My Camera... for sale

How kosher is it to use my blog to sell something? I'm not sure. But here I go anyway.

Tear. I've made a lot of memories with this camera. But, as Sarah Brightman says, it is "time to say goodbye."

I'm selling my SLR camera. You interested?

Here are some specs:

It is a film camera, not digital. [Big reason why I'm selling it. I don't really use film anymore.]

*It is a Canon EOS ELAN.
*I have two lenses for it. First lens: Quantaray 70-300mm (Tele-Macro) and the second lens: Quantaray 35-80mm. [They're obviously both compatible with the Canon body.]

It is an absolutely amazing camera. If I had reason to keep a film camera, I totally would, because this is one heck of a SLR.

A few pics of the beauty: [forgive the crummy shots... they were taken with my puny little pocket digital camera.]

How much, you ask? $150. [I'm selling the set on KSL and Craigslist for $180... but if you get it from me on my blog, I'll bump it down to $150... because I love you.]


  1. Hey Ash-how much are you selling the Quantaray 35-80mm lens for?

  2. Cool-I think we're going to pass and get an even wider lens one day. Thanks though! But hey-where is that fabric from? I am making some window treatments and need something just like that.

  3. Cool - no worries. The fabric is from Ikea... kind of fun, huh?!
