$16 with two days left. I bet it still goes for $70-80 after the snipe in the last .001 seconds.

Fancy. The zoo in Syracuse just holds a photo contest every year, since expanded to all county parks. And they use photos from members, which I am not.

Even if it's easily removable, I've never bought a Minolta SRT that had a working meter (that corrodes too). I have Minolta XG series cameras, only one works. My Hi-Matic 7s did have a working meter. Same goes for Konica Auto Reflex Ts (there's one of those just around the corner from me for $55. Guy says it works great, who knows if he even put a battery in it.)

So $200 for a camera that will most likely need to be repaired...

Spots in pictures from my SMC PENTAX DA 18-55 lens

A M lens will not stop down if you are shooting in Av mode. It will only stop down if you are shooting in M mode. Make sure Using Aperture ring is set to permitted in the custom menu, set the camera to M mode, and use the Green Button to get a meter reading.

Nishika's have appreciated in value quite a bit since that blog post was made...



If you click the link on the page the item that comes up is $359.99. The best price from other sellers is $199.95 after shipping. The most expensive is $599. IIRC they are popular because you can scan the 4 images to make an animated GIF.

Incorrect EXIF has been a problem in the past with PPG. The site still has to be able to read the camera type from EXIF.

The photo I uploaded yesterday has already been approved.

"Let's just slip in the mercury battery corrosion in the the middle somewhere. Maybe they'll be so stunned by how insanely overprices it would be in perfect condition they won't notice".

Cambridge was one if the shadiest NY camera sellers.

If you actually called they would probably try to sell you a rebadged Zenit and one of their Cambron lenses.

They are telling you up front how much shipping is going to cost. In this case about $33...$36 after "handling" charges.

They also didn't want to waste 3 or 4 minutes lisiting what is in the lot...so I read it as 37 lbs of e-waste they didn't want to pay to dispose of.
