Hello. :)

Although I'm not planning on purchasing and 35mm movie camera any time soon I would like to make a few enquiries in that direction.

How cheap can a working 35mm movie camera in nice condition come? I'm particularly interested in the B&H Eyemo. I think I'll end up owning one someday.

Best Regards - Matthew Buick :)

I own a pair of DeVry cameras, got them for $50 each. Solid cameras even if a bit weird.

If I had to get a really cheap 35mm camera, I'd go for the Konvas. The Eyemo is really a clunker, I own one and it's really not user friendly. I don't like it handheld either. I wish Bolex made a 35mm version of the H16, that would have been probably my favorite MOS camera ever.

You guys might like the look of this Konvas 2M that's on eBay right now then. As i type this it's currently still at only $50 for the entire set. (Though that will clearly go up over the next few days, but def still worth a peak).

What do you think? - Can't knock that value for a 35mm movie camera.
