We both have a Sony a7rII, that we like to put old – and new – lenses on. And I also like to look for old cameras.
We visited four stores, and I found cameras that I liked, in three of them.
I found as follows.
- Olympus AF-1
I already got one – and sold one earlier – but I know I can properly exchange it for a roll of film or two at my local camera pusher. It also had a working CR-P 2 battery – 25 Dkr. ($3,75).
- Voigtländer VITO CLR
That’s pretty beat up, but the lightmeter and rangefinder is working, but unfortunately the shutter isn’t.
It had a half used film inside, that I can use for my art project – 20 Dkr. ($3).
- Olympus AZ-220 Widezoom
The camera seems to work, but it’s not a camera I’m gonna keep. Bought it because it had a film inside and two working CR123A Batteries and it was cheap – 25 Dkr. ($3,75).
- LXI AF
I never heard of the camera before, I thought it was a Yashica, because it was in a small leather bag with Yashica written on it. It takes two AA batteries, but I think there’s something wrong with the connections, It turns on and off. I might give a go at fixing it, because I think it’s a pretty cool looking camera, and it has a 35mm f:2.8 lens – 7,50 Dkr ($1,13)
So all in all I think it was a pretty good catch, and for me it’s just as much the thrill of the hunt as the actual catch.
Here's the rest of the catch
