donate your old cameras or printers!


A friend of mine, Carrie Olshan, a teacher at I.S 52 in Inwood NYC, is starting a photography workshop and is asking for donations of any old digital cameras, printers, photo paper, etc. Don’t we all have an old camera sitting in a box somewhere? Email me if you have something to donate and I’ll put you in touch with Carrie. Hey, it’s a tax write-off!

  1. Even really bad digital cameras? If so, I have one that I never use and I would donate!

  2. Are old film cameras allowed? Your post only said digital but just making sure.

  3. I’ll take old film cameras if he doesn’t need them ;) A lot of people think old stuff are not as good as modern, but the optics have actually not improved that much (just a bit). It’s mostly other things, like functions, image stabilisation and auto focus etc. There’s somewhat of a movement for the use of old cameras and lenses, many of them have groups on flickr. No wonder, when you can buy a supernice Carl Zeiss-lens for $15 if your looking in the right place ;)
