Collection by PartsUnknown.

I've chosen to focus my collecting primarily on SLR's from the five major Japanese producers from the '60's, '70's, and '80's. This does not mean that I will turn my nose up at a beautiful Ziess Ikon Rangefinder from the '50's, or a working Kodak bellows camera from the '40's. Especially if the price is right.

Asahi: Honeywell Heiland Pentax H3 camera  Asahi: Honeywell Heiland Pentax H31961 379255 2018Purchased as a project. Sticky shutter. In good condition overall, came with the rounded attached meter. Haven't tested it. Not holding my breath. Purchased with a 55mm f1.8 Auto Takumar m42 lens. Chrome.
Asahi: Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic (SP) II camera  Asahi: Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic (SP) II1971 5076154 2007Bought this at a charity sale. I called this bundle the "Basket-o'-Pentax."

Minolta: Minolta XE-7 camera  Minolta: Minolta XE-71975 1237077 2018I could not leave it in that dusty case. This is a reclamation project (it has issues with the film advance). This war scarred beauty will shoot again. Purchased with a Tamron 28mm f2.8. Just as scared as the body. Black.

Olympus: Olympus OM-1 n camera  Olympus: Olympus OM-1 n1979 1750283 2018My much loved Oly. There is a belief that the camera body is there only to hold the film, and mount the lens. To a certain extent this is true, until you come to the Olympus OM-1. Far more than a platform. It creates an environment that makes you want to do great work. Chrome.
