Manufacturer:Model Manufacture years Serial Number Date acquiredPrice PaidComments
AGFA: PD-16 Antar camera  AGFA: PD-16 Antarc1935 No serial#  This did not come with box or any other items(film mask for split pictures, or instruction book.) Nice art deco version lots of shiny black lacquer paint and nickle plate.Has the view finder with mask that flips up for large frame pictures. High end PD-16 folder with Wollensak shutter and internal yellow filter. A great addition.. And my PD-16 family collection grows!
AGFA ANSCO: Clipper PD-16 camera  AGFA ANSCO: Clipper PD-161936-1939 No serial # With box. early version with flip up finder and the extension for the lens board is painted black . no manual or leather case. On the inside where the patent number would be it says "Patent pending" ** To complete my Clipper collection I need the 2 other versions.The middle version and the latter version. Looks the same as the flash clipper with out the flash attachment.**
AGFA ANSCO: Clipper Senior PD-16 camera  AGFA ANSCO: Clipper Senior PD-16 No serial # One of those odd in between cameras for the Clipper series. Mine has box and instructions, And works the same as any standard clipper camera.
AGFA ANSCO: Clipper Special camera  AGFA ANSCO: Clipper Specialc1938-1940 No serial# I think I might like the Clipper series. Or it could be I like Agfa.When I got it my wife said I got a rusty something that might be a camera. Shutter and every thing works.Basically it is the fancy version of the venerable PD16 clipper early versions,Minus the flip up sight and the basic shutter assembly.I wish they made film for this as I would like to try it out. The picture used here is mine.. not so rusty now is it :)
AGFA ANSCO: Memo camera  AGFA ANSCO: Memo1939 No serial#  Agfa Memo. came with one Ansco cartridge not the Agfa one. Unique in the way it winds,from right to left. still have some of the original neck cord( need to repair with new cord)
AGFA ANSCO: PD-16 Champion camera  AGFA ANSCO: PD-16 Champion No serial #  Badged as Agfa PD-16 Champion and made by AGFA ANSCO. It is the same as a standard PD-16 Clipper. Has Agfa branding on back leatherette, Box, and instruction manual. It has the same Unifo double lens as the Clipper,Only difference in I see besides badging, Is the top piece with the view finder is silver instead of black, and the wind knob is nickle plated,The leatherette is "pebble" grain instead of the other normal type. This might be an in between model using left over stock parts before the release of of the Flash Clipper(the silver top is standard on the the flash). **THIS CAMERA IS NOT LISTED IN McKeown's price guide**
AGFA ANSCO: Plenax PD-16 camera  AGFA ANSCO: Plenax PD-161935 No Serial # Art deco version, Comes with box. Mint condition..Another Pd-16 for the collection.
Ansco: Ansco Box camera  Ansco: Ansco Box1910 No Serial # This is a original Anthony & Scoville box camera. This was made just before the company started officially to abbreviate their name to ANSCO. It is a unusual design, and wonderfully made. All wood construction, And is some what large size. the last patent date on mine is from 1903. it is in fantastic shape no loss of covering or handle. Glad to have this rare camera! ** just a note- Unsure of the actual name of the camera. On www.collection-appareils.fr, It appears under the manufacture Anthony and Scovill with the name "Box". More research!**
Ansco: Buster Brown special No.0 camera  Ansco: Buster Brown special No.01923 No Serial # with box, instructions, never used. it's a tiny little box camera! Photo showing is a photo I took of the one I have.
Ansco: Color Clipper camera  Ansco: Color Clipper1942 No Serial # The last of the Clipper series. This almost completes my Clipper collection. Not in bad shape,typical wear. Just the camera no other bits with it. Formerly owned by another collector.
Ansco: Flash Champion camera  Ansco: Flash Champion1940s no serial# Poor thing was neglected.It looked like it had been stored UNDER a barn not in it. Little handle disintegrated, but the leather case is in remarkable condition and so is the inside of the camera.Shutter works, and it extends easily. I think they took clues from sherman tanks and built them almost the same way. I felt bad for the little thing..Well it's not so little.. It cleaned up nicely. lens is clear and the built in yellow filter is clear.Still has some rust, but that happens even to the best.
Ansco: Rediflex camera  Ansco: Rediflex1950 No serial # Rediflex. ........ came with the box and instructions. one thing I noticed on all of the cheaper tlr versions, the mirrors are always loose. the rattle when you move them .
Apparat & Kamerabau: Arette I A (1956) camera  Apparat & Kamerabau: Arette I A (1956)c1956 172553 Pronto shutter. No maker marks just the name Arette IA on top of view finder. Mine is different looking slightly than the one used for the main picture for the price page for this camera.
Argus: 100 camera  Argus: 100 No Serial # 1985-86 Argus 100 35mm camera. All plastic, requires 2 AA batteries for the flash only. Made in China, with the lens proclaiming to be made in Japan. A perfect type camera for doing Lomo type photography. I acquired it because it was still in the box!
Argus: Argus A Black camera  Argus: Argus A Black1936-1941 198096 have case and instruction book. Beautifully made camera. It feels solid and not to light or heavy Mine is wonderfully in near pristine condition. no damage and every thing function in tip top shape. Mine is 3rd version, made in 1941. Glad to have this in my collection.
Argus: Argus C3 camera  Argus: Argus C31939-1966 518490  The "Brick" range finder. All functioning, except the little orange window for the range finder needs a good clean. Not sure about the date But the serial number is bellow the film rail, Stamped into the body. Any way.. It's a Argus C3.
Argus: Argus Seventy-Five camera  Argus: Argus Seventy-Five1953-1958 No serial# Mine has the date stamped inside for date of manufacture-October 26th 1959. Has neck strap and functions. No flash and it has been damaged some time ago but was fixed and does not hurt it.
Asahi: Pentax A 3000 camera  Asahi: Pentax A 30001985 3477723  It seems that around that 1985 or so period cameras were trying to look futuristic, and almost like each other (Try Canon T-50 ) This came with all you see in the picture and then some other bits not in it. Nice and clean and it was well loved by the previous owner.
Asahi: Pentax K1000 camera  Asahi: Pentax K10001976-1997 7787479 Mine was made in Hong Kong around 1978-79. No extra bits came with it. A very very clean camera.
Asahi: Pentax ME Super camera  Asahi: Pentax ME Super1980-1986 0610 2205107 With flash, and lens and owners manual and paper work. Useful info..Uses 2 batteries-Eveready 576E or Mallory MS76H or equivalent (need update batteries)
Asahi: Pentax Spotmatic (SP) II (black) camera  Asahi: Pentax Spotmatic (SP) II (black)1971 5163071  The SP II version. Only came with the one lens, but will look for the original lens. As is natural for the paint scheme, it has paint loss in all the places where it rubs something or sits. Still it is a beautiful camera, And fully functioning on all settings. Now I see why people think highly of the spotmatics.
Balda: Baldinette (1950) camera  Balda: Baldinette (1950)1950 2985530 lens Nifty little 135mm folder. It is a very pretty little camera. Need to find owners manual and a leather case.One unusual thing.. The shutter release button is on the left side next to the rewind knob. It took a bit to get used to that.I kept hitting the button on the right side. It's the door release button that's on the right side. DON"T FORGET to cock the shutter when a picture presents it's self......
Bell & Howell: bc 111 camera  Bell & Howell: bc 111 No serial# What is this? Another little instamatic among all those amazing cameras? This little 110 instamatic seems to be common,but some how not? 1970's And I think it uses a flip flash like Kodak.Hey.. it was unloved.. so why not.
Bell & Howell: Filmo Enlarger camera  Bell & Howell: Filmo Enlarger No Serial # Technically it is camera. but it does not get used as a camera you carry. It is a Cine enlarger camera for taking movie still pictures. it is 14 or 15 inches long, and I would consider a plate type camera.It used Gavert pack film in the holder and you exposed it by moving the dark slide. No lens adjustment, and simple 1 speed shutter. To use it, you would mount it to a Filmo 57 cine projector. From 1929, Brand new in the box with instructions. RARE and unique.
Berning Robot: Robot II camera  Berning Robot: Robot II1939-1951 B 114300  My little robot! Fully functioning, only issues- The original leatherette was replaced a long time ago with a Naugahyde type brown covering that was pealing off. I did replace it with proper leatherette. It also had a few scuff marks on the shiny silver. small and heavy and wonderful! Thought I would not get one due to price, But this one needed a good home and found me.***NOTE- While reskining the camera I discovered the that the lens mount had gaskets made of paper, News paper, or a page from a book. It was in German! I did save the gaskets and re installed them back! *** Xenar lens #2380480
Canon: Canon 110 ED camera  Canon: Canon 110 ED1975 310697 For a 110 it's heavy, and has a solid feel. mine came with display case ,paper work, the flash. you can add the date to the picture (except it stops at 1986) by adjusting three little switches on the side. you can also set the distance 2-30ft (infinity) . uses a battery to operate (6volt A544 battery) And 2 AA batteries for the flash.

