    Howdy howdy howdy. I know little to nothing about cameras other than the fact that they are painfully expensive. I've just purchased a few cheap film cameras to try and get into photography... again. I tried a few years ago, but the (mystery camera) I had stopped working after 1 roll of film. The second came out as all white/blueish. I was LIVID... the photos were supposed to be my girlfriend (who is about to be my ex-wife). Nothing dirty, but disappointing nonetheless, which caused me to lose interest in photography for quite a while. Anyhoo, now I'm gonna give it another go with what I hope is a decent selection of cameras which are listed below. I can't seem to find any helpful info on the ones I have or any that would be good starter cameras. I refuse to use a digital or "point and click" cameras. I don't think they are as interesting.

    Experience:
    Little to none

    Equipment:
    Kodak Retinette 1B
    Kodak Pony 135
    Kodak Pony 828
    Kodak Baby Brownie (?)
    Sears KS Auto
    Sears KS Super
    Mystery camera (can't find it right now)
