I'm not a hipster, but I'm I'm loving older camera gear right now-- There are such bargains!
Okay semi-Hipster for my collection of Canon Fd lenses I'm collecting for my Fuji X-Mount
But I wanna talk Old school Point-n-shoots/Prosumers
I just picked up this beauty-- ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/5000-9999/5705/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1154738.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/5000-9999/5705/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1154738.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' For 29 Bucks-- the best feeling camera in my hand ever-- Fits just right-- BTW $1000.00 on release
I want an Olympus for collection--
Should I go for the C-5050 Zoom for 60 bucks or the E-10 for 75?

And don't say neither.. lol

Both! ;-)

Old School Digital, now there is a new term for me. But then again, my first digital camera was a Sonly FD71, purchased before the turn of the century... Which I still have. (No longer legal for entries as it is pre-EXIF.)

I still tend to think of Old School, as film. Now there are cameras I have too many of... (Sorry ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Lydia For butchering the grammar.)

I still have my Nikon CoolPix 990 (the first digital I had that allowed for manual control) and all the lenses that Nikon made for it, along with a few 3rd Party ones as well.

My brother was a news photographer when digital first came out. He's set about collecting all those old Kodak DCS with Nikon bodies that he used to use. He's got a rack full of them at a cumulative cost still well under what any one of them cost new. Most of them still work.

As for me, I think I still have the Sony Mavica with the built in 3 1/4" floppy drive here somewhere.

Funny, I still have my 995, and I also still have the Nikon add-on lenses, LOL. Up until last year, I was still using the 995 occasionally at work for quick macro documentation projects.

film i can understand because of the process behind it and character they lend to the final images but i really dont understand the point of old digital cameras.
