    Found a few cameras in my grandma's bedroom. She's in the hospital and likely not coming back home so we started cleaning her room and of course I had to swipe these up.

    How old are these things? Any of 'em worth anything?

    Doesn't look to be in very good condition. If any of that stuff was worth anything, the condition probably hurts the value a lot.

    Unfortunately probably not worth much at all, I've got a few oldies around the house... though they may not fetch a lot on ebay they do look cool on a shelf on display :)

    Ugh. Thermite flash bulbs. I remember those things from when I was a kid.

    Biggest pain in the ass ever.

    They arent worth anything, I have a few of the same cameras that my dad had kept from when he was a kid. They dont even make the size film that you need for those TLR's anymore. If you get your hands on 2 of the spools, you can cut down a roll of 120 film to size, then re-spool it in a dark bag.

    You can always try to do the "through the viewfinder" effect, for fun. I think it looks cool. http://www.flickr.com/groups/throughtheviewfinder/