Canon: Pellix (chrome) camera  Canon: Pellix (chrome)1965-1966 147612 I bought this from a good source, it was shipped to me from Japan. It does not (yet) have the standard 50mm lens, it ccame with the Canon FL 200mm lens. It is a beautiful and well maintained camera.

Certo: Dolly (3x4) A camera  Certo: Dolly (3x4) Ac1930-1937 No Serial # I bought this not knowing what it was off of Ebay. I knew it was a folder, and missing all the leatherette. Once it arrived, I was able to find out what it was. Several diffrent version of the Dolly were made over the years. Compur Shutters, Vario shutter and others were used. It is fully functional bellows are very nice, ready to use. Just naked is all.

Dover Film Corp.: Dover 620 A camera  Dover Film Corp.: Dover 620 Ac1950 3343  The Dover 620 A. this one missing the reflector for the flash. It is actually a simple to use camera, with the instructions on back. You do not see many of these around. Made in Dover, New Hampshire around 1950. It was hard to take a picture of due to that enormous wind up knob on the bottom of camera. The flash is battery operated and built onto the left side. It is connected to the simple shutter. Aperture settings is a simple wheel type. It is actually well built. I like it.

Federal: Enlarger No.120 camera  Federal: Enlarger No.120 D-12911  Photo Enlarger from 1935-37. I purchased this rare hobbyist enlarger in pieces, and extremely dirty. I cleaned and reassembled and the only thing left is a new power cord. Negative carrier is set up for all sizes of roll film, and has several masks for that. It is adjustable up to 8x10.
Federal: Enlarger No.219 camera  Federal: Enlarger No.219 E-2669  Photo Enlarger from 1939-41. Unlike the No.120, this has bellows and the option to change to different lenses. it also has a red filter beneath the lens that can rotate out of the way. Not much information on the web for either enlargers. But no matter.
Federal: Model 16A Enlarging Camera camera  Federal: Model 16A Enlarging Camera   1948-49 Federal Enlarging Camera for 16mm movie film. The actual body of the camera is a Fed-Flash and uses 127 roll film. The rod sticking out the side is for the simple shutter. you have to push in and make the exposure by your desired time, and pull it back out. The top lever adjust the view finder, get the section of film you want a picture of, and then slide the assembly down to the camera lens, make your exposure and move on to the next. Simple!! Oh don't forget to plug the light in! Other version of this camera for 8mm as well.
Graflex: Compact Graflex camera  Graflex: Compact Graflex1915-1925 45394, 51383  Yes what you see are 2 compact Graflex in a sorry state. What I am going to do is go against what I normally do and take these 2 to make 1 complete working Compact Graflex. The one missing most of the leather covering Is the one complete with working hardware. The other Has a super nice outer,tight bellows,and the hood,But missing most of the hardware. Both have nice and clean curtains.Question remains..Why do this? My response- Because of the rarity of a complete WORKING compact, and the price that goes with it..And the fact I am saving one from the dumpster, Why not put the effort into it. A labor of love, and a learning experience.
Graflex: National Graflex camera  Graflex: National Graflex1933-1941 206182  Series II version. NOT mint condition by looks, But it is complete (minus Leatherette) And Mirror is clear, Lens is dusty, and shutter curtain is light tight and no tears. This is one of my top wanted cameras. I love how it looksSo compact, and how when you look at the knobs, dials, and levers how complicate it seems, which is typical Graflex when it is not that complicated, And it uses 120 roll film. In the viewing hood there is also a magnifier lens that swings up. The lens is removable, and has all the data plates to help you out. I simply love it.
Graflex: Revolving Back (RB) Graflex Junior camera  Graflex: Revolving Back (RB) Graflex Junior1915-1923 3159185 lens  it's a little bit rough, but not horrible shape and the curtain is all there and it works! leather missing bits on corners, view finder hood has a small tear, and is a bit dirty.

