I have some "old" 35mm film cameras. A few OK lenses. Are they of any value?

Manufacturer, models, and condition. Some of the lenses could be used on modern cameras either with or without adapters depending on the age, and could still be quite desirable. The film bodies could be valuable to vintage collectors or people who enjoy shooting with old film cameras.

It really depends on what they are. Get in touch with Samy's camera in Santa Barbara, I sold my Nikon F100 to them, well, they gave me credit toward a lens. I hear the students at Brook's need film bodies, so that's why they buy more of them at that store.

If I have time tomorrow I'll list which ones I have. None are auto focus, or auto anything, so the lenses wouldn't be of any use on digital cameras. A quick look on Ebay came up with values of $50 to $75 for these kind of cameras.

However.... I did see some Graflex 3X5 view cameras for less than $100. I'd love to do some large format work again.

Thanks. I went there and it seems that one camera - a Minolta SR-T Super - and the 3 lenses for it are worth over $150.
