NEW > Improved Model!

I’m so excited. Really, really excited. So excited that I spent all night playing with them.

I scored a bunch of vintage cameras off of Freecycle — but got way more than I anticipated from this sweet old man, just looking for another amateur photographer that would truly appreciate the goods. Letting him know that I already own an Argus Model K (rare) from 1939 and a No. 2-A Folding Autographic Brownie from around 1915, he was more than willing to place the following in my hands:

– 8 cameras, ranging from 1938 to 1978
– 2 handheld, 8 mm, movie cameras (1932 and 1960)
– 1 8mm movie projector (1960s)
– TONS of lenses and accessories to match the cameras

Unfortunately, I played too long (documenting, researching, looking) and the good light to take worthy pictures went down long ago.

I’ll give you this box shot from the Imperial Satellite, a cheap camera made in the 1950s.

Can’t wait to show you the rest.
