In the Shop – New this week

Some neat new items hit the shop this week and as always, every camera gets fully inspected, adjusted and cleaned by me. My cameras and photo gear are ready to be the centerpiece in your collection or ready to hit the streets for another exciting go at photography – guaranteed!

Here’s a small sample of what’s available at

Happy SUNday! – Unopened Treasure

It’s always a blast to find a camera set that’s still new in its original box. Of course, it also creates a bit of a dilemma – should I use what is still a new camera and “ruin” its newness or should I be happy with keeping it unused and therefore in mint condition?

This, on the other hand, presents a whole different ballgame. Should I remove the outer plastic wrap and play with my new find or leave it as is – still wrapped from the factory and obviously untouched (and unused by me)?


The Fujifilm Zoom Date 135V with its Fujinon 38-135mm zoom lens was first released in the US in April 2004. In Japan, it’s known as the Silvi F135 and was listed at ¥ 29,400. It’s part of the well respected Silvi series of sophisticated compact 35mm film cameras that Fuji Photo was making as late as the mid-2000s.


This set was available at Ritz Camera as late as July 2005 and would have been competing against digital cameras and affordable megapixels.


Here’s what the camera looks like outside of the box. Tempting!



A modern classic from Fujifilm.

If you would like to be the next owner of this still new camera, it’s available in my Etsy shop at

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day! – Chris
