Since 1988 the Bargain Camera Show
It's been a bit since I've written a blog, but that's partly because I've been working on the first episode of my Vidcast, Ugly Pix. It took me a month and a half but I finally did it. I was fortunate enough to have a great support of mentors and friends who have helped me in my development in the past year.
My frequent go to for sourcing for budget camera gear and equipment are Goodwill's online auction site and the Bargain Camera Show.
In the past few months, I have noticed their pricing have increased and are no longer competitive to eBay and other online sites. However, an alternative to online sites, is a trip to your local swap-meet or thrift shop. like Southern California's Bargain Camera Show, Search online for any events happening in your local area. Often times, you may find rare vintage items that are now compatible with modern technology, like my cheap canon E Mount adapter I use for my Nikon 50mm 1.8 prime lens.
