My five oldest vintage cameras

    For years I’ve been collecting old vintage cameras. If I walk into one on a flea market and I like the looks I’ll take it home. They don’t have to be in working order, I showcase them in a display cabinet at my home office. Nowadays the collection exists out of more then 20 cameras from different manufacturers. In this post I will share with you the five oldest vintage cameras in my collection.

    As I don’t know the exact manufacturing date I’ve used the introduction year of the specific models to sort them in order from some kind of new to old. Camera manufacturers that are present in the collection are Kodak, Beyer, Lubitel, Polaroid, Olympus and Minolta.

    Curious to know the gear I used to shot the pictures? Please check it here.
