    Hi,

    I found a new in box Ricoh 800 EES and a new in box Olympus XA at a local garage sale. They were sourced from a former camera store.

    I paid 40 USD for the Ricoh 800 EES and 70 USD for the Olympus XA. Was this a good deal? I'm looking to get in to film photography and wanted a decent camera to start my new hobby.

    The XA is a cult camera

    $70 for a new in box xa is a great deal if you do not want to spend hundreds of dollars in time going through thrift stores for one mispriced at $5. nice find. you're gonna love it. vignettes like crazy, so just embrace that.

    most recent sold on ebay, described as "good considering its [sic] used" which is far from "new in box" ...
