Camera porn: the entire collection (for now)

9

At the request of Buckshot I present: my camera shelf. Well, not really. Technically I have an actual camera shelf, but it’s crammed with all sorts of secondary junk as well: prints, camera bags, albums, boxes, bits and bobs… Anyway, this is the whole lot (exept fot a pinhole camera or two that are gathering up sunlight to produce long exposure solargraphs).

Most of these camera’s I got very cheap at flea markets or thrift stores, some of them were gifts. Only the lomography camera’s were store bought. I don’t really have one favorite camera (it changes with my mood), but I’m particularly attached to the Yashica-D and the Olympus Trip 35 because they belonged to my parents, and the Olympus XA because it’s a lovely camera to work with.

To be honest, the awesome Widelux 1500 doesn’t really belong to me, Ijust have it on loan for an indefinite time from a friend.

All of these camera’s are in working order, except por the paxette, wich has a rather faulty winding mechanism. And the Kodak Duaflex misses it´s winding knob, and I haven´t gotten around fixing that.

    Now that's a shelf...!!! Cool stuff, stratski! I really like the look of that Yashica too. What are those slrs on the same step as the Widelux? I can just about make out that one's a Praktika, but my phone screen's too small to see the others properly.

    @buckshot: thanks! The SLR's are a Praktica MTL3, a Praktica Super TL1000, A Pentor Super TL (which is basically a rebranded Praktica), a Yashica 109 and a Minolta XG1.

    You like the stairs too :) It is a great place to store cameras I think. Maybe it is time to put mine on my stairs again. I like the red Holga. Did you paint it yourself ? ?
