Yes, in the POSTAL mail, not the electronic kind, came a flier (who sends fliers) from Penn Camera advertising … film and paper supplies for students. And a Promaster 2500PK camera and lens package for $169.95. Granted, there are inkjet supplies on here, too. And if you’re still shooting film some of these deals look […]
