In this video I go through the process of buying film cameras, demonstrating how to get an accurate price, talking about the different shops/marketplaces where you can buy film cameras and discussing Ebay scams/techniques.

Misspelled Ebay listings: 20:08

It seems really simple but it’s possible to get scammed so I thought I’d put this out to help people without experience buying kit. I’d hate for someone to take the plunge into the film world only to spend £200 on some M42 paperweight.
