Evening,

Is there anyone as sad as I have become and started collecting Vintage Cameras ? If so have you specialized on a certain brands of type eg 120mm roll film / miniature camera's ? If you do collect where do you source them ?

Have a word with Ceri - he's the man to talk to.
Here's his website too.

Ignore Cole, there's nothing sad about it.

I've started with a Japanese Toakoki Seisakusho Gelto-D III, and some 35mm working camera's from Japan 70's. Moved to British 50's camera's (boxed with manuals) Now I am even buying old German, brass tripods......

Not in this country son


I have a bit of a weakness to, just pick them up as and well. Focus, gran ukraine. Whenever an opppertunity or time allows.

Using the Kodak 1a (120) mostly now but also the zenit-e and pentax-me

lol....
I think we all collect something, either DVDs, games, CDs, handbags, shoes, collectibles, stamps, memorabilia.... etc
Each to their own, nothing sad about it really.

I've never tried to collect old cameras, but I do seem to have acquired a few. And inherited a few. And got a box of 7 for 3.00 at a boot sale once. Adds up to quite a lot of junk.
Tried using some recently, the VP twin, zeiss baby box (was my mothers), and Dacora Digna, which was in that boot sale box.
My pf has some taken with the MPP microtechnical, the Rollei T, and the Oly 35RC. They're not junk.

But no, I don't collect vintage cameras!

(At the boot sale I was going to give a pound each for the cameras, but the seller knocked me me down to 3 quid the lot Smile )
