maninga5-deactivated20131101: Hey awesome finds, I just wanted to know if you could give me some advice on what to look for in regards to cameras. I am very interested in collecting and using vintage cameras but have no idea where to start. Thanks!
  • Check your local thrift store every so often because you never know what they’ll put out.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask the workers if there any cameras hidden.
  • Do research on the cameras you buy. Through trial and error, you’ll know if you scored a camera at a decent price or not.
  • Have a decent amount of knowledge on cameras. If you’re going to be doing this, then you must know a lot about a camera. Example: Shutter working, battery corrosion, fungus haze or dust in lens, oily aperture blades, etc.

Anonymous: I have the exact same hobby! Just out of curiosity, where do you find space to store all your finds and how do you organize them? :)

Haha nice! I have a couple of containers where I store my finds. But they move in and out of my collection. Whenever I need money, I have to sell something :(