Herbert George: Imperial Debonair camera  Herbert George: Imperial Debonairc1950s No serial # This to me looks like the after affects of a designer who pitched a all night drunk and had to work the next day. Make it totally funky and off the wall. I have to admit I sort of like it .. it has grown on me. Needs minor repairs, a few chips missing in the Bakelite. It does need the flash.. it looks a lot better with it to me.
Honeywell: Repronar Model 805 A camera  Honeywell: Repronar Model 805 A #7054  Honeywell Repronar 805 A Slide copier camera. Most I have found out it was used largely for the Medical / Science field.I can also see other uses for it as well. 35mm film camera, the body reminds me of a Pentax type. The flash is inside the base the same as the standard view light. It has a slot for a electric film winder motor. This was my Christmas present from my family because I wanted this unique thing in my collection. Mine is full functioning except I think it will be difficult to find a replacement for the light if need be. Very sturdy and heavy and large -over 4 feet tall. Very neat and unique!
Hüttig: Standard camera  Hüttig: Standardc1907 14018 lens  Plate camera single bellows extension.

Bellows are light tight,But tatty (the outer black covering flaked off) and in need of replacement. The view finder is missing the trim ring that holds it in place. Leather peeling off in places but complete.Shutter works but does stick, lens is surprisingly clear minus some dust. This was found in a abandon house. I have decided to let it be just like it is.

Has a slight crack in the body, But still usable. going to roll some 120 and have fun!
Kodak Eastman: Brownie No.2 Model B (US) camera  Kodak Eastman: Brownie No.2 Model B (US)1901-1933 No Serial # box camera has handle and users manual. I thought I would never have any just because of them.. "Plain boring rectangles that are a simpletons answer to photography" and rather common. Well it's different now. I actually like them.

Kodak Eastman: Brownie StarFlash camera  Kodak Eastman: Brownie StarFlash1957-1965 No Serial # Thirft store find, couldn't leave it there so it came home. Has a roll of used film in it (will get developed just to see) I think since it has the original Rayovac pen light batteries and the film is original from the period.. That might have been the only time it was ever used. Yes one of the old batteries leaked,But didn't damage anything beyond repair...
Kodak Eastman: Cine model B camera  Kodak Eastman: Cine model Bc1923 37584  The Cine Kodak model B. It's heavy and sturdy.Mine is the early version.Later version has an extended lens.Complete with case and manuals, and 100 foot roll of Kodachrome cine film.For some reason I like this one a lot. The only number on it is on the wind up handle.
Kodak Eastman: Duo Six-20 camera  Kodak Eastman: Duo Six-201933-1937 226698K I bought this thinking it was a Retina parts camera from Ebay. After receiving it I quickly found out it wasn't a Retina.It is a bit rough, but very fixable. Due to it being in better shape, some what rare, it has stepped away from "parts camera" status and will have a home in my collection and repaired. **GRRR.. still have to find a parts camera again!**
Kodak Eastman: EK6 camera  Kodak Eastman: EK61976-1978 ??????? This one survived the name plate removal as part of the Polaroid vs Kodak settlement, but so many others have as well. It also Has box with it. Don't expect to ever use it.The instant film for this is extremely rare and expired,And I don't think any one will make any. Oh.. but you can find the batteries for it, Flash bars that flip,or other things. Also the design..It's like holding a book in front of you with a hole cut into it so you can see through it. **The Kodak Instant cameras don't get much love from what I see.You can find them reasonably cheap almost free,and hardly used.But like all things, they could possible become highly sought after the more hard to find they become.They do have a place in the Kodak world.**
Kodak Eastman: EK6 camera  Kodak Eastman: EK61976-1978 ?????? Another ek6 has found its way to my collection.
Kodak Eastman: Folding Brownie No.3A camera  Kodak Eastman: Folding Brownie No.3A1904-1907 No Serial # This was/ is/ will be a project.Some one a long time ago did a number on it. It is a Folding Brownie 3A model A.. But with many issues. Most noticeable is there is NO leather covering. any where on it Except inside on the back. 2nd thing..It does not have the Kodak shutter, Instead it has a Seneca Trio shutter.. 3rd thing.. The hinge for the back door has gone I guess when they stripped the leather. But the black bellows is original and in very good shape and all the metal bits are there that are original to it. HERE is my game plan for it.. #1 Find the correct shutter and lens #2 In its wooden state.. I think I will leave that way but clean it up and maybe a light shellack coat. The wood grain and the way it is made looks fantastic. So that means I won't releather it.**UPDATE..I have the correct shutter and lens. The project continues** #3 Fix a Back door hinge. and make it light tight properly. #4 Clean up all the metal bits. Hey.. It's over a hundred years old, And has come a long way to now..
Kodak Eastman: Folding Hawk-Eye Special No.3A camera  Kodak Eastman: Folding Hawk-Eye Special No.3A1929-1933 1721 I bought this as a parts camera a while back for the bellows because of it missing shutter and lens.The outside looked liked it had been dragged through decades of dirt. Bellows is top notch almost new, but it is missing the handle.I made the mistake of cleaning the years of nasty of of it while I was bored, and now along with my other KODAK projects I find my self searching for the shutter and lens.It is all stamped metal body and the typical center finder of a hawk-eye. I guess since it's not in horrible shape.. I am going to fix it up like my others. Yes, I know...I seem to like project kodaks more than all complete good looking ones. I also thought I wasn't going to collect them so much either.... ** I have acquired the right Kodex shutter to make it complete again.UPDATED PICTURE SOON!**
Kodak Eastman: Hawk-Eye Instamatic II camera  Kodak Eastman: Hawk-Eye Instamatic II1969-1975 No Serial # Thrift store find. has little carry case and instructions. As far as I can tell it has never been used, never had batteries in it.

Kodak Eastman: Instamatic 100 camera  Kodak Eastman: Instamatic 1001963-1966 No serial #  This Instamatic version was the first Instamatic of the line to be released in the USA. The only one before this was the export Instamatic 50. Has box and instructions and wrist strap. A good addition to the collection.I waited a while to find one with a box not destroyed with the instructions.
Kodak Eastman: Instamatic 104 camera  Kodak Eastman: Instamatic 1041965-1968 No serial # Another instamatic for the Instamatic collection that I thought I would not get into... but it seems I did. uses flash cubes, NOT Magic Cubes.Takes two AAA batteries ( This one had the ORIGINALS in it.. but zero damage done to the battery compartment) and functions like a Instamatic should.

