Manufacturers are producing everything but cameras and with a strong decline in servicing shops, I wonder where all of this is going?

Besides, let me just share some current prices of some random cameras I’ve seen on German eBay - please remember these are used items with no real idea how long they will last before they croak.

contax T2 - 2000$ average

yashica t4 - 350$

olympus xa - 120$
That’s just all crazy and will sooner or later go down The shitter.

Forget those overpriced and overhyped cameras loved by hipsters. "Your camera doesn't matter" © Ken Rockwell. It is just a lighttight box. The things that matter are: your photographer skills, films and lenses. There are lots of inexpensive film SLRs ca. 1990-2000 capable of working with modern lenses. Buy several cameras compatible with your lenses and you will be all set for decades to come
