    I have no idea about any of these so, if anyone has any information, let me know if I scored anything interesting and any details I'd need to know to use them. :D

    Kodak Tourist Camera (620 film) with Deluxe Field Case (Serial # 104980-A)

    Olympus-Pen EES-2 (35mm) (Serial # 2952990)

    Graflex 22 Model 200 TLR (120 film) Graflex Graftar 85mm f3.5 On the lens, it says Century at the top. Wollensak for Graflex Inc Synchromatic on the bottom (Patent # 2495355) (Serial # 527273 etched very lightly inside the back.)

    All three seem to be in nice condition but could use a good cleaning.

    This can be a Tourist I or II, obviously using the 620 film. You can respool a 120 film onto a 620 spool if you have one. Here is how:

    http://www.inficad.com/~gstewart/respool.htm

    I don't know which lens combo you have but the Anastar is considered to be the better one. The other two are the Anaston and the Kodet. Worth taking a few shots with it. Need cleaning? Let me know what needs cleaning and I'll tell you how to do it.

    A pretty simple 35mm with zone focusing (as opposed to the EE model which has a fixed focus)

    This is a fairly common TLR. The 'Century Synchromatic' refers to the type of lens/shutter combo, there was another one, the Graphex shutter. You might want to shoot a roll with it, just for fun. :D Cleaning it? Let me know.

    Values:

    Tourist.....between $15 and $25

    Olympus......between $35 and $50

    Graflex 22......between $50 and $75


    Hope this helps.

    That actually helps a lot. When I have 5 free minutes, I'll drop you a PM about what kind of cleaning I'm gonna need to do. So far, they just look a bit dusty. Thanks a million! :mrgreen:
