lol Just not to me I guess...

Last September I bought a fully functional Canon 300D (+ working Canon charger and working Canon battery) for $30 on eBay. It is still useful for good 8x10s and maybe larger. Six megapixels is only a bit shy of 4K (eight megapixels.)


One can purchase a Nikon D100 body on eBay for around $50. It has a resolution of 6MP.

I own one and still occasionly use it. One problem that does occur with a camera this old is that the menu dials and selector switches lose their lubrication and become very difficult to turn. I own a Nikon D100 which came out in 2002 and a Nikon D200 which came out in 2005 and both of these cameras have developed this problem.
