Collection by ffotografer.

I started collecting in July 2014 when I inherited a dozen cameras from an uncle. I'd always been interested in photography and at one point collected the Hasselblad cameras and system accessories. My initial aim was to collect an example of all the cameras I'd previously owned, but now it has gone on to around 200 examples of a wide range of types. There's no particular theme but I spend most weekends scouring local markets and "vide greniers" here in France looking for "finds". The @ designation describes where I sourced them .............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................Flag Counter

AGFA: Clack camera  AGFA: Clack1954-1965 Not found May 2015F4 in leather case @Cherves Chatelars The Clack camera was manufactured by Agfa 1954-65. This is the earlier model which has a metal body, later ones were made of plastic. It is a simple, boxlike camera, with a single-element 95mm meniscus lens with built-in close-up lens and yellow filter. It takes 6×9 cm pictures on 120 film.

AGFA: Iso Rapid I (Mod III) camera  AGFA: Iso Rapid I (Mod III)1968-1970  June 2017@ Yvrac Nice condition with Agfa "isi" flashgun.
AGFA: Iso Rapid Ic (Mod II) camera  AGFA: Iso Rapid Ic (Mod II)1968 Not found July 2015F4 1969 @Montembouef Agfa's Rapid film system, which used 35mm film, appeared in 1964 as a rival to Kodak's 126 film. The film was supplied in special metal cassettes. Whereas the Rapid system used a standard film pressure plate, 126 relied on the close tolerances of its cartridge to hold the film flat. Compared to standard 35mm film, the Rapid system was easier to load, since the film did not have to be threaded onto a take-up spool. The new full cassette is simply placed in one side of the film chamber with its leader protruding, and an empty cassette in the other side. Then the camera is closed and can be used after winding to the first exposure; the film feeds into the empty cassette. The film does not need to be rewound. At the end of the roll, the now-empty cassette is moved to the other side and used as the take-up cassette for the next roll. The Rapid film system was not entirely new, but a modification of Agfa's Karat film cartridge system of the mid-1930s. The Rapid system had the added capability of setting the camera's autoexposure mechanism (if any) to the proper film speed automatically, as did the 126 cartridge. A similar system to the Rapid cartridge was made in East Germany, called SL System.
AGFA: Isola I camera  AGFA: Isola I1957-1963 None May 2015F4 Had to bargain hard to get this. It took a lot of cleaning, but yet another nice AGFA. @Roumazieres.

The lens is Agfa Color Apotar 45mm f/2.8 in Prontor 500LK shutter.
Asahi: Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic (SP) camera  Asahi: Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic (SP)1964 3833030 Mar 2015F4 A great example - clean in every respect, with f1.4 lens. Also a very nice original Pentax bellows unit. @Cognac le Foret.
Asahi: Pentax Espio 120 camera  Asahi: Pentax Espio 1201994 9675496 Sep 2015F4 @Vitrac From 1990-2005, Pentax sorted its compact cameras into two main groups. The low end range had a PC prefix, but the high end series was branded as Espio (IQZoom in the US). These were mostly quite advanced compacts with built-in flash, autofocus, and zoom lenses.
  Asahi: Pentax Espio 801996 7830972 Oct 2017Neat 35-80 Zoom compact @ Chasseneuil

