The future looks good .

Late 90's early 2000's SLR cameras sell from about £15 .

Many later manual SLRs sell from about £50 .

Many sell for around £25 .

Some professional grade cameras sell from £200 to £600 .

With some disirable / cult / hyped up cameras sell for up to several thousands .

There's no shortage of good quality used gear , and there's not likely to be .

There are still places that service older gear to keep it going .

I've probably got up to around a hundred different film cameras , not all film formats are still available though .

So I'm not likely to run out of usable cameras before I die .


If you think there's an issue with availability I suggest you look on eBay or in used camera stores .

There's always dome models that will command a premium .

Same as with cars or anything else .

Just because a certain models costs £25,000 used doesn't mean there isn't plenty of £1000 cars on the used market , or £250 one for that matter !
