I spend a week this summer at my in-laws in the northern part of Jutland, and as always when I’m up there I go out chasing old cameras at flea markets and in thrift stores.
And as always I end up with a couple (read 8) of New – old – cameras, that I just couldn’t live without 🙂
What did I get?
Well I got a few point and shooters, a Topca 35 FL – that looks really crappy, so crappy it wasn’t worth a photo in the gallery below 🙂 – a Canon Prima Zoom 70F, bought this one because it had a film in it. And then I got a Pentax PC-303S, I got no glue if it’s any good, but I really like Pentax, and it’s not that often I see a point and shoot from them.
I also bought three viewfinder cameras, a Zeiss Ikon Voigtländer Vitessa 500 L (the longest camera name ever) it looks pretty solid and the shutter is working, I just hope the old cell lightmeter is ok as well.
Second viewfinder is a Konica C35 AF, it just looks brand new, so it was a no brainier to bring that with me.
The last viewfinder is an Olympus 35 EC, not sure if this one is working yet, because it needs batteries to work, and I don’t have the ones needed at the moment. But it looks awesome, so I really hope it works.
Last but not least, I bought two rangefinders, A Konica C35, I’ve had two of those before, but this one is in black and in mint condition.
The other one is a Ricoh 500 G, also in black, but this one has a really nice patina. I also have one of these in the collection, but this one has a working lightmeter.
Looking forward to testing them out, in a near future.
