Want List

Postby Ger » Fri Jul 19, 2019 1:59 pm

Hi,
As a collector of all sorts, a nice feature would be a "Want List" button, that you could hit on a specific model then refer to the list when you are in the mood to buy something to add to your collection. Quite often i see other collectors cameras and find them very interesting..then completely forget what the model was! I use Discogs for my music collection. They have a want list button and it's very very helpful.
Just an idea.
Great site, love it.

Ger, I created a wishlist option. You can add a camera to your wishlist directly from the camera page, or from the wishlist page - https://collectiblend.com/Cameras/mycameraswishlist.php

I also added an "ideal price" or "wish price" field, so in the future CB members could opt-in for the automated search across new auctions or stores to see if this camera comes up for sale for acceptable price.

At this point wishlist is cameras only (no lenses), and just cameras which are listed on Collectiblend (no custom entries). Though you can add specific details about camera into the description field. Publicly viewable wishlist link is also available, as well as your username will be visible on the camera page (in case if potential seller wants to contact you directly).

Let me know if something doesn't work there :)

Hi!

Jeez, i wasn't expecting that!
I saw no interaction from the group so i presumed it was shelved.

Brilliant, really chuffed and a nice surprise!
Thank you, and will let you know how it goes.

Regards

Ger