No Instamatic 50's were sold in the United States.They were released 6 to 8 months before the 1st Instamatic 100 in the United States. Mine was made in USA and is stamped "made in USA" under the Kodak Brand. Mine does not have the addition flash for the hot shoe, or the wrist strap. I am very happy to have this Instamatic in my family.
Kodak Eastman: Instamatic 50 camera  Kodak Eastman: Instamatic 501963-1965 No Serial #  The Original Instamatic 50 made in England. This was the very 1st produced Instamatic series that started the craze.
Kodak Eastman: Instamatic 500 camera  Kodak Eastman: Instamatic 5001964-1966 EK725428 One of the "Serious" instamatics. Made in Germany with the collapsible Compur Shutter, And Gossen meter, and shoe for flash. Made out of metal and pretty! Has a nice solid feel when holding it, winder easy to use, meter and view finder excellent. I like this little jewel.
Kodak Eastman: Instamatic 814 camera  Kodak Eastman: Instamatic 8141968-1970 070409  The 814 Instamatic. 2 things I noticed the unusual way you wind it, and how heavy it is. it is a range finder coupled to the lens, also has a light meter installed. Was not able to test it ..no batteries for it. it has some black paint loss. It also came with a case, Instruction book, and 1 unused roll of film and one used roll in the camera. I actually like it. Another "Serious" Automatic.
Kodak Eastman: Instamatic X-15 camera  Kodak Eastman: Instamatic X-151970-1976 No serial # I don't know why I got this one. It was dirty and tossed on a shelf neglected. But I do remember when I was a kid, I used this type to take pictures.
Kodak Eastman: Jiffy Kodak Six-20 Series II camera  Kodak Eastman: Jiffy Kodak Six-20 Series II1937-1948 No Serial # Shows signs of being stored.. Leatherette peeling up But it has never been used. My feelings is this...It's an OK thing for what it is. Nothing fancy or crazy about it. Morph a Box camera and you have this. Still.. For some reason I keep thinking that this would be the camera I would use at a funeral or as an undertaker.But that's for this model,not the art deco version.
Kodak Eastman: Kodak 35 camera  Kodak Eastman: Kodak 351938-1948 ER 3205 Needs a good clean.Has the black cover for the rangefinder and black winding knobs. Need to find the manual and leather case.It is a little front heavy with all that lens and metal and then the bakelite body bits(That's not leather or leatherette that is black) I think this is my favorite Kodak camera as far as looks.I had to repair mine, The long secondary mirror for the rangefinder came unglued some time in it's past, But working perfectly now!
Kodak Eastman: Pocket Instamatic 40 camera  Kodak Eastman: Pocket Instamatic 401972-1975 No serial # little pocket instamatic 40. came with box and a few magic flash cubes. If to be used the battery will have to be replaced if to use the flash.
Kodak Eastman: Retinette IB (045) camera  Kodak Eastman: Retinette IB (045)1963-1966 461719 A very clean and shiny Retinette. Every thing seems to function as it should. Think I will try some film in it!
Kodak Eastman: Signet 50 camera  Kodak Eastman: Signet 501957-1960 O30993 This has the ever ready case, and all the little film cards for info. Missing the neck strap. The meter is acurate too.
Kodak Eastman: Stereo-Kodak 35 (brown) camera  Kodak Eastman: Stereo-Kodak 35 (brown)1954-1959 052053 Complete with case and instruction manual.Another addition to my Stereo cameras. I think from what I see between the Stereo Realist and this one I think I like this one is better as for looks. But I plan on using this one to shoot with after some maintenance **Picture coming shortly**
Kodak Eastman: Trimlite Instamatic 18 camera  Kodak Eastman: Trimlite Instamatic 181975-1979 No Serial # 1st 110 in my collection. Why I got it I don't know.110 cameras aren't my cup of tea.Maybe because it had the box and papers, sealed roll of film. I have a flash bar to make it a complete package. Simple, no batteries, reminds me of birthday parties I used to go to when I was little.It was once owned by some one named "Maxine"...
Konishiroku (Konica): Konica Autoreflex T camera  Konishiroku (Konica): Konica Autoreflex T1968-1970 729239  Silver bodied version with original lens. Batteries are dead so I was unable to test the meter. Has a minor ding and some wear on paint. Thrift store find.

Kuribayashi (Petri): Petri 7 camera  Kuribayashi (Petri): Petri 71961  came with box, manual, lens cap and case. meter works but how accurate... I did not try to find out yet.

Kuribayashi (Petri): Petri FT camera  Kuribayashi (Petri): Petri FT1967 778558 comes with lenses, caps, camera case. Funny thing I discovered, it suposed to have a flash sync port on the left side near the lens. This does not, yet it has the shoe mount. ???? So how you supposed to use a flash? Now i can understand why Petri went bankrupt.
Leitz: Leica box camera  Leitz: Leica box No serial# SURPRISE!!! Well it's not a camera, but it did have one at some time in it's past. I thought hey..why not add this since when I showed it, it made a big hit. How did I get this? It was used as part of a shipping box for some Kodak Parts I got a year or so ago! I suppose I could turn it into a pin hole camera. No won't do that. I think it was for a Leica IIIc around the late 40's or 50's. No matter.. Rare box and the closest I have come to owning a Leica !
Lumiere & Cie: Lumirex camera  Lumiere & Cie: Lumirex1934-1952 ....... Not very sure if it is a Lumirex or if another model type. Research Time! From around 1935. Will add more after researching.
Lumiere & Cie: Lumix camera  Lumiere & Cie: Lumix1936-1939 F 72696 Antique store find. This one is not listed in the data base.This is taken from Collection d'appareils by Sylvain Halgand-"The Lumix were designed to be cheap and to sell parts of the previous ranges when renewing models. The bodies are derived from stock Lumirex . The installation of the supply had to be random and that is probably what explains the existence of variants. Thereon , the winding knob of the film is striated , while on others it is Diamond" Uses 120 film and dates from around 1936-40.There are 4 different versions of these cameras due to lens configuration.
Lumiere & Cie: Nada camera  Lumiere & Cie: Nada1930-1931 3342 Nada Or in slang terms means "Nothing" So is this the "nothing" camera? No I think not . French Lumiere & Cie. It's actually a pretty camera, Lots of shiny nickle plate.The leather is dark brown not black. On the back is embossed on the leather is a elongated triangle with the words "NADA" and "Lumiere" According to www.collection-appareils.fr Website The 2 red marks on the bed are the initials J (Jougla) and L (Lumiere) and "Na" on the J and "Da" on the L. I think it might have something to do with Lumiere and Jougla company... Hmmm More research. It uses 120 film as well!!!
Mamiya: Mamiya Sekor 500 DTL camera  Mamiya: Mamiya Sekor 500 DTL1969 542315 With lens and a Vivitar flash and aftermarket case full of other extra bits.***Takes Battery - Eveready S- 76E, Mallory MS-76, or Ray-O-Vac RS-76 (need to update to new battery)
Mar-Crest: Mar-Crest camera  Mar-Crest: Mar-Crestc1960s No serial# One of those Chicago Bakelite candid cameras. Comes with box. Any way..I must also add this.. There are many other cameras that share the same body style and shutter. I wonder if it was a marketing ploy to have so many different named ones, or something else entirely.I need to look into this more.Still fun to collect,and some of the names are unique. If you don't believe me.. Take a look here-http://camera-wiki.org/wiki/The_Chicago_Cluster
Minolta: Freedom Family Zoom camera  Minolta: Freedom Family Zoom 8610092 Simple point and shoot 35mm camera. From the 1990's I suspect. Uses two AA batteries. A freebie from a friend.
Minolta: Hi-matic 7 S camera  Minolta: Hi-matic 7 S1966 408021 slight bent on the end of the lens barrel, but still functioning and probably saved by the ever ready case that protected it. Shutter blades are always an issue for sticking.. but these work!
Minolta: Maxxum 7000 AF camera  Minolta: Maxxum 7000 AF1985 34108911 Camera body. I almost always see them missing lenses. but when I research I find people liked them. Will be looking for the lens for this, Since it seems to work after fresh batteries installed.
Minolta: Minolta 110 Zoom SLR camera  Minolta: Minolta 110 Zoom SLR1976 No Serial# One of the extreme few 110 cameras I am interested in.It's different looking so it makes it cool for my collection it is missing the rubber sun shade though.

