    I got some cameras for an early Christmas present.

    This is a Kodak Box camera (made in Canada). It's in great shape except it's missing the front lens.

    Kodak Hawkeye FlashFun, with instructions and original box.

    Kodak Instamatic X-15 with original display box and flash cubes.

    A couple more Polaroids.

    I like this one, Polaroid SX-70 SLR with metal body and Sonar Autofocus. Original box and instruction manual.

    My wife's uncle bought this new in the 60's. A Yashica EZ-matic 4. With Case, leather holster, original box and box sleeve.

    It's in great shape except I think that the shutter is stuck.

    Fun looking group! That SX-70 looks so awesome. I wish Polaroid wasn't D/C'ing Time Zero film for it. :(

    Even if that shutter is sticking on your new Yashica, that is fixable - and then looks like you'll have a lot of fun with that puppy! :D

    The yashica uses 126 film (or possibly 127)...which was discontinued by Kodak in 1990. It's available on-line but I'm not sure if I could get it developed locally or not.

    Either way, it feels great and I'd like to be able to shoot with it.

    Both 126 and 127 can still be bought new. 126 only comes in color and is made by Ferrania in Italy, it’s sold under names Solaris FG Plus or Adox 126 (not the Adox of Canada but of US & Germany - different companies). 127 is available in BW, color c-41 made by Efke and Maco, also you can get e-6 cut & re-rolled for 120
