    I can buy a Canon AE-1 35mm SLR Camera with Lens for $60 not sure what condition it is in. I want to mess with it and probably just save it unti lit gets really old. Smart Or Stupid?

    It's worthless if it doesn't work. The condition of used camera equipment has a large bearing on it's value. Buying, without knowing it's condition, would be stupid, IMO.

    The AE-1 was a very popular camera in it's day and Canon sold bunches of them.

    There are butt loads of them out there and will be for many years to come.

    make sure you can return it if it is broken...... but this applies for everything you buy AS IS, you need to know at least if it works!
