    Added to my "mini" point and shoot collection yesterday. $1.50 netted me a nice, working, albeit imperfect Konica Big Mini.

    Voigtlander Vitessa folding rangefinder, Voigtlander Ultramatic shutter-priority SLR, Canon T90, Nikon F4.

    The Vitessa and the F4 are working, the F4 even uses modern G lenses (but won't actuate VR) and my SB-600 Speedlite! The Ultramatic has a jammed shutter, and the T90 has a bent shutter blade but was working fine until whatever happened, happened.

    The picture was a lighting challenge on another forum I'm on. Single off-camera speedlite well to the right, silver projector screen on the left as a reflector, black side of reflectors behind and to the left of the table to remove wall reflection. The "grit" on the table is actually the flash reflected in the rough woodgrain.

    The Voigtlanders were my dad's cameras, both purchased brand new.

    He gave me the Vitessa in 1979 when I begged and begged and begged for something for Christmas that was better than my Instamatic. He handed it to me with a light meter, advised me to shoot Kodachrome, and left me to it!

    The Ultramatic was an amazing piece of kit. Shutter-priority or manual, leaf shutter, interchangeable lenses (I have the 50-f;2, the 35-f:4, and the 135-f:4,) and except for the self-powered light meter, not a single electron flowed through it anywhere!

    The T90 was something I salivated over, being an AE-1 owner at the time. But who could spend 1100 bucks on a camera?!??!!!! I got this one on eBay and used it occasionally for a couple of years until something happened that ate a shutter blade. I might pick up another one someday.....

    The F4 is just incredible. Works perfectly, feels great in the hand, full-featured and fully functional, and less than 150 bucks these days! A dial or button for everything, and everything on its own button or dial. No menus and no multi-function knobs. Will mount any F-mount lens in existence, non-AI, AI, AF, AF-D, all the way up to modern G lenses, and works with them as any camera made for them would have worked. (A pre-AI 50mm f:1.4 is mounted here.) Metering, AF, auto modes, everything.

    The Vitessa and the F4 each get a roll of Velvia every now and then, just for old times' sake!

    I realize I never listed my collection. Might have to gather them around for a picture.

    @limr WHERE'S YOUR COLLECTION??!!!??!?!

    Svabos, I'm not sure what it's worth, but there's still some darkroom guys out there, so there may be some interest if you're willing to ship it.

    thank you
    I think i got them at a verry nice price to.
    Not realy an idea what they are worth, but i bought 8 of them for only $5/piece, and one i got free because it has some damage

    The poor man was selling his lifetime collection, when i walked in to his house i tought i came in to a museum.
    Never seen so much old cameras together.
    To bad i did not have more money on me....
