AGFA: Iso Flash Rapid-C camera  AGFA: Iso Flash Rapid-C1966  12/27/20090A gift. Mine came with its original box, a roll of film, a battery, and a spent flashcube. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2010/01/18/agfa-isoflash-rapid-c/
AGFA: Optima camera  AGFA: Optima1959-1960  201142Mine tends to overexpose, and it's cumbersome to use. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2011/08/01/agfa-optima/

Argus: Argus A4 (a-four) camera  Argus: Argus A4 (a-four)1953-1956  200915I got some remarkably nice photos from mine -- better than I expected given how entry-level this camera is. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2010/06/07/argus-a-four/
Argus: Argus C3 camera  Argus: Argus C31939-1966  2008I always wanted a brick, and when I got it and shot a roll through it, I felt kind of ho-hum about it. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2008/07/09/argus-c3/ http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2008/10/10/argus-c3-photos/

Argus: Argus Instant Load 270 camera  Argus: Argus Instant Load 2701966-1967  201010Didn't know this was a 126 camera until it arrived in the mail. http://blog.jimgrey.net/2011/02/24/argus-instant-load-270/

Canon: Canonet 28 (1971) camera  Canon: Canonet 28 (1971)1971  10/2009Mine came with a Canolite D. I didn't bother with putting a battery in and just shot a roll inside with the flash. It was a competent performer, but nothing special. But no light leaks despite disintegrated seals. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2009/11/23/canonet-28-with-canolite-d/
Canon: Canonet G III QL17 camera  Canon: Canonet G III QL171972  10/18/200938The light seals are gooey and/or missing, but when I shot with it I only had a couple photos marred by light leaks. This camera is a real pleasure to use. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2009/11/30/canon-canonet-ql17-giii/

Kodak Eastman: Automatic 35F camera  Kodak Eastman: Automatic 35F1962-1966  2006The light meter appears to be dead, and the pressure plate has broken off.
Kodak Eastman: Brownie Hawkeye Flash Model camera  Kodak Eastman: Brownie Hawkeye Flash Model1950-1961  201015It seems like every collection needs to have one of these. Mine came with a roll of exposed film in it. I had it developed; it was of a family's trip to Niagara Falls in about 1969. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2011/06/27/kodak-brownie-hawkeye-flash-model/
Kodak Eastman: Brownie Reflex Synchro camera  Kodak Eastman: Brownie Reflex Synchro1941-1952  20060A gift. I have a flash attachment, too. I took it apart and cleaned it up a bit, but the viewfinder glass is pitted. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2007/07/04/brownie-reflex-synchro-model/
Kodak Eastman: Brownie Starmatic camera  Kodak Eastman: Brownie Starmatic1959-1961  201010What? A Brownie with a built-in light meter? This is a fun camera. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2011/01/24/kodak-brownie-starmatic/
Kodak Eastman: Duaflex II camera  Kodak Eastman: Duaflex II1950-1960  20095A pleasant shooter. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2010/05/27/kodak-duaflex-ii/

Kodak Eastman: Junior Six-16 Series ll camera  Kodak Eastman: Junior Six-16 Series ll1937-1940  2008Mine came with the box. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2008/08/27/kodak-junior-six-16-series-ii/
Kodak Eastman: Monitor Six-20 camera  Kodak Eastman: Monitor Six-201939-1948  http://blog.jimgrey.net/2012/08/27/kodak-monitor-six-20/ It yields delightful images, but mine is a pain to use. The auto-stop winder doesn't work well, and the shutter button is fussy.
Kodak Eastman: Pony 135 camera  Kodak Eastman: Pony 1351950-1954  201110Leaks light. Kind of interesting results, though.
Kodak Eastman: Pony 135 (Model C) camera  Kodak Eastman: Pony 135 (Model C)1955-1958  5/20130A gift! Mine is pristine. It handled easily and returned good results.
Kodak Eastman: Retina Ia (015) camera  Kodak Eastman: Retina Ia (015)1951-1954  2007I shot a roll Sunny 16 and enjoyed it. Only issue is that the viewfinder is so tiny it's hard to frame shots. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2008/07/27/kodak-retina-ia/
Kodak Eastman: Retina IIa (016) camera  Kodak Eastman: Retina IIa (016)1951-1954  http://blog.jimgrey.net/2012/07/16/kodak-retina-iia/
Kodak Eastman: Retina Reflex IV (051) camera  Kodak Eastman: Retina Reflex IV (051)1964-1966  201345Light meter is all but dead, and the aperture control is stiff. I had fun with this camera, though.
Kodak Eastman: Retina S1 (060) camera  Kodak Eastman: Retina S1 (060)1966-1969  11/201210Mine could be a basket case.
Kodak Eastman: Retinette IA (042) camera  Kodak Eastman: Retinette IA (042)1961-1963  2007I did not enjoy shooting with this camera. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2008/12/05/kodak-retinette-1a/

Kodak Eastman: Tourist (Anastar) camera  Kodak Eastman: Tourist (Anastar)1948-1951  200810.00I'm not sure why I bought this. Maybe because it cost next to nothing. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2009/01/05/kodak-tourist/

Minolta: Hi-matic 7 camera  Minolta: Hi-matic 71963  200635I shot a roll outside Sunny 16. I kept correcting for parallax not realizing the camera does it for you, and it buggered up my shots. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2008/12/29/minolta-hi-matic-7/
Minolta: Minolta 110 Zoom SLR camera  Minolta: Minolta 110 Zoom SLR1976  201210http://blog.jimgrey.net/2012/10/05/minolta-110-zoom-slr/

Minolta: Minolta X-700 camera  Minolta: Minolta X-7001981-1982  20090I have two of these, both gifts. The first one was a really nice camera until the winder froze. The second came to me with the winder already frozen. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2009/08/06/minolta-x-700/

Olympus: Trip 35 (chrome) camera  Olympus: Trip 35 (chrome)1967-1984  12/06/200930.00I know lots of people just adore this camera, but I wasn't jazzed with the results. Maybe I need to try it again. http://jimgrey.wordpress.com/2010/03/29/olympus-trip-35/