It has a few scuff marks but works well and came with the little remote control. I got it becouse I simply wanted to see what all the fuss was about on the Mju series. It is a lot newer than I like but we shall see.
Olympus: Olympus Pen EES-2 camera  Olympus: Olympus Pen EES-21968-1971 2282334  35mm half frame camera. Basicly a point and shoot type with the aperture blades controlled by the light meter that surrounds the lens. simple focus no guess work. mine is functioning but it seems that a common problem is the aperture blades sticking closed.

Oshiro: Lumica camera  Oshiro: Lumica1956 No. 2301 (lens)  Basic view finder 35mm. Rektor shutter. It is a heavy little thing.

Polaroid: One Step BC camera  Polaroid: One Step BC1976 CNA931AA My second One Step. Got this one free from a family member. As I stated on my first one..I don't like the shutter button location. It's in a awkward position.Other than that..Load some SX-70 instant film cartridge and go at it.Oh Don't forget the Flash Bar!
Polaroid: One Step Closeup camera  Polaroid: One Step Closeup1993 85M80921NDDA A friend of mine at my job gave me this besides throwing it away. So I said "Thank you ! It will have a good home." And that's about it..
Polaroid: One Step Flash camera  Polaroid: One Step Flash1993 BOM 8368 VH Another in the 600 series. Mine has the tan front (the older of the one step flash) A thrift store save.

Polaroid: Polaroid 101 camera  Polaroid: Polaroid 1011964-1967 D146701 The 101n if I remember right was supposed to be for businesses or other things. it is a range finder, but not as good as the 250 with Zeiss finder. Came with caase and what you see.
Polaroid: Polaroid 102 camera  Polaroid: Polaroid 1021964-1967 DA109366 The elusive 102 with the gold tinted front. this was the last one I needed for my small 1st automatics collection
Polaroid: Polaroid 103 camera  Polaroid: Polaroid 1031965-1967 M719303 ...and here we are almost to the full plastic Polaroid.

Polaroid: Polaroid 220 camera  Polaroid: Polaroid 2201967-1969 ZD779331 with case ,Flash,Manual and cold clip.
Polaroid: Polaroid 250 camera  Polaroid: Polaroid 2501967-1969 ZA817570  My 1st model 250. Came with storage case, flash,developing timer #128, film, all documentation, Flash bulbs, and self timer #192. I like this model, It has good feel, not to heavy or light, and Kudos to the Zeiss range finder. Remember to keep them rollers clean!
Polaroid: Polaroid 250 camera  Polaroid: Polaroid 2501967-1969 ZA456983 My second 250. needs minor repair on battery connector (had battery in it). Just camera and outer shell with owners manual. no other accessories, unlike my first one.
Polaroid: Polaroid 430 camera  Polaroid: Polaroid 4301971-1977 BX299519  No flash or accessories came with this. Found this little jewel neglected in a box full of of junk. Gave a $1 for it. It does have the cold clip, and a instruction sheet about the flash. Timer on the back works, and the insides are good and clean..no rust. Battery connectors will need a clean as it still had the original battery in it.
Polaroid: Polaroid 430 camera  Polaroid: Polaroid 4301971-1977 BX221756 You know you have to many when you can not remember that you have one already!

Polaroid: Polaroid 700 camera  Polaroid: Polaroid 7001955-1957 A 20716 "The 700" This would be a model 95A turned into a little more serious camera. I believe this is the only version with an added range finder done at the factory,Before the latter versions with it built into the body.Other than the leather and bellows color, and the front face plate,all else is standard 95A.**A note about the range finder-The finder has no makers marking,but the flash guide plate on top has the Polaroid logo.The casting for the finder is made for this body style and not an aftermarket addition.**
Polaroid: Polaroid 80 (Highlander) camera  Polaroid: Polaroid 80 (Highlander)1954-1957 H706132 Came with original box , all instructions and papers.Also came with Model 281 flash gun with box and instructions, and the model pr-23 exposure meter in box. ***Produced: 1954-1957 / Original Retail: $69.95 Estimated Production: 610,000 - 730,000***
Polaroid: Polaroid 800 camera  Polaroid: Polaroid 8001957-1962 LA328674 The 800. what can I say? It is a 150 with the 700 colors and bellows. this one has no other bits or case, just the camera. it was barely used..if any, the insides are all nice and shinny.
Polaroid: Polaroid 80A (Highlander) camera  Polaroid: Polaroid 80A (Highlander)1957-1959 H936540 No extra parts or flash. Last camera needed to complete the Model 80 collection.***Produced: 1957-1959 / Original Retail: $72.75 Estimated Production: 400,000 - 570,000***

