Minolta X-700 - Thrifted

Recently, I picked up this beauty for $5 in a thrift store in Gunnison, Colorado.



According to a few different google searches this lady was the top of the line in her day, and currently goes anywhere from $100-200 on the interweb. Did I mention that I bought it with film already in it? Well, I did. I plan on getting it developed and I'm hoping for some neat vintage pictures.

What has been your best score while out thrifting recently?

  3. I purchased a Kodak Instamatic x35f camera. But came to find out that film cartridges for this bad boy are no longer made. Oh well. Still really cool for only $1!
