What to do with them? I have quite a collection at this point, and none get any use. Nor are they likely to, alas. I can't bear to throw them away, they're all still perfectly good (well, except for the Nikon EM which has a door latch problem).

I have an old Bell and Howell (model 35, I think...like this one: http://www.butkus.org/chinon/ebay/bell&howell-35.jpg), a Minolta (don't remember the model), one beast I would have to look at to tell you**, a Nikon N2000 (great camera...I used it for many many years!), and my beloved F100 (which was retired before its time due to the arrival of my D700).

What to do with all these guys? I'd love to find a good home for them, but I fear their only home now is a museum. Very sad.

**I inherited this somehow. Never used it. It's 35mm, but the lens cannot be changed. The lens is actually inside a casing that is part of the camera. It will zoom. Almost looks like a video camera, but it isn't. Just sitting here I don't remember for certain, but I believe it is view-finder (and I think the view finder zooms with the lens). An odd-looking beast. Still works, though (last time I checked it, which was a couple years ago).