Asahi: Pentax ME Super camera  Asahi: Pentax ME Super1980-1986 3825865 Mar 2015F4 Good clean functional condition. Bright viewfinder and easy to use with aperture priority and LED speed indications. @Ebay Fr In 1977, Pentax had introduced two compact 35mm SLRs, the MX and the ME, after the Olympus OM-1 presented in 1972 had introduced a new trend for compactness in SLR cameras. The Pentax ME was the automatic model, but it had no manual mode. It was replaced in 1979 by the simpler MV and the more advanced ME Super, which was the smallest and lightest SLR (440g) available, with the following changes: manual mode added shutter speed range from 4s to 1/2000, sync at 1/125 additional shoe contact for dedicated Pentax flash units different finder magnification The marking "ASAHI" in the pentaprism housing was eliminated sometime between the ME and the ME Super
Asahi: Pentax MZ-M camera  Asahi: Pentax MZ-M1997-2005 7589664 Jul 2017Bulk purchase of 4 cameras from a friend . A rather plastic and lightweight relation to it's forbears. Undoubtedly good optics and with millenium software, I expect delivered very good images.
Asahi: Pentax PC-5000 AF camera  Asahi: Pentax PC-5000 AF 8585871 Jun 2015Neat little non-zoom AF, @St Mary.
Balda: Baldessa RF/LK camera  Balda: Baldessa RF/LK1964 404016 Aug 2015F4 Missing cover to the 15 volt flash battery compartment. Otherwise excellent. @Etagnac It has an unusual folding film advance key in the base - requiring a 180° turn, along with a spring-out rewind crank. The RF-LK has a rangefinder, a flash-holder and a coupled lightmeter.
Beier: Beirette VSN camera  Beier: Beirette VSNc1970  Oct 2015F4 Black version, a little scuffed but working @La Rochefoucauld.
Bencini: Comet S camera  Bencini: Comet Sc1950  Nov 2014I was attracted to this camera, as they looked good with all that polished aluminium. However once I got my hands on one in the flesh so to speak - very disappointed a cheap and nasty 126 camera with limited function ality.@Ebay UK
Berning Robot: Robot I camera  Berning Robot: Robot I1934-1938 15652 Nov 2017A modestly priced acquisition from a friend who was looking for a good home for his dad's cameras. Much appreciated delightful Swiss engineering the first ever clockwork driven film advance 35mm camera. Condition a bit tired some chrome missing and corrosion to the clock winding however optically and mechanically perfect, with both cassettes a highly usable camera which I will test drive!

With original box @ebay.fr
Bolex-Paillard: 7.5 Macrozoom camera  Bolex-Paillard: 7.5 Macrozoom E 16665 Apr 2016External cosmetics and optics OK. Unfortunately batteries left in have corroded internals. Serial number dates to 1969. @Roumazieres The 7.5 Macrozoom was a lower priced option to the 155/160 series cameras. It was constructed of lightweight aluminum and covered with imitation leather. Advertising suggested that the small size allowed it to "slip easily into a brief case, an overnight bag or a handbag." The camera featured a wide angle f/1.9 zoom lens of 7.5-21mm focal length with a focus range of 5" to infinity. A multi-purpose lens cover served as a sunshade and cap and could be lowered to produce curtain-fade effects; the camera did not operate with the lid closed.
Bolex-Paillard: C8S camera  Bolex-Paillard: C8Sc1954 773426 Feb 2016Mint condition with display stand. Serial number dates to 1959 . @ La Rochefoucauld The C-8S was introduced as a simplified, low cost pocket-size camera, featuring a single operating speed of 16fps. The fixed field optical viewfinder was only suitable for lenses of standard focal length. However, viewfinder prisms could be fitted over the front of the viewing window for lenses of different focal lengths. This model was originally sold at a price of $69.50 US in 1958, and included a Lytar 12.5mm f/2.5 fixed focus lens. The declic handle, seen left, was available for an additional $16, tax included.
Canon: Canon AE-1 camera  Canon: Canon AE-11976-1984 3037935 Mar 2015H6 A well worn body but excellent f1.8 50mm. One of these (black) was my main camera throughout the 80's. @Ebay Fr.

Canon: EOS 5 (EOS 5 QD / EOS A2 / EOS A2E) camera  Canon: EOS 5 (EOS 5 QD / EOS A2 / EOS A2E)1992 0202277 July 1995E6 My last everyday camera from the film era. I only went digital in 2003. Until recently, I used the 28-105 lens on my EOS digital. Lens now gifted to a relative. @Castle Cameras High Wycombe
Canon: EOS 50 (EOS 50E / EOS 55 / EOS ELAN II / EOS ELAN IIE) camera  Canon: EOS 50 (EOS 50E / EOS 55 / EOS ELAN II / EOS ELAN IIE)1995 1058365 Mar 2015F4 French flea market, with 80-200 zoom. Brilliant autofocus, very similar handling to my EOS 5. @Eymouthiers.
Canon: EOS 650 camera  Canon: EOS 6501987 1542540 Oct 2017This body came as a consequence of my interest in the lens (28-80 f2.8L Ultrasonic in mint condition) and was effectively free as I only paid 25 euros for the lot. An early example of the EOS philosophy lacks some of the bells and whistles like the EOS 5 I own. Mint @ Chasseneuil
Canon: Prima Super 105 u camera  Canon: Prima Super 105 u 7910558 May 2015F4 Neat little compact zoom. Mint boxed. Local bric-a-brac. @Cellefrouin
Canon: Prima Super 28V (Autoboy Luna) camera  Canon: Prima Super 28V (Autoboy Luna)1994 7308620 Oct 2014F4 Great condition works well. Another flea market impulse purchase, I just can't resist buying a working 35mm for less than a euro, not exactly classic though! With the Sure Shot (Prima in Europe, Autoboy in Japan) series of compact cameras, Canon became a major player in the world market for consumer cameras. From the original Sure Shot/AF35M/Autoboy of November 1979 to the Sure Shot 90u II Date of 2005, this range was a spectacular commercial success. @Roumazieres

