The scorching summer season calls for yet another memorable vacation by the beach or anywhere else you can relax. So did the vacationers and photographers of the yester-decades, so camera makers were always ready with their summer-themed ads to entice people into choosing their goods for taking those sunny vacation photos. Let's go down memory lane once more and take a look at these vintage camera ads after the jump!
If there’s one thing many camera makers and imaging companies did before that they probably hardly do these days is to tailor their advertisements according to themes and seasons. A few months ago, one of the previous Vintage Camera Ads installments revisited some beautiful Spring-themed camera ads from as far back as the 1910s and 1920s. Today, it’s all about getting the best photos with the right camera/s during the warm and sunny season. See if you can get enticed with the selection of Summer-themed vintage camera ads below:

A few months ago, Lomography made available a whole range of pinhole cameras made out of premium wood. Interested on knowing how good they are, I brought the medium format one on my last trip to Germany.
The expansive 6x12 format allows you to capture a vast space that makes for jaw-dropping photos; whether landscape, portrait or anything else you feel like shooting. Wait there’s more; the Belair X 6-12 can also shoot in both square 6x6 and regular 6x9 formats. So whatever shape you’re in, the Belair X 6-12 is ready to match you!

Although he uses both digital and analog gears, he still regards using film as a more intimate way of creating images. Let's all welcome our newcomer from Brazil, Fernando Monteiro.
