I would spend a good deal. Prob. up to around $1,800 or so for a nice Sinar P2 8x10, although I am hoping to just get the back end and bellows for much less. I will spend money on film cameras as long as I think I will actually shoot with them, and as long as film is made. I am looking to purchase in the next several years a couple of EOS film bodies (3s, 1Vs, 1Ns, 1N-RSs). I am also planning on purchasing an RB, as well as a more modern M645 body, like a Pro or Pro TL. Eventually I would like to get rid of my B&J Grover 8x10 and get an 8x10 back end for my Sinar 4x5 instead. I might even go ahead and just sell it now. The new Fuji folder interests me. So does the Fly Blackbird Fly. I would not pay as much as is being asked for either of the last two I mentioned, however. If the FBF comes down to under $100, fine. If there ever was a time to buy used film cameras, now is it!
The state of film has nothing to do with how much I would spend. The camera's bang for the buck and probable frequency of use would matter. If they get rid of any more color films, I might just have to leave a flaming bag on their doorstep, however....They have cut pretty much everything they can cut without simply giving up completely. We have several kinds of Velvia, two kinds of Provia, one Astia, one tungsten, and four Pro color neg emulsions left. I cant see any of these being cut while still being able to claim that they offer a film for every need. It is totally frustrating to me that they offer a few Velvias (which I very rarely desire), but they have no high speed tungsten film (which I desire pretty much 75% of the time that I shoot).
