    I LOVE vintage cameras, collect them whenever I can. If it's 20+ years old I'm liable to buy it [​IMG]

    Right now I have several Polaroid Lands (second favorite), a massive Quad Polaroid, Kodak Brownies and Hawkeyes, and a couple others. I have a working Keystone film camera I'm thinking about turning into an art project. The paint is flaking off and it's not in super condition.

    My FAVORITE camera though is the Imperial Satellite 127, I have a red one in the box with the instruction booklet. It's just adorable, and admittedly surpasses the Lands in 'favorite vintage camera' at the moment.

    I'm selling quite a bit of my collection at the moment to help my 'buy a more professional digital camera to further fuel my photography hobby' fund. I have my eye on a Olympus Camedia E-100RS for action shoots and a Panasonic camera for still and macro stuff.

    I just found a pair of Polaroid Lands, a 95A Speedliner and a J33 for a whopper price on Craigslist. I'm going to go sob quietly in a way to get them as of yet. Augh!
