This community seems pretty much dead but I guess it's the best bet for the question that I have:
What has been your luck with finding cameras that work at thrift and antique stores?
I recently came across an antique shop that had a whole section of vintage cameras (old brownies, polaroids, etc.) but before going crazy and buying tons of cameras that might not even work I decided to do a little researching. So, anyone that actually still reads this community, any tips for buying and using antique cameras? Or are they solely for collection purposes?

Hi, I just joined this community since I figure it really fits the
photo taking style I have... which is using a piece of shit
camera. I love just taking pictures of random things and
downloading it onto my computer... and await for the surprise of what I took.
Here is an example of crappyness

My mom bought me this at the local thrift shop (in a big briefcase with tons of flash bulbs (they look like they are from the 50's) and old film cannisters). It's an Ansco Super Memar... does anyone know anything about this type of camera? I don't have much experience with cameras outside of digital ones... so anything anyone can give me would be a great help lol. ;)
(sorry for the poor webcam image... the digital camera's batteries are recharging. ;P)

where did toycamera
go? just when I made an interesting purchase, the communities that can help me find out more about my camera seems to disappear. this community seems dead at times, but I am asking here anyhow. any information would be great cause I haven't found a single thing on the net:
today when thrifting I found the cutest thing for $1; Accent MX-V
, a plastic camera with aperture and weather-wheel.
it's so cute and easy to work with I am surprised it hasn't replaced Lomo as the perfect toycamera.
I know I've seen this camera around before but I can't seem to find anything about it.

Impressionism and a water-soaked throwaway camera

I'm posting this too all my photo shareing communities, so sorry about the crosspoasting and about not haveing any pics in this post...:(
I have a minor (i hope) dilemma..
I use printroom for my image hosting, to post pics here...but as of February, they will no longer offer 3rd party hosting..not even with a fee!(suck!) so can anybody recommend a good free or lowcost image hosting service?..One that's fairly easy to use would be a plus.. thank you so much!!!

kids in flight?
I took this one with a jam cam 3.0.. the upgraded model that has a flash (*giggles*). It has 640x480 resolution and absolutely no tolerance for movement, but the affect was charming in this one..

Logitech Pocket Digital
Here's a pic I took using the Logitech Pocket Digital. Like some of the really cheap "1 Megapixel" digitals, it's sensor is really the same as a webcam - 640x480 - and it interpolates up. Once you learn to shut that feature off you can get some good pics out of it. (this pic was posted in the Toycameras community but I got flack because it was digital (REAL toy cameras aren't digital, ::giggle::) and it might have been removed from there, I don't know.)
It also features the SMaL Camera Technologies Autobrite feature, which basically compresses the contrast range when it's wider than the bits available to record the image(I know that's simplistic, but it's late...) You end up with detail in bright areas and detail in shadow - it's sort of an automatic Zone System developer :)
It really showed up in this pic taken late at night in the PATH station at Christopher St in NYC. Strong, directional overhead lights.