Polaroid: Polaroid 900 Electric Eye camera  Polaroid: Polaroid 900 Electric Eye1960-1963 E408186 The 900 is almost totally different from the 800. I know the 850 was the first Electric Eye but since I do not have one yet, it might look similar to the body style of the 800, but that's about it. **REMEMBER it has a battery compartment on the back side of the lens housing lower left**
Polaroid: Polaroid 95 camera  Polaroid: Polaroid 951948-1953 0029526  Early version,has sight spring and stamped face plate.That makes it one of the first 100,000 produced according to the land list. with padded felt lined original case, manuals even a letter from Polaroid, and a photograph of two older ladies taken with it from way back in the day by the original owner who owned a drugstore near the Bronx NY. One more thing...It is HEAVY and large, And in pristine almost mint condition.Polaroid must have liked to make Big cameras up till the SX-70 days.Maybe this is the reason I like the pre- SX-70 pack film versions more. Oh and if you see one in person..They are very beautiful to see. I recommend seeing one!
Polaroid: Polaroid 95A camera  Polaroid: Polaroid 95A1954-1957 S271487  Model 95 A . No extra parts or case. has the instruction sheet on back, and is in lovely condition.
Polaroid: Polaroid 95B (Speedliner) camera  Polaroid: Polaroid 95B (Speedliner)1957-1961 S690795  The 95 B Speedliner. Missing the hand strap. It was a pile of parts when I got it. I put it all together back to functioning. it also came with a case, but no paper work or accessories. this is the last of the 95 series and completes my 95 collection.
Polaroid: Polaroid J 33 camera  Polaroid: Polaroid J 331961-1963 F132399 With this, it completes the small roll film cameras from Polaroid. The J33 body is a modified model 80 type. So I have always considered this a type of model 80, just with a some what boring lens assembly. The lens assembly is the same as the J66, just in a smaller container. No extra bits came with it.
Polaroid: Polaroid J 66 camera  Polaroid: Polaroid J 661961-1963 J200689 The J66 is the last in the line of Polaroid roll film cameras. It is also the most numerous as it was widely popular at that time due to it's price, and being easy to use. It's the same size as it's ancestors, except for the lens assembly. You can see the origins of the pack film cameras in this model as the model 100 pack film cameras started in 1963 when the J66 was discontinued. It has a built in flash, and adaptable for 3000 speed film. Mine came with case and a few extra bits. ***Produced: 1961-1963 / Original Retail: $89.50***
Polaroid: Pronto camera  Polaroid: Pronto1976-1977 ANF608AA early model Pronto based on the original one Step BC body. The all black body looks neat like that.
Polaroid: ProPack camera  Polaroid: ProPack1993  
Polaroid: Reporter SE camera  Polaroid: Reporter SEc1977 VL8131A  Nice little camera for pack film! Light and not as big as the 100-400 series pack film cameras. Takes 2 "AA" batteries to power it. Cold clip stored on back. The only draw back is the view finder is a basic finder. Get your distance if your close to the subject first and dial it in.
Polaroid: Spectra camera  Polaroid: Spectra1998-c2000s M3Q JDMJSV G BB  Great instant shooter camera. The Spectra film is slightly larger exposure than film for the Sx-70's or 600's or pack film. One thing to note..Its design makes it stick out from the side of your head kind of funny, and can be a little bit difficult when going for the shutter button when not used to it. It also has a little alert sound that reminds me of a 1980's Toyota key in the switch alarm.You can turn that off if you don't like it.
Polaroid: Spectra 1200si camera  Polaroid: Spectra 1200si BAC JML4Q VANB Year made 2002. This polaroid uses the 1200 series film. It also has the bag and close up lens.
Polaroid: Spectra SE camera  Polaroid: Spectra SE1997 L7C J636Z VHBE Mine is the latter of the spectras.All rounded edges,and the big clunky rubbery strap on the side. I got it because I didn't have this one. In working condition.
Polaroid: Square Shooter 2 camera  Polaroid: Square Shooter 21972-1975 TM3101A Pack film user, battery compartment in pristine shape, had a bunch of unused flash cubes and instruction manual in the case with it.
Polaroid: SUN 600 LMS camera  Polaroid: SUN 600 LMS1982-1986 F5L 16937 NE Well. What can I say about this?It's a POLAROID. 600 film user, built in flash.
Polaroid: SUN 600 LMS camera  Polaroid: SUN 600 LMS1982-1986 K5L 9604 VE My second Sun 600 LMS. It was donated to me.Fortunately it is the different decorated version than my other one.Tested and working perfectly.
Polaroid: SUN 640 camera  Polaroid: SUN 6401986-1992 J1K 02861 NB same as above.. Bask in the rays of the SUN.
Polaroid: SUN 660 camera  Polaroid: SUN 6601986-1992 M2M 8553 VB More fun in the SUN this time with auto focus!
Polaroid: SX-70 camera  Polaroid: SX-701972-1977 2B621739976  Black and Silver Original SX-70. I think possibly why it is 2 tone, it is using up parts from the the original SX-70 line, and the body from the new second generation SX-70 Alpha. in other words a go between. this is not the Sears store model, As it is not stamped on the front. this version is rare and very limited as a true 1st generation SX-70. The Sears store model are more numerous than this version. Mine came with ITT magic flash unit. It will be reskined with the original "pebble grain" black leatherette.****Serial Number : 2B621739976, Config : 6th Flash Inhibit Shutter, Model : Model 2, SE, Sears or Alpha 2, Birthday : Feb 26, 1976. ****
Polaroid: SX-70 camera  Polaroid: SX-701972-1977 L31064327  The original SX-70. After researching this would be 2nd type due to the finder having the split circle, and no numbers for distance on the taking lens. Came with basic manual 4 sets of unused flash bars and a soft comfy original case. No cracked leatherette skin, no scuff marks and rollers clean and shiny like it has never been used. ********** Serial Number : 0L310643277, Config : Hybrid Shutter, Model : Model 1 or Alpha 1, Birthday : Nov 26, 1973 *********
Polaroid: SX-70 Alpha 1 SE camera  Polaroid: SX-70 Alpha 1 SEc1977 No Serial #  It is an attention getter out in public. A fun camera. And it's the SE. No other bits with the camera.I releatherd it with the original black "pebble grain" that is used on the SE versions. It's a common thing with all SX-70's. What ever they used back then does not stand up to the test of time.Recommend finding a flash unit (like the ITT flash or Kalimar) instead of the flash bar unless you have a lot of $$. You can go through them quick!
Polaroid: SX-70 Model 3 camera  Polaroid: SX-70 Model 31975-1978 0H635777375  The model 3 isn't as popular as the other versions.But it still does what the other SX-70's do.. and that's take pictures. Mine came with neck strap and instruction manual.Also it came with the ITT magic flash unit. The leatherette isn't in great shape.. but that's to be expected. Happy to have it in my Polaroid collection!*********Serial Number : 0H635777375, Config : Hybrid Shutter, Model : Model 3, Birthday : Aug 25, 1976*******
Quantronics: Nishika 3D N 8000 camera  Quantronics: Nishika 3D N 80001980 267755 Surprised I am claiming this. No other bits just the camera. I got it because the price was right ( $1 shy of free), hadn't seen one in person, And I know the story behind it.No plans to use it.The equivalent of the DeLorean in the camera world. 1 word of CAUTION It takes 35 mm but getting it developed and turned into a 3d image is out of the question the only ones that could do it went out of business back in the 90's. But unless you plan to make a Gif image with the 4 pics then go for it. Other wise it's a odd shelf sitter.

