Batteries.

Some of the desirable cameras of yesteryear used mercury cell batteries, now totally banned for sale all over, substitutes may not be successful. So choose cameras based on battery types, AA is extremely good but usually are in the heavy duty SLRs, though I do have somewhere a Ricoh 35R pocket sized camera that worked well,  30mm lens, some degree of aperture priority and yield pretty good results using its two AA batteries. Hey, just dug it out and it has a film in it - I wonder what's there !

Still works, just took a shot even with the very old alkaline batteries (>10 years) in it. No instant review so no idea what really happened !

Regards....... Guy
