    Hi P Bailey, what gets me is that the photographs from these cameras have a n 'old timey feel' to them- that retro look is cool and I haven't been able to replicate well in photoshop :)

    Pardon my total ignorance, but is this from the camera, the film or development, or perhaps elements of all three?

    It may come from the old camera's lens. I use standard developing procedures. The only edit that was done with Photoshop, was a resize and clean up a few dust specks.

    Groovy. :D "Color filter model", I've read about some of these built-in filter cameras - is it typically a green filter, or is there a small selection offered within?

    Nice images. I like box cameras, I've decided. :p

    Love these shots - especially 2 and 3. Not only do the images themselves help create a 'retro' feel - but the subject matter reinforces that effect - cool.

    I have had quite a few cameras with built-in filters. They are generally yellow. This is the first green one that I have had. It actually works quite well considering the filter is a plastic material. These old box cameras are really qreat to shoot. The 6x9 format is fun to work with.
