not quite as old as patch17's, but here's mine. the Kodak No.2 Autographic Brownie, which was manufactured from 1915 - 1926

what i honestly think, the beauty of old vintage cameras lie not only in their design and aesthetic values, but also the fact that, YES! they can still be used, if properly taken care of! even if the film format or battery is obsolete, there are ways around it.

now..with digital cameras.. :think: maybe they will belong more to the realm of arcade video games machines, Commodore 64s, Ataris and Sinclairs...

Eh, patch17, got picture or not? Of the camera, and from the camera. Quite curious.
ok, managed to get some pictures of the camera...

Folded

Extended

the lovely rails

sticker in the back of camera

unfortunately i havent taken any pictures with it yet. apparently it uses 122 film, which i think is no longer available. i'll eventually adapt it one day to use 120 film. aperture and all shutter speeds, including "B" and "T" work.
