I'm on the hunt at eBay....wheeeee!
    #3281067 - 10/26/04 09:13 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Its always fun when I find myself in the market for a used item and I get to go to eBay and start bidding. Especially if it is an item of which there is a large surplus on eBay. You can just keep low-balling the auctions til you finally score a good deal.

I am in the market to replace my 35mm film camera. Since I have gone digital for most applications there is only one thing left for which I will shoot film exclusively...time exposures.

I like to shoot pictures of lightning and I also do a lot of extended-exposure nighttime pictures. Digital just doesn't do the job for these applications. So I am replacing my old Canon AE-1 with another old 35mm camera which will require no battery power to take long time exposures. The models I am searching for are...
Canon F-1
Olympus OM-1
Nikon F
Nikon F2
Nikon F3HP

Here are some examples of the pictures I intend to take with this camera (these were taken with my current Canon AE-1)...




BTW- thats a plane flying through that last photo. And the mountain is lit up from the faint light of Vegas in the distance. It was actually dark as fuck when I took that pic.

UPDATE:

I got my camera.
See the auction

For this price I would've liked to score one more lens (possibly a 28mm) but I wasn't opposed to spending this much for this camera.  It is coming out of a camera shop where it has just been checked out and had all the light seals replaced.  That alone is worth something, especially when I plan on using this camera for many years to come.

Eventually I will buy another lens (most likely a 28mm).  Until then, I get to sell my other camera set and make all my money back (and maybey then some). :thumbup:

OK...

From the same storm as the photo above. A plane was flying through this one.



From another storm but in the same general area...



And yet another storm. My freinds house and the top of my truck are in the foreground...

nice. I had a whole roll of time exposure shots from my last camping trip. I made the mistake of taking em to CVS 1 hour photo and they ripped the negs right down the middle. Im gonna try to scan the halves and put em toghether on photoshop. Pain in the ass. Your photos are great, keep up the good work and good luck with getting the new camera

Thats actually an apartment complex. My apartment was in the lower-left of the picture. Behind there was more neighborhoods. What did the lightning hit? I don't know. The storm just kept moving closer and when it starterd to rain on me I ran for cover.
