    Cameras!

    [​IMG]

    I have over 60 cameras in my collection and most were used by my family over the years. As most of you know my father and grandfather were also avid photographers and I pretty much have every camera they ever used. Most I have the boxes and instructions for which make them extra unique.

    I remember my mother using this camera when I was growing up. Kodak Instamatic 124. I even have a few flash cubes for it.

    Note to self, clean the cameras first next time :blushing:

    My first 3 or 4 cameras were all Practicas and I still have a few around. Great hard working 35mms that I got a lot of mileage out of

    how fun. speaking of flash, a little trivia for everyone. the old school flashes on old field cameras with the big bulb were what was used as the light sabers base.

    Wow. Great collection. FWIW, I didn't even keep the box that my D50 came in, and that was only a few weeks ago. :)

    My sister started out her photography with a Kodak Instamatic, too :D. She got hers in 1967 or so? Might have been then... yes... Nice collection and well put into frames. I like it.
    Have you seen my photo of the Rolleiflex, here ?
