Around 4 years ago, I loaded new batteries into my Nikon F100 film camera. We were moving house at the time, and I had moved the cameras to our business unit at Dundonald. When I went to collect them, two months later (we were two months in temporary accommodation) the F100 wasn’t working.
I set it down on a shelf and left it there. From time to time I tried to switch it on, but with no success. I thought about taking it to get repaired, – but then, what is a film camera worth these days? the cost of repair might be more than the cost of a second hand camera. A few times I considered just putting it in the recycling bin.
