    Value on these old camers?


    I have these 3 cameras, they have been sitting in a cupboard untouched for like 50 years or something and figured I'd just get an oppininon on their value before I chuck em on fleabay. you never know

    One is a Zeiss Ikon, Ikonika,

    One is a Luxor II

    One is a kodac instamatic

    They are all in unreal conditin for their age. They have the leather cases and stuff.

    Really sorry for the bad photsos

    Thanks for your time

    Classic film cameras just don't bring much. Older digital cameras don't either. I bought older digicams (because they have optical viewfinders) for under $30 on e-bay. I just sold my Miranda Sensorex II in excellent condition to someone in Brooklyn for $30 with 2 lenses.

    Don's right, there really isn't much of a market for these older cameras in general. You may get $20 or so a piece for them on ebay from someone looking to add them to a collection, or to use them as a decoration.

    Tell that to the folks at Camera shows...price gouging galore.

    But the instamatic with a 126 film cartridge is pretty sweet. So is the Zeiss, nice classic folder right there.

    The old Luxor looks interesting. You never know about those old RFs. I would check here.
