I wanted to share a project idea that I did, not too long ago. It was quite fun and maybe a few of you would like to do something similar or already have. Back in the day, a boy took a high school photography class and learned quickly how limited and or useless his 110 and 126 cameras were, and proceeded to beg mom to buy him a 35mm camera. Lo and behold one day the magic happened and he became the proud owner of a Yashica MG-1. It was his first 35mm camera. Not too long after that the lad advanced, needing more than the fixed lens of the Yashica could provide, and a Minolta XG-1 became his pride and joy. Years and years pass, and the XG-1 was traded for a Nikon EM, then the EM was traded for an N2000. The N2000 was stolen before even a single picture could be taken, but the Navy helped reimburse the lad his loss, and a Minolta X-570 was the result. Those were the days. All those cameras were "sole owner" cameras, in that, I had no other camera concurrently. Not so nowadays. I made it a point, a couple years ago, to scour eBay and get a copy of each of these 4 cameras, and they now sit in my mini-museum case. I have about 6-8 other SLRs that I use regularly so these are seldom called into action. But they do, on occasion, see use. All of them work fine. If you're bored, or have some spare cash, try doing it yourself. It's amazing what cameras go for now. I got the Yashica for like, $15. Just promise yourself you'll take them out and use them once in a while. They were boon companions once, and still can be.
