Used 35mm Film Camera Prices Rocketing
Dipping into Ebay to see what's on offer in the world of photography, I've noticed a notable increase in "Aged" 35 mm Film camera's.
In the last two year there has been and increasing coverage in the media that Film photography is making a slow but steady come back, the desire for authenticity, and soul of 35mm images, is well apparant.
#filmisnotdead, hits the social media platforms in ever increasing numbers.
I conducted a survey today of the cost of 3 Camera's on Ebay ,all Buy only and UK based below are the results measured against my purchase price in prior years
A 10 Camera sample used for average price
Fed 4 £39 , 2017 acquired in mint condition £13 , (Check Blog 23rd July 2017)
Voightlander Vito £30 , 2018 bought for £4.99 (Check Blog 2018 Hf 1 18th Jan 2018)
Nikon F55 £26, picked up in 2017 at £10 (Check Blog 12th Aug 2017)
I believe there is a bit of an "Hipster" factor with the Fed 4 and Voighlander, with demand rattling the price up, but even the plastic body Nikon is showing a solid 260% increase in 18 months
NB I'm testing the Fed 4 currently following a repair on the shutter
