Camera Collection

I collect a lot of things. I suppose vintage dresses make up my 'main' collection but it's not my only one. Another collection (which is significantly smaller, but just as prized) is my camera collection. They're not all vintage, they're not all functioning, but they're all beautiful (to me, at least). I mainly collect them for aesthetic value.

Camera Collection
1st row L-R: Canon Canonet Junior; Fugica Automagic 35; Hanimex VC3300; Pentax Pino 35.

2nd row L-R: Kodak Brownie Camera (not sure of model - there are a couple on this page, though. I got mine for 2$!); Kodak Pocket Instamatic 100; Kodak Brownie Starflash; Kodak Instamatic 104.

3rd row L-R: Fanta Can Cam; Lomography Oktomat; Diana F+; Polaroid I-Zone.

4th row L-R: Polaroid Land Camera 1000; Polaroid Sun 600; Six-20 Brownie Junior Model; Kodak Jiffy Six 20 Series.

I found another one of these on etsy. Nifty, huh?

Six-20 Brownie Junior, Super Model. A little bit of info here.

Kodak introduced the Pocket Instamatic in 1970.

This is a little bit different than what I usually blog about but I found myself rather lacking inspiration and, as I spent so much time photographing my cameras this morning, I thought I may as well share them! 

Love,

  4. I remember the I-zone! That was like the coolest camera you could get in the late 90s. I've never seen the can cam. I'm in love with the Diana, I want it so bad, but I had to get the Smena instead (bought it for $20 on ebay). I love the brownies too. :D

  9. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful collection of cameras. I have been curious about how many you owned for some time as I often see a few of them scattered on the shelves behind you in your outfit pics!

  16. Wow! The old ones are beautiful, but somehow I even think the newer ones are even more cool! I see cameras people had when I was a kid, and somehow they are so uncool that they are cool. And you never see anyone with a Fanta-camera anymore!

  17. I love how you've displayed them Andi, looks super cool! Old cameras have so much more character than new ones.

  18. Wow! Amazing collection! Older cameras have so much personality, love them!

  21. I may be very old in posting a comment, but you did link to this in your most recent post so...

    Great collection! I just adore old cameras too. When my husband and I got together, I discovered he didn't collect anything! He's a graphic designer who also does photography, so I kind of forced him into collecting cameras. He enjoys it though a lot, and many of them still work, and we've used them - the film and developing it costs a lot though.
