Weekend What’s Selling No 001 : Hansa Canon, Leica, Lot of Film, and More

Whats selling No 001

In our never-ending quest to increase posting frequency and bring our readers fresh content, we’re launching a new weekly segment called the “Weekend What’s Selling“.

More than just a mindless list of shopping links, the WWS is a concise and curated catalog of the very best cameras and lenses that sellers have to offer from all over the internet. The items featured on WWS may come from local camera shops with an online presence, eBay, photography forums, or specialty auction houses. Whatever the source, the cameras and lenses listed will always be noteworthy examples; they might be extremely rare, an exceptional bargain, a quirky anomaly, or have historical significance.

The Weekend What’s Selling will be posted every Thursday, giving would-be shoppers plenty of time to salivate, vacillate, and budget, so by Monday you’ll have won yourself an excellent new toy.

That said, let’s launch right into the first WWS. This week we have some rarities, some bargains, and more. Check it out.

A Guide to Buying Cameras on eBay

Guide to eBay

Buying cameras can be tricky. Once you’re bitten by the collector’s bug, it doesn’t take long to tap dry your local thrift stores, antique shops, and flea markets.

Here are a few simple tips to help you get the most out of your eBay camera hunt. With diligence, thoughtfulness, and a little luck, you’ll be on your way to a solid record of wins, and minimized losses.
