaflex Super (old) at a yard sale. After a teardown and service it is now fully working.. I was even able to get the meter working again...

    I got a Nikkormat FTn with a 50mm Nikkor Auto-S 1.4 lens for five dollars about a week ago.
