I just missed out on purchasing a used Minolta SRT101 film camera used in the Vietnam War.
It was on sale at eBay, broken and came with two lenses. I was hoping it wouldn’t sell so I could offer a lower price.
Naturally, it sold for $20.50 with $16.70 for shipping. This is what it looked like on eBay.
Even now I wish I had purchased it. A film camera with the ultimate provenance, a tour of duty in Viet Nam.

If you have ever seen the movie “We Were Solders” with Mel Gibson, read Some Notes on Being a War Correspondent by the man who wrote that book, Joseph L. Galloway.
I have nothing but respect for the men and women who have photographed war and conflict from the 1800’s onward.
I sure wish I had purchased that Vietnam War Correspondent Used Minolta SRT101 35mm camera.
