    Default Goodwill, Salvation Army, Thrift

    How often does one find cameras in there?
    I hear its like a gold mine for old working film cameras.


    Is that shit true?

    I guess it depends on the store, but i plan to check a few out to see what i can get.

    Has anyone found quality photography shit there?

    Whether it be old, shitty, new etc

    there are always cool cameras at my local Goodwill. I bought some Polaroids that work great, and a Canon T50 with a 35 f2.8 lens and a flash for good prices.

    I've got a few things from my local one. An xa2 with flash and case for $7, a fun little panorama camera brand new for $3, and a few other sick little cameras for super cheap.

    Go for it. It's always fun to see what's in there.

    It's a beautiful state, man. I dig it. It's mostly just the people in my town. And the fact that its craigslist is terrible. Haha.

    Kansas is 10x better.

    It had one shot left, and I guess it would have been cool to get the film dev'd and see some cool shit on it, but I had a feeling it'd be more of a fail then a win.

    Exploring?

    CAVE EXPLORING?!





    Yeah But I've been having fun shooting recently haha, but the new Konica is such a different system than my last camera so it's irritating.


    They had that Micky mouse cam at goodwill, the one where it looks like he's holding his butt open.

    This one.
