Start Your Own Camera Museum For $35,000

If you've got Gear Acquisition Syndrome and a couple thousand dollars to spare, you might be interested in placing a bid on this humongous camera lot on eBay. With over 2,000 cameras and accessories included, you could set up your own camera museum in no time!

Every Lomographer has a humble camera collection of their own, but it may pale in comparison to this huge bundle of cameras being sold by kka20101 on eBay.

According to the lister, it’s his lifetime collection of vintage cameras which he acquired over a span of 50 years. There are over 1,000 cameras from various brands, shooting formats, plus their lenses and accessories, too. Due to the large quantity, the lister didn’t give specific details such as model, condition, or defects (if any) but says “many of the cameras are in working condition” and look good cosmetic-wise. Photos of the lot indicate that brands like Canon, Nikon, Rollei, Yashica, Ricoh, Polaroids, Kodak, Fuji, Pentax, Petri, Pax, Mamiya, and more are in the mix.

Tempted by all this camera p0rn? Well, this collection can be yours at the starting bid price of $34,999. Or if you can’t wait and simply must have it now, you can get it for a whopping $49,999! Don’t forget to add $1,000 for shipping. That’s a lot of money but, then again, that’s also a lot of cameras! We’re just wondering why he has decided to part with of his prized possessions because it is certainly a treasure trove that will make any film enthusiast drool.

Want to start a camera collection of your own without breaking the bank? Head to our new Online Shop to check out all the Lomography cameras, film, and accessories available!