Corfield: Corfield 66 camera  Corfield: Corfield 661961 AA007 83 July 2014F5 Part of a relatives collection left to me in July 2014. Cosmetically poor but works fine. Apparently only 300 made ( my rarest camera?), Came with 3 roll film and 2 single frame backs.The Corfield 66 had a focal plane shutter from 1/10 to 1/500. It accepted 120 film in rollfilm backs, and had an interchangeable lens with a special bayonet mount, but the only lens ever made for it was the standard Corfield Lumax 95mm f/3.5. I have the extension tubes, in 12mm, 24mm and 48mm lengths.

Coronet Camera: Joni-Box camera  Coronet Camera: Joni-Boxc1930s  Oct 2014F5 I never owned a box camera but this is a nice example of an English camera marketed in France. and badged "Photo a Gautier" @Ebay.fr Probably made by Tiranty - Tiranty was a French camera manufacturer based in Paris. Pre-WW2 they produced several camera models under the license of British firm Coronet. After WWII, Coronet linked with the Tiranty to avoid French import restrictions. Then several Coronet camera models were made in only France, some with Boyer lenses, and some with instruction imprints in French.
Coronet Camera: Toutes Distances camera  Coronet Camera: Toutes Distances  Jun 2015F2 Boxed mint example of this English designed but French built version of the "Every Distance", 1930's camera. Found at a market stall @Beziers, Southern France. Tiranty was a French camera manufacturer based in Paris. Pre-WW2 they produced several camera models under the license of British firm Coronet. After WWII, Coronet linked with the Tiranty to avoid French import restrictions. Then several Coronet camera models were made in only France, some with Boyer lenses, and some with instruction imprints in French.
Eho-Altissa: Altissa camera  Eho-Altissa: Altissa1954-1957  Nov 2014G6 - cute @Ebay.uk Eho-Altissa was a German camera maker based in Dresden. The company started in 1892 as Richard Knoll's "Photo Spezialhaus" in Leipzig. Since 1904 it started repairing and manufacturing photographic supply. In 1910 it moved to Dresden. In 1927 it was taken over in by Emil Hofert and later continued by Berthold Altmann. In the early 1930s the company was successfully making box cameras. The mechanician Karl Heinrich Altmann created the unique "Altissa" box camera line. The company's cameras were sold under brands of warehouses and photo suppliers: Adina (Kaufhof), AKO, Arto, Beier, Errtee (Romain Talbot, Berlin), Fotam, Fotka (Czech), Hamaphot, Hermax, Mantel, Mono, Nebo, Rhaco, RECORD, Rilo, Staufen, and Wara. In 1937 the company launched its only reflex camera Altiflex, and in 1939 its sophisticated 35mm viewfinder camera series Altix. The company's name was changed several times: EHO-Kamerafabrik GmbH (1931), Amca Werk Berthold Altmann (1940), Altissa Camera Werk (1941), VEB Altissa Camera Werk (1952). In 1950 it was still a private company, having 160 employees. But Berthold Altmann decided to move to Western Germany. In absence he was condemned by East-German justice, and as consequence his company was taken over by the Socialist East-German state. From 1959 it was part of VEB Kamera- und Kinowerke. The production of its cameras was ceased in 1961. A license production of the Altix VI cameras was launched in Sarajevo (Yugoslavia) with the original production equipment from the abandoned German factory.

