Show your love of photography with one of four vintage Canon belt buckles. One can be yours for the modest price of $20.00 and only found in our used department.
Hello everyone out there in interweb land! My name is Jonathan and on most days you can find me in the used department of our downtown store. I will be blogging about the odd, strange, and always cool things found in my little corner of heaven called the used department. Probably once a week I am confronted by a customer who seems shocked that film is still available and that there are still people out in the world using it on a regular basis. I just so happen to be one of those people who shoot film about 90% and digital the other 10% of the time. I explain to them that there are so many great film cameras out there that they can buy real cheap and there are all kinds of benefits to using a film camera. One of these benefits is they’re cheap! You drop it, gets stolen, or just dies your not out a whole lot of money. Yes there are still some that hold there value, Leica, Linhof, and a few others, but there’s a whole bunch of cool cameras for $500 or less. The second benefit is that film limits your shots down to 24 or 36 so it forces you to slow down and take time in framing the shot you want. So I say come in and find yourself a film camera, a roll of film, and slow down. Digital is great instant gratification, but sometimes its good to wait and see what what appears on the film. Oh and did I mention we also have a lab that processes film.
Aaaaand a few pieces of interest today:
Wide wideness from Tamron for Nikon AF – The 11-18 f/4.5-5.6
Speaking of loved, the Canon 24-105mm f/4
Nikon D300 bereft of video codecs.
And the hard-to-find D700.
Quickly here, I’ll point out our used Panasonic gear:
http://robertscamera.com/used-refurb/used/used-10100626.html – the much loved LX-3 (Heck, I have one. I love it.)
http://robertscamera.com/used-refurb/used/dmc-gf1-body-only.html – if you’re looking to break into the m4:3 user’s club.
Highlights for this week start off with the Voigtländer 20mm f/3.5 (pictured left). What’s remarkable about this beaut is how narrow it is. I’m pretty sure it’s the narrowest lens I’ve photographed for the used department.
If you’re looking for a used D700, we’ve got one in EX condition.
Too big? There’s a D300 in LN condition.
If any of that is just too small potatoes, then you should give a look at the refurbished Leica M9 in Steel Gray we have. Giggity.
This week I’m going to point out that we’ve got a mess of refurbished Nikon gear come into our store like the:
Refurbished D7000, body only.
Also, the elusive Refurbished D700
The important thing to remember about Nikon Refurbished is that it comes with 90 days of coverage from Nikon, which means you can think of it as new when it comes to shopping for a MACK warranty, and their Diamond variety are the best bang for your buck when purchasing Nikon refurbished.
Step right up, folks! Check out the Used department highlights for the week:
Pictured left – a Nikon AF-S 500mm F/4 D in BGN condition.
Next week should have us introducing another new category and highlighting some more rockin’ gear. A special photo after the jump…
