Classic film cameras from my personal collection & photo apparatus for sale

A great chance to own one of the best film cameras, at an affordable price, that you will be using day in, day out! Click here to read all about it!



Hi, folks! Rather than just keeping adding to my posts here every time I decide to offer a camera for sale, I have left this page permanently as the first one you come to when you come to my blog; it shows you what I am offering for sale without you having to navigate all round the blog just to find out! Most of the items I was offering on here sold long ago, so at present, I am offering just one item for sale to you, and a superb one it is, too!

A new refinement to the blog is how you can make your purchases — you can either purchase your camera by emailing me directly on harsum888 at yahoo dot com, or leaving a comment here on this blog OR you can click on that photo of an Olympus 35SP camera, just on your right hand side of the blog here, right underneath the world map….that’ll take you to my store on Click any of the links on the main page that you come to when you search for my blog….any of those links will take you to my other stores online.

Anyway, besides buying a camera here, you’ll find some really great stuff to tickle your fancy, ranging from news or tidbits about famous photographers, unknown photographers, film and digital camera news, 35mm film reviews, and lots, lots more. I usually aim to post at least once a day, but failing that, depending upon what tasks the wife has lined up for me, at least once or twice a week!

Aside of that, I will also talk about film noir, writing, my other love, street photography, and also on the odd occasion, anything that really bugs me. We’re all allowed to rant and rave about things in this world!

I try and arrange regular street photography sessions here in Vancouver BC as well, so please do keep dropping in regularly. The most recent street shoot went really well and was enjoyed thoroughly by all concerned…thank you for attending!

Other than that, I hope you enjoy reading this blog, and in the fashion of that famous phrase “me casa, su casa”, this blog is my blog….and your blog; if you don’t like anything in it, or feel there’s something missing, well, please let me know by your comments. I’d really appreciate that.

Oh, and a very, very warm welcome to the blog!         🙂

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!

  1. I have a Nikon F2 and a FE2 that I got so long ago and both were very well used. I checked out the post on the F2 and learned quite a bit. NASA, you say? I have a little more respect for it now. Maybe I will start using it again. It was a great camera and I have many a lens too. You have so many cameras, you must have a real investment in lenses. From the other post, I too have ‘kicked’ my husband out many times. Metaphorically speaking of course, since he still is here too.

    Oh, and tonight, I am going to the studio of our photography group leader and I am shooting female figures. Never did that before. I have sketched them, but never photographed them. It will really be a new experience for me. Wish me luck. I am hoping to get at least one image I am somewhat proud to have taken, but it may be a long shot on that account.

    • hi and thanks for your comments!
      yes, its true about the nikon…the astronauts really did use it in space, which obviously goes to show what well-engineered piece of machinery it still is.
      i really like the old nikons…built like tanks and useful as a weapon, if thrown!
      as for throwing partners out..i had to laugh at your comments! me and the wife have had this love/hate affair as long as we’ve been together, and we’re no spring chickens either! i fully agree with her of course…the poor old soul has had to put up with my cameras in every single nook and cranny, with hardly a space for her to hang her dresses etc! but im paring down my collection now..its gotten out of hand the last few years…but you know, soon as i let something go, i find something else thats worth buying..!
      finally, congrats on taking up a new challenge…it really does take a lot of guts to get up and try something new…whatever it is, so best of luck from me over here…im sure you will come back with some great shots…and pls post them up for us to see.

  2. Thanks for wishing a good go of my new experience. I did get some very beautiful images, but there were so many photographers shooting in a small studio. I cannot use the images for the web, but did ask the model if I can use one fully clothed to explain my experience, and she agreed. I found I love this kind of studio work, and would love to try it again where I could work the lighting without so many other shooters at one time. Oh, check out my post today. I told my story of the stolen image. It got all worked out. Thanks for your help on this issue. I did OK.

    So these are the cameras you’re selling which makes me much more curious about the cameras you own and are shooting with. Glad to have found your site, good luck with the sales. Cheers!

    • hehe! yes, indeed…as many of my readers know by now…i own a very large number of cameras…always buying and sometimes selling as well!
      when i get fed up with one camera, i offer it for sale…then go out and buy another!

    Four cameras and limited space maybe you can help me out, onlooking to get rid of at least two of them but I’m not sure which two. I’m keeping my canon FTb because I have a lot if lenses for it and it holds sentimental value and its the only one of the four I use regularly. I have a Minolta x-700 and it will be one that I sell but I can’t decide between the other two. I have a Nikon that’s supposed to be a very good camera F2 (55/3.5 AI macro(ex)) but its never worked properly and when you look through it everything seems to be fuzzy and scratched looking. I think the little box inside is scratched that the mirror reflects into. Then I have a Vivitar 220/sl. I never use it either but mainly because I only have two lenses and I like my canon better. All that to ask you this. Do you know if the Nikon can be repaired if the inside thing is scratched? And in your opinion would it be worth messing with? Thanks sorry for the long post but you seem very knowledgable.

    • no…im not knowledgable at all….its just my words…they attract attention!
      seriously ho…i would sick with the Canon FTB…those were great things…i own a fair number of canon slrs, inc the ftb.
      the vivitar can go, so can the minolta….they are 2 a penny!
      as for the nikon, i got a feeling that the prism or the focussing screen are the problem…both can be replaced, but at a cost, which you may or may not want to do…entirely up to you.
      nikon cameras were solid things…even when they fail, you can still use them as doorstops…or to hit someone on the head if they try to mug you! 😉

    Hello! Thanks for reblogging Footsteps in Silence….most kind. Just a point-and-shoot photo taker with digital camera, but sure do appreciate quality photos, film cameras and a sensitive eye. Namaste!
