    Camera Collection Doubles In Size!!

    A few year ago I inherited my father's camera collection. At the time we decided that it would stay in the house with my mother and when she moved, it moved with her and I put up the display cabinets in her spare bedroom. Now that my sister's children are a bit older, my mother is converting the room back to a bedroom so they can stay.

    I have now moved the camera collection to my house. Actually, back to my house as when my mother moved I bought her old house. The cabinets are now back on the walls in the same place - most of the wall plugs were still in place (just covered over with filler!).

    The cameras in the collection which I want to use are: a couple of Nikon Fs (one chrome, one black), a Mamiya 645 1000S and four Mamiya TLRs - C3, C33, C330S and an original Mamiyaflex together with a variety of lenses.

    Also in the collection are a couple of Edixa Prismaflexes, a couple of Zenits, another Kodak Retina Reflex III (I already have two) and a few rangefinders such as Kievs and Feds.

    There is also a Rolleiflex 3.5 and a Yashica TLR.

    I am happy to see that you are keeping those cameras from the hoarders!
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
