Collectors, any on here?
« on: November 26, 2008, 07:07:26 AM »

Does anyone else on here collect cameras?

I can easily group mine into 2 categories

1 Cameras so cheap that I can't refuse (I got a spotmatic for $5 and i've even been given a few 'useless old' cameras

2 Cameras which I can see myself using a fair amount which cost a bit more (picked up a nice RB67)

3 Cameras which are worth a lot to collectors which I can sell on.

Sad to say I've collected a fair number of all too recent model digital cameras that now fall into your category 1 :  Cameras so cheap I can't refuse...'useless old cameras'

Hmm at the risk of being nostalgic... the spotmatic had some lovely lenses to go with it ... you could always spot (groan) a shot taken with the 35mm ... can't remember the exact name of it...  

I took this with my Dad's spotmatic in the early 80's ... school production of Juno and the Paycock... little did I know I'd be doing it professionally 20 or so years later.
