Thread: is this camera still worth anything?

  1. #1

    Default is this camera still worth anything?

    I found a Konica Pop in my wardrobe. Don't have the picture of it but it looks like this:



    is it worth anything at all?

    Its worth something if you take photos with it and enjoy what you take. If you're talking about monetary value, compact film cameras are pretty dead nowadays unless its some retro fashion item.

    Hope that helps. Cheers!

    P&S cameras, especially film ones, once sold are near worthless. I tried to sell mine to TCW and they don't even want it.

    But if you know how to use it, it can be a lomo. Well, that's what my friend did. He tried all kinds of things on his compact camera and the results were quite good.

    It's not worth anything. Feel free to give it to me.

    Worth is up to each person.

    For example, a 30m luxury motorised Yatch in mint condition is useless to me because:

    I cannot afford to upkeep it even if you give it to me free.
    I cannot pay the berthing fees.
    I cannot pay for the captain and the crew.
    I cannot pay for the petrol.
    I cannot pay for the maintenance.
    I do not fancy this hobby of yatching.
    I got no need to impress anybody by showing off the yatch.

    Same applies to your Konica POP whatever its price.

    I am going to do a project with children from a home soon. But since I am still trying to tie up some ends with the home, I have not done any appeal for cameras yet. Sneak preview of the project www.ourworld-oneworld.org

    You can keep the camera and donate it to us when we start the project proper in Singapore. helps me save on the cost, else I will have to get disposable cameras.

    If its not taking up too much space (if you lack space) keep it.

    who knows, it can be worth something if someone's looking for this as a prop specifically (but that's quite rare lah) or some collector comes along and wants to buy it off you.

    Seriously, you should keep it...

    Keep it for another 100 years. If you can, another 1000 years would definitely worth something for the human species.

    Keep it... within maybe 20 or 30 years time it'll be an antique...

    30 years later people would go:
    "Wah, you have a FILM camera?!"



    Now digital is advancing at such a high speed....

    Sell it if it is of no use to you. Or you

    There are some people who may still want to buy it for sentimental reasons - perhaps they once own such a camera?

    I just check eBay and there's a red version of your camera which fetch a bit more at USD$10. Otherwise can sell about USD$5.