Fex - Indo: Mosquito I camera  Fex - Indo: Mosquito I1955-1962 **** Feb 2015H6 My first "Bakelite" camera. Came with faux leather case, in working condition but I wouldn't fancy risking a film in it! Interesting that the film plane is parabolic rather than flat, must compensate for a "non planar" lens?
Fex - Indo: Rubi Fex (4x4) camera  Fex - Indo: Rubi Fex (4x4)c1956-1965 480234 May 2015F4 These are suposed to be hundreds of these at French flea markets, but after nearly a year of collecting, the first I've come across.

Fuji Optical: Fujica Compact Deluxe camera  Fuji Optical: Fujica Compact Deluxec1969 3011212 Oct 2014J5 1969 Until I had one, I thought the Canonets would be the best cameras of this type. However, the build quality, integral focusing thumb wheel, and general handling of the Fujica make it far superior to the equivalent Canon. @Ebay.fr
Fuji Optical: Fujica Half camera  Fuji Optical: Fujica Halfc1963 384710 Jun 2015F4 1963 Real quality feel to this camera. Again surprisingly Fujica beats the equivalent Canon. @ St Mary The camera could be used in fully automatic or manual exposure with the Selenium cell meter. The camera has a spring-motor. One complete winding for 18 consecutive pictures by a large knob on the bottom of the camera.

I see quite a few of these on Ukraine Ebay, and I thought it would be rare! With 210mm f4.5

Haking: Halina 35X camera  Haking: Halina 35Xc1959 X47460 Nov 2014F5 ebay uk. I had one of these as a lad, terrible quality. Can't imagine why I swapped my Paxette for this? I quickly upgraded to the vastly superior Zenith E later. @Ebay.uk
Haking: Halina Paulette camera  Haking: Halina Paulettec1965 ???? Jul 2017Bulk purchase of 4 cameras from a friend . I thought my Halina 35x was cheap. But this caps it! If it hadn't been part of a job lot, probably wouldn't have bothered. However it makes you appreciate Japanes and German quality.
Hasselblad: 500 C/M camera  Hasselblad: 500 C/M1970-1994 RV1259535 Dec 2014E3 Ebay Uk from Peter Walnes a high quality dealer.

Kodak Eastman: Advantix C450 camera  Kodak Eastman: Advantix C450 0510081 Sep 2015F3 @Roumazieres The Advanced Photo System (or APS) was introduced in 1996 as an alternative to or even as modern replacement for the 110 format. The "IX240" film cartridges are optimized for fully automatic film load, enclosing the 24mm wide film completely when not in use. The film is even put back into its cartridge and returned to the user after it has been developed.
Kodak Eastman: Advantix F300 camera  Kodak Eastman: Advantix F300c2001 in box Oct 2015B1 As new still boxed, even the box seals unbroken complete original kit with film, case and batteries @St Projet
Kodak Eastman: advantix F320 camera  Kodak Eastman: advantix F320 09034087 April 2015F5 Cheap and horrible APS. Doesn't have any of the endearing features of the T700 @La Rochefoucauld.
Kodak Eastman: Advantix T 700 camera  Kodak Eastman: Advantix T 700 0084726 April 2015F4 Local Bric-a-Brac. I was looking for an APS camera for the collection and this rather pretty and clever camera fits the bill. @Chabanais The Kodak Advantix T700 is an ultra-compact weatherproof camera with a 2x zoom lens for the APS film system. It was a typical Kodak design for the APS film system, with the flash built into the lenscover.

Kodak Eastman: Disc 4000 camera  Kodak Eastman: Disc 40001982-1984  April 2015F5 1982 Neat concept the disc cameras, Fairly thick film was cut into a disc of 15 8×10.5mm rectangular frames, arranged around the edge of a plastic hub, in a similar manner to Viewmaster disks. The disc was mounted in a light-proof cassette which could simply be dropped into the camera. The camera would take a photo, and then rotate the disk 24° for the next shot. The discs had a magnetic strip included, to store information about print settings - allowing duplicate reprints to be made later. The hub carried raised white areas with frame numbers, which were visible through a hole in the cassette. I imagine very poor quality images from the tiny 9x10mm film format @St Claud

Micro Precision: Microflex camera  Micro Precision: Microflex1958 280343 July 2014F3 Part of a relatives collection left to me in July 2014. Absolutely mint a fine camera. Just ran a film (Jan15) it produces superb images. Shutter speeds must be spot on too! Could just be the best camera in my collection given the rarity and quality? MPP is the only postwar British manufacturer of TLRs. In 1958, MPP brought out the lever-wound Microflex, inspired by the Rolleiflex. This had excellent optics (by Taylor & Hobson) and the camera was well made, but the crank invited hard use for which it was not designed. Shortly after its introduction, Britain dropped the high duty rates that had made Rollei equipment prohibitively expensive, and the Microflex had to be heavily discounted.

