what to do with 35mm camera lens?? Answered

My old Minolta 35mm film camera has not been used in 10+ years. Time for a new purpose or recycle. What can be done with old lenses? I have several telephoto. Old 35mm camera bodies?
Those are great ideas! I'm really glad I asked.


strip down a web cam for the electronics and make youraself a digital camera.

They make adapters so you can use them with newer cameras.

But if you don't want to bother with any of that sell them on EBAY.

Buy an Minolta DSLR body and your all set with the lenses you already have.

Decent old lenses have a considerable resale value. Bodies, not so much.
