This past weekend, I dragged myself out of bed early to go to a camera swap meet with Peter. Didn’t expect to find anything (we did bump into Reilly) but ended up finding this camera in near mint condition, complete with box, manual and even the warranty card for $15:
Why is this a good thing? This camera came out in the late 90’s and was generally considered to be junk. The cool thing (to me) is that it’s a fun little film camera that fully supports all the Nikon lenses I already have. This means I can play with my fisheye lens on a film camera for only $15. I found out that APS film (slightly smaller than 35mm film) is still quite plentiful around town and that everyone that sells it seems to process it. While not the best scans ever, I can quickly get a roll developed and scanned to CD for the grand total of $2.99 at Shoppers Drug Mart.
It even had a roll of partially exposed film inside! Aside from a few blurry photos taken inside the swap meet, nothing interesting was on the film roll so Peter and I took advantage and used up the rest of the roll for some goofy photos outside the swap meet with the fisheye lens:
Film is still fun!
Update: 2nd roll is back from the lab. Check out my Pronea-S flickr set for more photos.
