I've got to clear some space, so it's time to sell things that don't get used very often. I'm starting with a couple of cameras and I've priced them to sell...
Olympus OM20 with 28mm f/2.8 lens
Great little camera from the 1980s; just like the aperture-priority OM10 but with a manual mode as well. Some secondhand cameras from the 80s can look a little bit grubby. However, this camera is in a lovely clean condition, as you can see in the photos below...
The lens is made by Clubman which isn't an upmarket brand, but nonetheless the lens functions perfectly and is clear of fungus or scratches.
I've run film thru the camera and can verify that it takes clear, sharp and correctly exposed photos. (I was going to say 'great' photos, but that would exaggerate my own photographic ability!
The camera comes with a user manual, front lens cap and strap...
I'll smother the camera in lots and lots of bubble-wrap and send it in a strong cardboard box.
Price: £19 + £6 P&P (Royal Mail 1st Class "Signed For")
Canon EOS 500n body
I had planned to switch from my current 35mm system (Minolta Dynax) to the Canon EOS system to avoid "upgrading" to Sony's kit when I went digital. So I bought this EOS 500n body cheaply from eBay.
But since then, I've changed plans again...
...and I've now got my eyes on Pentax dSLRs. So I never got to use this EOS body!
Again, the camera is in great cosmetic condition as you can see in the photos, and is probably the lightest camera body I've ever picked up.
I didn't buy a lens for this body, so I've never run a film thru it.
However, when it is switched on, the camera comes to life and can meter light levels with a suggested shutter speed when the lens cap is removed. I've no reason to believe that it wouldn't perform perfectly with a lens attached.
The camera comes with a body cap, Canon strap & two CR123 batteries and will be smothered in lots and lots of bubble-wrap before being sent in a strong cardboard box.
Price: £6 + £4 P&P (Royal Mail 1st Class "Signed For")
For payment, I prefer the usual PayPal gift method, although I'm open to suggestions (cheques, Zimbabwean dollars, Sunday leftovers, etc.
). Please reply to this thread if you want to buy and then PM me. Thanks chaps!
