    So my youngest daughter, 11, comes home from friends after visiting a garage sale. She says some cameras for sale etc..and I'm like, ya, ya. So I go anyway. Pick up 12 cameras...all Kodak folders in various stages of disrepair...eye candy only for bookshelves..fun to give away. Paid $20 for lot of cameras, like new leather holders and a broken Retina Reflex where meter works, is mint but shutter stuck open. Some are vest pocket...some 127 and large. Those little prism finders are a hoot! Visitors love them. The guy selling them, turns out, has over 400 Kodak cameras in glass shelving units and like 1,000 kodak accessories. I live in Brighton, MI area and is pretty amazing to find someone out here with such an interest. Anyway, is only time good furtune has smiled on me like that. Cheers.

    Peter-- turning a clack into a pinhole camera still hurts a bit...LOL

    I love my Clack, rubber bands holding it shut and all.

    the beauty of the clackis that you can reverse the process just as easy. And if you have two.....

    I picked up my box of treats today... 16 cameras in all, mostly of the Brownie line. (one is an 1897 model, and a number easily turn of the 20th Century.) There are a couple of Art Deco Brownies (one is definitely a Target) which I cannot figure out how to open... There are a couple of Duraflex (a III and a IV with flash)

    Also in the box was a Jiffy Six-16 folder with very leaky bellows and a Six-16 Dakar 1 in really good shape. (this is my favourite of the bunch)

    Also, to represent the non-Kodak camp, there is a Tower Flash 120, an Argus Seventy-Five, and a really neat Sankyo Cine camera with a three-lens turret.

    I've given everything an initial cleaning, and most of the shutters seem to work. Now I'm dreaming of how to load some of these with appropriate film and try them out. Wish me luck.

    Cheers,
    Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    ah cool. Don't like the kodak camera's too much though. To much hassel with the film spools. I always cut off the outher edge of the plastic spool but can't be bothered to do that every time. But good luck and happy playing. :-)