Minox: Minox 35 GT camera  Minox: Minox 35 GT1981 5033089 Feb 2015B3 Super little camera came with leather case, display case and original box, but no flash. @Angouleme via Ebay The Minox 35 GT, introduced in 1981, continued Minox's successful range of 35mm compact cameras, reputedly the smallest full-frame 35mm cameras ever made. The lens retracts into the camera body when closed, fully opening the cover activates the battery. Exposure is automatic, aperture priority. Different models in the Minox 35 range were identified by shutter release buttons in differing colours: the GT is easily identified by its yellow shutter release button. The GT improved features of its predecessors, the EL and the GL. It introduced an electronic self-timer, with a flashing LED above the camera's name. Another improvement on the previous models is the siting of the cable release socket to the side of the shutter release button, to prevent accidental triggering of the shutter.
Minox: Minox C camera  Minox: Minox C1969-1979 2316260 Nov 2014F4 I had a Minolta 16, which was the nearest I got to a "spy camera". Always wanted one of these and finally got a great example! @Ebay.fr Approximately 169,863 were produced in 1969-1976. It uses a reliable and accurate CdS meter, and is the first Minox to offer automatic exposure. This is accomplished through an electronically controlled shutter, as the lens uses a fixed aperture of f/3.5. It is the largest 9.5mm film format Minox ever offered, at 120mm long.

Voigtländer: Bessamatic camera  Voigtländer: Bessamatic1959-1962 22483 May 2015F4 This is the original 1959 version without the later protrusion in front of the pentaprism to view the lens settings. @Ebay.fr The Bessamatic was launched by Voigtländer in 1959, a few years after the 1953 Contaflex and the 1957 Retina Reflex, all from Germany. This is by far the biggest and heaviest of these three leaf-shuttered SLR cameras, at more than 2 lbs. or 0.935kg. The late arrival on the market had helped Voigtländer improve the ergonomic design taking advantage of previous designs. Nevertheless, it has all the shortcomings found on these cameras, the finder blackout after exposure and the limited range of interchangeable lenses.

Yashica: Yashica FR I camera  Yashica: Yashica FR I1978 152193 Mar 2015J8 Rough non working body. But i bought it for the ML 50mm f1.7 which is F4. @Ebay.fr The Yashica FR1 was an electronically-controlled 35mm film SLR camera made by Yashica and produced between 1977_81. Based on the earlier Contax RTS and Yashica FR, the FR1 combined some of the best attributes of those cameras. Equipped with the C/Y common bayonet mount, the FR1 could accept a variety of Yashica / Contax lenses and was targeted at serious amateur and professional photographers who did not need the added features of the more expensive Contax RTS. It had an electronically-controlled shutter with speeds from 1 sec. to 1/1000 (plus B), two exposure modes - manual and aperture priority - as well as DOF preview, self-timer, and full exposure information visible in the viewfinder.

Zeiss Ikon: Tenax I (570/27) camera  Zeiss Ikon: Tenax I (570/27)1939-1941 H87336 Nov 2014F5 I love this camera incredibly compact, pre-war design. Ran a test roll in Jan 15 passable quality results for age. @Ebay.fr The Tenax I was actually launched after the Tenax II. Like the Tenax II, it is a 24×24mm square-format camera using 35mm film, with a rapid-advance lever around the lens. But it is a much simpler camera, with a completely different body, no rangefinder, a simple folding viewfinder on the top plate, and a behind-the-lens Compur shutter to 1/300. Most of them are equipped with a Zeiss Novar 3.5cm f/3.5 lens. A smaller number have a Carl Zeiss Jena 3.5cm f/2.8 Tessar. Production began in 1939, and it was nearly halted in 1941. There was limited production during the rest of the war.