Riken: Ricolet camera  Riken: Ricolet1954 36436  A little dirty but functions. Will give it a good clean.Took me bit to figure out how to open it, Once I figured out that the two round knobs on the bottom unlock it and the back slides off.

Also have Ilfford 6X13cm dry plates for all 12 holders new in sealed box. All leather attached, minor paint loss is the only thing. Shutters fire on all speeds no lag. Very early Heidoscop. You would also think it is a large camera.Surprisingly not so much.I would love to find the 120 rollfilm back you can use instead of the cartridge. I know Rolleioscop is already like that,But you can get it as a accessory for this one.
Rollei: Rolleicord I camera  Rollei: Rolleicord I1934-1936 1593772 shutter needs CLA. Normal wear and tear on body.Waist finder is missing the little rivet that keeps the finder from flopping wide open.

Ruberg & Renner: Ruberg Futuro (red) camera  Ruberg & Renner: Ruberg Futuro (red)c1933 no serial # Black version, not the red version. Photo showing is a photo I took of the one I have.

Sida: Sida Extra camera  Sida: Sida Extra1938 No Serial # The smallish little know bakelite 35mm Sida Extra. It used 35mm film on paper backing ..not like the 35mm rolls used today. It is palm sized, about like the Univex A series. This one was made in Germany (German maker marks) and came with the protective case.
Sida: Sida Standard camera  Sida: Sida Standard1938 No Serial # Sida Standard This model Sida has the removable view finder so you can use the wire frame (sports) finder. that what the two little bumps on top beside the finder is for. Mine is of course missing the wire frame finder, has some paint loss on the spots where the case rubs.It is all metal and sturdier than the American made Univex A , and a touch larger, with the markings D.R.W.Z (Deutsches Reichs Waren Zeichen , ‘Imperial German trademark’) on back door.
Simpro: Simpro-X camera  Simpro: Simpro-Xc1970 No Serial #  An odd little thing.About the size of a Univex A. just clip on a 126 cartridge , add a x-flash cube (magic flash cube) and go for it. All plastic. mine came with box and instructions. new never used.

Tiger Electronics: Pokemon Pikachu camera  Tiger Electronics: Pokemon Pikachu No Serial# Go ahead and laugh! Yes it is a real 35mm camera from around 1999. 1 double A battery supplies the flash. I got this as a tribute to my early days in my 20's when I collected the cards, and watched the show and movies. When you take a picture it also puts a border on the negative of 4 pokemon characters. Enjoy!
Toko: Windsor (35, I) camera  Toko: Windsor (35, I)1953 PAT.2610217 Tōkō Shashin Windsor 35. This one has originally no accessory shoe on camera. NKS shutter 1- 200 speed, T.K.C. Color Sygmar lens. it is a heavy camera compared to others.
Tougodo: Hobiflex III camera  Tougodo: Hobiflex IIIc1952 21540 True TLR, Took me 30 minutes of research to find out what this was. name plate is missing, and besides the lenses only other marking was "Made in Japan". It's in a bit of rough shape, missing the leatherette on the finder, Name plate missing, And shutter sticks a little. it is not as heavy as a Rolleiflex. All the weight is in the front on the Compur type Shutter and rather large adjustment for the lenses.But the big gears for the adjustment make it look cool,and at first glance, excitingly complicated. Not perfect.. But that's ok with me!
United States Cameras: USC Reflex II camera  United States Cameras: USC Reflex IIc1960s No Serial# In need of repair, mostly a good clean and putting the waist level finder cover back on. it is a simple no frills snap shot camera. No flash or other bits are with it. Once I fix it up ..picture will be posted.
Universal Camera: Buccaneer camera  Universal Camera: Buccaneer1945 #011758 on Lens This thing is large for a 135mm.And I might add a bit complicated. It is a true rangefinder, With A unique spring loaded lens extension.film winds off the roll to left.So to roll the film back after use ..you use the rewind knob on the bottom right.It is a mix of Bakelite,and metal.It's very unique..
Universal Camera: Duovex camera  Universal Camera: Duovex1934 No Serial # I believe mine is a little later type. It looks like 3 Univex A's stuck together.The center is actually the sight. It has a ground glass back that you look through, and contains the shutter lever for both cameras in the center part.The body is the 1st model A although modified.The 2 other A's are the original 1st version.Mine came complete with 2 empty spools and to unused rolls of #00 film.It is a unique little Stereo camera. It's not like my Heidoscop, nor like my much wanted Gaumont Stereo-Spido metallique.Still It took some ingenuity to make this happen.It is a fantastic addition to my collection. **UP DATE** This could possibly be a LOST version of the the Duo-vex. It is not listed in the "The Univex Story" book. I do not know about McKeown's price guide. The 2 versions know only have the simple frame finder. Need further research.!!!!!
Universal Camera: Meteor camera  Universal Camera: Meteor1949 121449 This meteor came crashing to my home needing a good clean and some TLC. the case is in bad shape but the camera is in good shape. Unsure about the meter as the view finder for it is very cloudy.
Universal Camera: Norton Univex camera  Universal Camera: Norton Univex1935 No Serial # (Norton Univex on back.) Small folding view finder. Almost identical to the Univex A With out the large wire finder on front. It's small. It will fit in the palm of your hand.
Universal Camera: Roamer I camera  Universal Camera: Roamer I1948  the roamer 1 complete with box and paper work, and sales receipt. it sold for 29.75 in 1948
Universal Camera: Roamer II camera  Universal Camera: Roamer II1948 203818  After the war, Universal was trying to regain what it had pre WWII. The roamer series is part of that. The Roamer II is the fancy version with a little leaver on the folding bed for shutter release and a faster lens. It can use either 120 or 620 film.
Universal Camera: Twinflex camera  Universal Camera: Twinflex1939 No Serial # Complete with box with inserts, Instructions,and sales pamphlet.Mint condition never used.Produced around 1940..so pre WWII.I have read it's the smallest true TLR.

