    Collection vintage camera's

    This is a teaser. Coming monday I will pick up a collection of old camera's. It will contain an Agfa clack (my new pinhole camera), an olympus pen. 2 foldable camera's for I think 6x9 and 4x5. Don't know the brand though and more stuff. Also an old bakelyte protable flash with battery.

    I'll let you know more next week and post some pics. Can't wait to pick them up.

    I love finding old cameras. To me, there's something Christmassy about getting into a box of new to me photo-gear and the surprising ways some of these things work just makes it that much more fun.

    Good luck

    same here. On a regular basis I take pics with an 72 year old Eho Box camera and a agfa clack. Great results. So I love buying new old stuff to try out and see the results.

    Ok I lied a bit. It is not an Ideal 383 but 385. Here's apic:


    It says this on it: ica akt:ges. dresden. To bad it doesn't have a lens But I have an anstigmat lens 150 mm wich should fit I gues.
    Of the smaller camera I can't say if it is the same brand. I will get a pic later from that one. It had a lens but it was broken. The outside metal cover was broken in half and the shutterleaf don't go back quickly. So I would like to try and fix it but don't if it will work. Glass is not clear either. Well it will keep me busy for a while.

    I would love to see a photo of a flash made out of bakelite! That must be really cool!

    I've been offered a "box full" of "antique cameras", all "with bellows". (the quotes are to indicate how little I have been told about the contents of said box.) The cameras have been stored in a basement and the fellow would rather give them away than have them decay in the damp. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there might be a gem or two in the collection.

    Cheers,

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

    It's not fair!!!!

    Where is my box of free goodies?! :o

    The Ideal looks really good, shouldn't be difficult to source a lens on eBeeGeeby, if the 150 you have doesn't fit. It might work well with a pinhole, too
