Go Grab A Bargain

For the film photographer there is at the moment a huge variety of cameras to be had at next to nothing prices. On Ebay there are thousands of analogue cameras for sale and if you are prepared to spend some time feeling out the market and picking out the reputable sellers, there are some amazing good deals to be had.

I picked up the Minolta Hi-Matic E on a local auction site for R200 (less than $20). It's in mint condition and performs as well as I'm sure it did when it was new some (approx) 35 years ago. It seems possible to pick up a good copy on Ebay for about the same price. For those of you with this camera or potental buyers of this camera, the full user manual is on-line
