..........are certainly creating some killer Film SLR deals. I was in a Trade It store in NC. They had redone the camera section and had taken out all of the film cameras from the display and put them all on a clearance display. Amongst all the point and shoots and the cheapo cameras that could have easily been sold as Lomography cameras, there sat a Pentax ME, a K 1000 and a Canon EOS Rebel X with EOS 30-80 lens, a Vivitar 3500 flash and carry bag for $14.99. Both Pentax were 19.99. I'm 52 years old and I'm thinking back of how much these cost back in the day. I told the sales associate that they were giving away some great gear. I was told that "nobody uses those anymore and you can't buy film for them". This kid, excuse me -associate couldn't have been out of her teens. I told her I like collecting old stuff and she smiled. Easiest $14.99 and tax I ever gave away. Went across the street to Walgreens and purchased and installed 2 new DL123 batteries. She came right to life and works perfectly. I just have to shake my head. Maybe I'm just in the wrong world but I just don't get it. I have a similar problem with folks giving away perfectly good CRT televisions and monitors. Bought an HP v72 Monitor from the same store in box for $1.99 w/a 90 day warranty.