Universal Camera: Uniflex I camera  Universal Camera: Uniflex I1948 217825 the original 1st version Uniflex I. It is a true TLR with full focusing. all intact and in need of a CLA. another note... it had a serial number!
Universal Camera: Univex A camera  Universal Camera: Univex A1933 No Serial # Univex Model A. very early model. This is from the first production run before they made a change to correct a issue. All later model A's have the stepped shutter / lens inlet in the body to prevent lens flare or glare onto the film during exposure. they made the changes very early due to complaints. This camera model started the company on it's way. Very rare, hard to find. I have been looking for this one model for several years. Now to get the other more common versions and share the differences.
Universal Camera: Univex A camera  Universal Camera: Univex A1933 No Serial # I call this Univex Model A - Type 2. This is the 2nd version of the early Model A. At first glance it is similar to the early model A. This one has the fix for the taking lens, being stepped to help deflect light. 2ndly the winding knob is made of metal instead of the more fragile plastic. I also noticed that there is a weight difference, and seems more fragile than the first.
Universal Camera: Univex A camera  Universal Camera: Univex A1933 No Serial # This is the most common and last of the model A's. Basically it functions as a standard A, But as you can see the decoration of the body is different and more Art Deco. The back now shows it has a patent, with the patent number. And the other design change is the winding knob is now on the lower left hand side.so now besides rolling up you roll down.
Universal Camera: Univex A8 camera  Universal Camera: Univex A8c1939 No Serial # Univex's first 8mm home movie camera. Small hand held cine camera, from 1938. Some times they were bought as a set with the Univex P-8 cine projector in a special case to store them both. **The winding handle and lens are almost always missing on these today.
Utility MFG: Falcon Miniature camera  Utility MFG: Falcon Miniature1938 No Serial# The one I have is a the other version. Art deco lettering on the front. It has the same Body and decoration as my Mar-Crest from above Only deference is the wording of manufacturer and name.
Vivitar: SpreePlus camera  Vivitar: SpreePlus No serial # 35mm point and shoot camera. This was given to me by a friend. Takes two AA batteries and go to town.Auto Flash, Motorized rewind.
Vivitar: Vivitar Pocket 835 AW camera  Vivitar: Vivitar Pocket 835 AWc1980s No serial # From 1979. A 110 film user. Uses 2 AA batteries, built in flash, motorized rewind, and 2 different settings for lens and viewer for distance. Mine came complete with display box,user manual,and warranty cards. Camera is sort of long for a "pocket" camera at about 5 1/2 inches long. Pretty neat and a welcome addition.
Voigtländer: Bessa camera  Voigtländer: Bessa1929-1949 No serial # 1935 -37 Bessa. this one has the shutter release mounted on the main door. 120 film , and all mechanics work. Missing the little carry handle. 1 neat thing- where the film goes , you get a nice message saying "Voightlander Film" making sure you use their film!
Vokar: Vokar A camera  Vokar: Vokar Ac1940 1925 1939-1940ish. The 1st model from Vokar out of Michigan. Originally designated "Model FC" but this was changed due to the Vokar B Textolite plastic construction and uses 120 film.
Vokar: Vokar I camera  Vokar: Vokar Ic1946  The Vokar 1 rangefinder. It is heavy and large for what it is. It is need of some work, but happy to have one.
White: Stereo-Realist 1041 camera  White: Stereo-Realist 10411947  003071 Low serial #, No other extra bits, Just the camera. Fortunately the hinged lens cover is intact and not broken. A bit dusty and dirty, But lens are fungus free and not scratched. After a good clean, will run some film through it and give it a good test.
Whittaker: Pixie camera  Whittaker: Pixie1950 No Serial # The smallest camera in my collection. Mine has the Camera, Film cassette, the display box, and the little suede bag. it looks like it has spent its life in the bag. Now I see why they are coveted by collectors. It is smaller than the Univex A, and uses 16mm film.
Wirgin: Wirgin Deluxe (Model 11) camera  Wirgin: Wirgin Deluxe (Model 11)1948 27310 Not sure if this is a Model 11. I know it is by research a Wirgin Deluxe early version, and has the ever ready case that is stamped "Voight" which is the correct case for the ones sold in Germany. These were made by Vokar company (See above on list- the Vokar) Not much else is learned except that it is some what rare and coveted by collectors.
Yamato: Skymaster camera  Yamato: Skymasterc1957  The Skymaster is the same as the Yamato Pax M3 but the top body is different. It came with a meter as well.
Yashica: Yashica 44 camera  Yashica: Yashica 441958 38111089 Adorable little Yashica 44. My first Yashica in my collection. It is in working condition, does need new leatherette and a CLA. I love this little thing it is cute!
Zeiss Ikon: Bebe (342/3) camera  Zeiss Ikon: Bebe (342/3)1928-1938 R 52494 Camera has ground glass back and film holder. All leather intact. Shutter fires on all settings.Carl Zeiss Jenna No1268960 Tessar 1:4,5f= 10,5cm on lens. Bellows does have slight damage though. It's heavy for being as small as it is(2 lbs roughly). And next to the stamped serial number it also has stamped "For China" So I guess an export model. It's a neat compact camera.
Zenith Camera: Comet camera  Zenith Camera: Comet1947 No serial # One of those 'Unusual" cameras.Mine does not have the box,Wish it did, And it was a step above filthy. It's made of plastic, not bakelite like I had thought. Mine has a roll of exposed 127 film in it that possibly could be developed. I cleaned it for several hours and even though it has some surface pitting in the plastic, it looks good. one word of caution.. be careful about extending the lens to get the distance. the two little screws are the only things that hold the shutter assembly to the extension and would be very very easy to rip the shutter off. the only other thing is for this camera.. And I quote "The professional type camera designed for the average photographer" which is stated right on the box if I had it. Sorry I just can't see this Comet giving Rollei a run for it's money..But..Still It's neat! A great unique addition to my family.
Zenith Camera: Comet camera  Zenith Camera: Comet1947 No Serial # This is of course my Second Comet. This time I got one with the box and instructions, and camera has never been used! still a unique weird little plastic camera, (NOT BAKELITE) but no roll of film. I thought I would never find one with the box being how rare they supposedly are. Now to find the Comet Flash!
