I haven't shopped actively for film cameras, cause I've mostly been shooting for the last 2-3 years or so.

But it seems like the good film cameras have increased in price a LOT.

I was looking for 35 rc, olympus mju, XA or a canonet. Everything hovers around 80 bucks. A few years ago it was no problem to get it under 30.

Are more people shooting film? What's the deal?

Fortunately the pentax K1000 is still around 40 bucks with lens and the FEDs and KIEVs.
