    Just some of the cameras available at my local Goodwill.

    I had the Olympus Stylus in the front left corner. Anyone else identify cameras from long ago?

    Is that a late model Sony Mavica middle right? The early model Mavica that wrote 640x480 pics onto a 1.44MB floppy was my first digital camera.

    Amazing how things have changed in such a short amount of time.

    It's always a drag when I go to browse the photo gear in a second hand store and find nothing but '90s and newer P&S. Funny how most things with manual control remain much more desirable and collectable.

    Same here, Jeff. I've never found any decent camera gear in a thrift shop.

    My local Cancer research place has quite a few old Canon 35mm and such, some nice manual lenses as well, but mostly priced way above what they should be.

    I have found a few things, but as Jeff mentioned they are mostly 90's point and shoot castoffs.

    Neat idea. I like shopping at a thrift store that actually tries to benifit the community.

    Sony FD-91 was my first digital. On fine mode it saved a whopping 4 images to a floppy disk. I was sold on digital after that :) Never looked back at K25.

    Very nice to see those BTW Dave.

    Still got one of those Olympus cameras [although branded μ[mju:] over here]. Might have to dust it off and run a roll through it as I remember it being quite a nice camera.
