Just traded Canon T90

Do you remember Canon T 90. Top of the line about 15 years ago? My friend sold it today to the used department at B&H. It was in perfect condition, They gave him $150, no subject to negotiation. There is no interest in film cameras anymore. It is sad but that's how it is. Of course he might play on eBay and maybe he would make a few bucks more but he didn't want to do it.

I wouldn't sell it for such a low price. Is better to donate it or just to use it from time to time. A camera is not like an old car that becomes a ruin if not used. If you take good care of it, I think that a film camera would have such a great value for the next generation in your family...no way, I would have sold it. In fact I am looking to buy a film camera, just to be sure I have it before Nikon or Canon decide to go the Kodak way.

Not that I hate digital, I love it and without it this community wouldn't be real, but why give up on good things? bitter taste.

Well, Achilles, you are right. Some people would not sell it but he was short of cash, lost interest in photography and switched to digital to snap some photos from time to time. He had some lenses also which he gave up as well. This is just an example how people react to digital era. Of course some people still listen to vinyl records instead of CD's but how many of them?

Yep, you're right

Just found this article. In the end is all about the money and Kodak knew it.
