My eyes are glazing over from staring at the computer screen, because I’ve just spent the last few hours reading Flickr discussion groups and browsing eBay for compact film point-and-shoot. I think writing about the demise of my SLR’s lens yesterday made me pine for a film camera markedly different from what I’ve been using. Right now, I’ve got a whole lot of cameras on my eBay watch list — Olympus Trip 35s, overpriced Lomo LC-As, Leica C1s and Miniluxes, Contax T2s, a Petri Color 35 and even a Kodak Pony and a Kodak folding camera with bellows. I even found a Konica Hexar AF for sale locally in Toronto (this one is very tempting). I’d much rather find this stuff at thrift stores or garage sales, but I have access to neither at the moment. I usually let the stuff I’m watching slide and that’ll probably happen. Coming to my senses at the end of the few hours, I searched eBay for the exact same lens as my old one. There are some promising ones out there. We’ll see if they pan out. We’ll also see if I get this compact film camera thing off my mind.
