The Best Cameras Are From Flea Markets
Some of the best cameras I have came from Flea Markets, Estate Sales, and Yard Sales.
35mm is being suplanted by Digital, but is still popular among photobuffs and people taking snapshots.
I got a Nikon One Touch from St. John The Baptist Orthodox Church for $2.00 at the rummage sale. Nice little point-and-shoot, probably from the 80\'s. It takes sharp pictures with its autofocus lens. Only thing I had not counted on is it takes a lithium
battery that cost $7.00.
I tried to stay away from these, but I thought it took aa cells.
So for under $10.00 I got a neat little camera.
I also got another older Nikon
Action Touch. This is also an Auto-focus camera of maybe late 70s early 80s vintage. It is big and heavy. It even lets you set the distance from the subject instead of AF if you want to.
Lets not forget the Kowaflex I got. It has a great lens. But the lightmeter works best in bright sun.
I also have several other ones, like a Fuji Panoramic model, and another point-and-shoot Fuji that I am testing.
Maybe the best part is that these cameras are expendable.
