    How to get rid of your film cameras.

    #1 if can sell it, just sell it to any taker.

    #2 if can't sell it, hold on to it and tell people that film is still is the best.

    #3 tell newbie that you start photography using during good old day.

    #4 and tell newbies that the only truth way to learn photography is only shoot with film.

    #5 when spot a demand of film cameras, go to #1.

    #6 If failed, repeat steps from #2.

    Alittle late in my case since I have converted to DSLR since 2004. Sold all my SLR bodies except my FG which was my first SLR and Nikon make. To hang on to them is not practical as cost wise it will cost you to maintain them, takes up space and they are not so rare or classical that it is worth keeping them to pass on to the next generation. Maybe I am not that romantic in that sense nor the deep pockets to do so heheh... Besides... better to sell it to someone who would appreciate them still and most importantly use them as they were meant to be.

    I use it for my daily meditation. Hold it with both hands and seat in a lotus position.
