    The only camera I might consider only for its looks is the Kodak Bantam Special, but that's just because the 828 film isn't made any more. Otherwise I'd buy one and use it. Close but no cigar, for the good looks category is the Pre-war Rolleiflex Baby Sport, which uses the still made 127 film, but at 500 euros - not until I win the lottery.

    I find that one aesthetically pleasing in it's own way! Then again, I like Edsels...

    Although I don't own one, to me the Contax IIa is the most beautiful camera I've ever seen.

    I think Kodak did a great job with the Signet 35:



    Not so impressed with its predecessor:



    I like the Rollei 35. A huge amount of functionality in a small package:



    I'm also a fan of the Rolleimatic:



    I love the postwar Zeiss Ikon Box Tengor:



    And also the Zeiss Ikon Ikonette:

    One of the SLRs that I've always found attractive is the Minolta XD11.

    Not 100% pure since it takes great pictures still but I'm biased towards the 1937-50 Super Ikonta A 531.
