So Many Cool Cameras, So little Time!
I wanted to share some portraits of some of my favorite vintage cameras and others of interest. It's fun to trace the evolution of design through the years and see how the cameras have changed as various innovations were made. And it's even more fun to collect them, in some cases clean them up and restore them, and then take them out and shoot some rolls. I suspect you won't be able to do that in 2050 with your 1998 digital cameras. :) First up is the Waldorf Minicam from the 1940's. It's a 127 roll film camera with simple shutter, quite like the Sprocket Rocket in function. Wonderful little pocket camera and I posted a roll from it recently. You get 16 images on one roll of film. LSI should make a 35mm version of this fabulous little half frame cam.This photo was shot on film. Taken by clickiemcpete with a Canon 7E loaded with LOMO 400 negative film in Gill, MA, United States. This photo can also be found in the album Trip Down Vintage Lane, Cam Porn Content!.
