    The new stuff will be more expensive. The best bet is to go for 2nd hand items. At the camera stores, these are usually graded, and so, the better the condition, the higher the price. To have a rough idea of the prices, check out the Japanese photo mags such as Asahi, Photo Technic where prices of 2nd hand camera accessories are listed. There are also some interesting films which are sold exclusively in Japan only. Good Luck.
