Going through my Dads stuff and found this Clarus Model MS35 in a leather case. Any value or interest?

Finally found where everybody went. Now all I have to do is figure out how to run my new computer and the cable connection. The installer technician left about a few hours ago.

If you are looking for a 35mm wide angle lens for a Clarus camera, checkout this this eBay auction that I just spotted. These lenses do not often come up for sale.

A few possible downsides: you will be paying for a bunch of other stuff that you can keep or sell off, and the accessory viewfinder is apparently not included. Then there's the question of condition, but my impression is that it and the body it's attached to are clean. Best to ask the seller about that in advance, though.

I have no interest in this auction. Just passing along a tip. Search for eBay item no. 172257102252

Bob, the Rollei A110 battery holder says "Mallory PX27 / Varta 7150 5.6V" - this is a mercury battery. I ended up using a silver oxide Excell S27PX which is labelled as 6 volts. You would think that the higher voltage would cause underexposure but it seemed to give perfect results with the Lomography Orca Black and White 110 film (100 ISO) that I was shooting.

What battery are you using in your A110?

I may be the exception amongst camera collectors but I’m only interested in usable cameras… the ones that you can still buy film for. When Efke stopped making its inexpensive 127 film my interest in those cameras diminished. And Fuji’s heartbreaking announcement last week that it will cease making peel-apart instant film has suddenly killed my interest in picking up a Polaroid 180 or 600se - even though the prices for these cameras will undoubtedly drop to the point of being affordable to me. But every once in a while the reverse happens… Lomography’s reintroduction of 110 film inspired me to purchase a Rollei A110 camera.

I guess at this point the term "user film camera" is about as meaningful as "user Daguerrotype camera"; for all practical purposes, there are no longer any users. Serious collectors' cameras, the kind that grace a shelf rather than a shoulder strap, I think will hold their value, but any market that had been significantly supported by people who actually used the camera for photography will have to adjust downward. Things like 35mm SLRs from the 70s are no longer practical as users, and not yet rare enough to have value to collectors. Gather them up while they're cheap, hang onto them long enough and wait for everyone else to give up and throw theirs away, and you'll have a collection again. I've always been on a budget, so I don't see the declining values as a great tragedy: my collection is worth less than it was (assuming I could have ever realized "what it was worth"), but now some very interesting pieces that I could never afford are coming within reach.

This, however, does NOT include the Detrola 400 that just sold on eBay. Although it sold for about 1/4 of its 'book' value it was still out of my reach.

Unfortunately I am witnessing a major decline in prices of high end collectible film cameras from 1940-75., on ebay.....from 75- 2007 most user film cameras are at fire sale prices. Lenses on the other hand, that have adapters for sale on ebay for modern digital cameras are doing well. The better the lens, the higher the price. Camera collectors seem to be a declining hobby? Many photo museum,s were closed in Japan &  USA....sadly.....even Kodak stores cameras in a warehouse setting instead of a Museum display case setting...regards, Don@eastwestphoto

I hadn't expected to see that the owner of the Detrola 400 is in London!

Thanks for the heads-up Rick. I'm going to locate the auction. No, you don't see them every day.

Regarding links, that seems to be a recent "improvement". I need to contact Quick Topic to find out more about that.
