Today I went out with the little guy – my son Balder – to have a look at an – as good as – local thrift shop.
It’s only open the first Saturday, off every month. But I always find something awesome there, or at least at can’t remember coming home from a trip without at least one new “old” camera.
And today was no different, I manage to get my hands on a Minolta SRT 101, Miranda Sensomat RE (with a 50mm f1.4 lens attached) and a Minolta 7s rangerfinder camera. Two lenses a Minolta 45mm f2 and a Dixi 35mm f2.8 (Minolta mount), and to top it all off I also got 2 rolls of expired 35mm film. And all that for 250 Dkr (around $39)
Now I’m looking forward to see if they are working 100%. I can only check the shutter and so when I’m in the shop. I can’t check if the lightmeter is working, before I get home and up at my loft, where all my tools and batteries are, hopefully I get to do that tomorrow.
Ohh and since the little one was with me today, we ended up with a good handful of toy cars for him as well, only fair that if dad get’s new toys, he should as well 🙂
