I have several vintage cameras, dating from about 1915 to the early 1970's. A few of them are not in working condition, so I use them for display only, but some are in good shape, and I currently use six of my vintage cameras:
- Yashica-D TLR (late 60's/early 70's, 120 film)
- Yashica 44 TLR (1950's, 127 film)
- Zeiss Ikon Ikomat 515 (1930's, 120 film)
- Zeiss Ikon Nettar 517 (1950's, 120 film)
- Zeiss Ikon with leaf shutter (1950's, 35mm film)
- Kodak Baby Brownie (1930's, 127 film)
In addition to the cameras listed above, I have a 1940's Kodak "Tourist" fold-out camera. I haven't used my Tourist camera yet because it takes 620 film, which is available only online. I will either order the film on the internet, or try respooling 120 film onto 620 spools.
Shooting on film with vintage cameras is so cool, I have a lot of fun with my old cameras! If you are getting bored and jaded with your too-easy, no-challenge digital camera, give a vintage camera a whirl.
