Depreciated DSLRs

No.4272527 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Thinking about burning $50-70 on an obsolete ebay digital camera but I want to carry a big pretentious bastard that takes cheap auto focus glass so I can larp as an insurance adjuster from 2003 when I take photos of birds and shit.

I am considering the following among whatever other hipster shit I can find:
>Sony A100/A-whatever DSLR (or SLT if I find one cheap)
Fast Minolta af glass costs peanuts and it has ibis, seems like a nice deal all around.
>Finepix S2 Pro
Looks nice, Nikon film lenses are plentiful, is a brick of a machine, takes AAs and CF cards. Cumbersome but tickles my hipster sensibilities.
>Nikon D-whatever
Common and cheap as hell, literally just the above but more refined. Again, F-mount lenses are cheap.
>Olympus Evolt
Kodak sensor memes aside, the later gen ones are still barely worth peanuts. Crop sensors don't really concern me because I'm playing with older shit anyway.
>Canon EOS / Rebel
Very common but the lenses cost a lot even when used.

What are some other brick DSLRs I should keep an eye out for?

I think my Lumix GF1 finally shit the bed to death (shutter crapped out, "turn camera on and off again" error, it's fucked).
Anyway rip to my first "good" digital camera, it died as it lived: talking pictures inane bullshit.

Anyone got any recc for a camera for night pictures and video (I see a lot of noise in a lot of vids set at night and want to avoid as much as possible (if possible)) for Japan night life?

I'll be heading there for the springtime.

Am I retard? I recently got a Polaroid Now camera with a few packs of film, and I have been getting wildly different results. All these are just turning the camera on and taking a shot, not fucking around with the app and shit. Is it a mistake to not fuck around with the aperture and shutter speed, or did the film just get fried when I went through the airport. First photo exposed before airport, everything else after.

Which one should I keep?

guys what the fuck do I do here. I need a camera for travel/street photography, something that's compact and won't require me to bring my Z 6II out. now I've done my best to evaluate the pros and cons of each

>X100V is absolutely more compact, but the equivalent lens on the Z fc is better, and also interchangeable. the APS-C lens lineup for Nikon Z is garbage however, and unless they release a compact 50mm equivalent, I'll be stuck with this and the kit lens (some 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 whatever)
>X100V sensor is slightly better
> I already have a Z 6II so I'm familiar with the Nikon ecosystem, and all my FF lens can go on the Z fc if I absolutely need to, but that's not really the intent of the camera.
>I'm building somewhat of a relationship with Nikon, they're resharing a lot of my posts on their social platforms, so maintaining the ecosystem is a plus
>the X100V film simulations seem "fun" and look nice, but unless I'm horribly mistaken I can just recreate the exact same look and feel in LR/post

which would you keep, given the circumstances above?
