    is it worth anything?

    It is a .35 camera and has 2 lenses. Once is for close up and the other is long range. I am very very new to photography and want to use it to practice, but is it worth anything? it used to take amazing photographs, but I am not sure if it is worth it at all.

    I have no details about it, sorry. I am barely getting into taking pics so I dont know too much about it.
    All the parts seem to work well, and the lens, one is a macro, which I guess takes good up close pics, the other one is for far away.

    I guess I can post pics when I get home.
    Could I use some of those lenses with a good DLSR camera later on?

    hey, some people still have film stuff laying around.

    Post the type of camera, usually labeled. I.e. I have an old minolta xg-m. The lens will have the brand, and the focal length, in millimeters. I.e. 50 mm, or 24-70 mm.
    Post that, and I can try and help you out further.

    Take it down to the Mt. Vernon Inn and trade it for an 8 ball.
