Goodwill Camera Find
« on: December 20, 2016, 09:17:08 PM »
The Canon AE-1(on the left) cost $4.99 minus 10% old people discount, plus 7% state tax. In excellent condition, actually has no wear. Already had a battery in it which allowed me to test the functions.

The Polaroid (right) is a SUN 66o model with auto-focus. That was $1.99 with the same discount and tax.

I found this on YouTube of a guy trying to do a "review" of this Polaroid model. Didn't turn out quite as he expected.

Wow, that's a really nice price on the AE-1, congrats!
Looks like it's got the basic lens equipped.

Mine was free, but the AE-1 Program I got at Value Village the other day was $30, quite a bit higher.

If you're going to have one lens, that would be a good one.
