    So who has had a cheap camera?

    I think this one cost all of 20.

    Camera make: MINTON
    Camera model: DSC-80M-52
    Camera version: Digital Still Camera W/O LCD V052

    All it needs is editing out of the streaks from the setting sunlight.

    What do you call cheap?

    My D60 cost me about 86 Pounds (it was in a package with a much more expensive lens). Currently I'm using it mostly with the plastic 18-55 which I bought second-hand for 50 Pounds. That's a total of - ummm - 136 Pounds. Is that cheap or not?

    Everything I put in my Prague thread was done with this combination.

    You got a fantastic deal there, but not as cheap as I was thinking of.

    My first camera cost me $5.00 at a garage Sale, 1969 Minolta Hi-Matic 7s. Used it for three years.

    Re: So who has had a cheap camera?

    Nice images, and cheap too.

    My camera was 800x600 max, and took a very strange paper-thin media card.
    All went off to someone's child to play with.
    And I moved on to a Mavica.
    Which went off to someone as a first digital.
    One day, I suppose my 20D will be a hand-me-down for someone.
    And the LZ-5.

    Either no megapixels, or LOTS once scanned
    Thought you'd be by, eventually.

    I like this one.
    Should get my Brownie shots back soon ...

    megan, I will see your $25.00 Holga with my $25.00 Lubitel 2



    Also...my first digital camera was a steal at $150.00, and a photo from that ended up as the cover shot for a national magazine.

    150 isn't really cheap, let's set the bar at 25 or under

    Re: So who has had a cheap camera?

    Just a comment on that diesel: It's amazing how much mass you can put in a valvetrain when it doean't have to do any revs!!! Crossbar welded to the end of the rocker arm!!! Really??!!!?!?!

    Cheap camera, can't help you. I had the cheapest possible 126 Instamatic back in junior high school, didn't even turn the flashcubes itself, but I have no pictures surviving from those days, sadly.

    Cheapest SLR was a Canon AE-1 with 50mm f/1.4 brand new for $100!! Friend of my sister's got it for his birthday in 1982 or thereabouts, and he had no interest in it whatsoever. I offered him the hundred bucks as a joke, had it in my wallet for some reason, and he wanted the money!

    Re: So who has had a cheap camera?

    O.k. I won the auction on the Fuji. Came in the mail today... Cost 1.99 USD Shipping 11.00 USD So far all functions good. (came with 3 smart-media cards...not too easy to find these days.)

    Tried a selfer on my tinted helmet visor, tested the macro mode on the FZ.... I'll try to get some decent shots in good light in the next couple of days....

    I posted a full res. 2 MP image sample in the Food section of the PR photo gallery for all you pixel peepers.

    I still use an Olympus XA2 from time to time. I think it cost $30.00 and I just finished a roll of Ektar I shot with a Canonet I gave $30.00 for at a yard sale.

    Olympus C765UZ. It was the first digital camera I ever bought then I sold it years ago but regret it due to its outstanding macro capabilities and bought another from eBay for US$20.00 (in like new condition). GET ONE! you won't regret it, I promise.

    Re: So who has had a cheap camera?

    I had a Kodak disk camera that was cheap, as in crappy, and a Kodak Z740 that was similarly poor, but it was expensive. My 30D was given to me so it was cheap in the best of ways.
    I took the square root of some negatives and all my pictures came out in the wrong focal plane.
