    hmmm. it seems pretty spot on for my yashica minister-d, from my own personal serching. ranging from $10 bottom end, to $50 pristine. however, my other camera, a pentax p30t, it states as $140 low end average, all the way up to $340 for top notch.... this seems really high, i found a couple for sell online in decent working condition for around $30 or so....... am i missing something?

    ^ No, you're not missing anything.

    $340 for a P30T these days is wild fiction.

    I have been trying to post a question about a Balda camera, but it is not here.
    It appears on the page when I post it, but when I come back to see if there is an answer, it is gone.
    Can someone explain why this is happening?

    Yeah, I moved your post in a more visible and appropriate thread. If you care to search for it you will find it. If not, here's a hint: Click here.

    Yeah, not too many Diax for sale right now. If sound mechanically and optically as well as good cosmetically, your Diax Ia might be worth just under $100.

    pufferr, if you'll read the first post in this topic, the link shows at least two sales and the conditions of those sold cameras. Even though the sales were from 2006/2007, the values didn't change a lot. Mitica100 is right on the price.

    Glad I stumbled on this! I paid $13 for my '81 Minolta X-700. I think its a win win situation there.

    Hey, I managed to get my hands on an Agfa 5x7/4x5 view camera recently. I know this thread is about pricing collectible cameras but I figured this might be a good place to start looking for some info on the lens that came with it. I found a sales brochure and a couple people talking about the manufacturers but not much else.
    The lens is a Pinkham and Smith Visual Quality #2 Series IV serial #2854 with a #3 studio shutter.
    Any info about or related would be much appreciated.

    Hi there - I'm interested in how much this camera might be worth. Stereo/mono tailboard mahogany camera.
    Lens is a Eurygonal from Rodenstock, probably original to this camera. Again, a better class anastigmat - extremely fast F3.8.
    Quality and condition look good.
