    Here comes my little Minox 35EL! I have always wanted one of these, and now I have bought one off ebay. I hope it works as described!

    Wanting a pocket size camera to carry with me anywhere and everywhere, I bought a Minox 35EL around 1977 and used it regularly until 2003. I probably shot more images with it than any other camera during that time. It was a delight to use.

    Some who have owned various Minox 35 models found them to be unreliable, but mine never failed me.

    I was in a charity shot on Saturday. There was an old basket filled with dusty compact cameras. I had a look at all of them, mostly Vivitars, Keystone, no-name brands etc. At the bottom was a very old beaten-up fabric case with a stuck zip. I wasn't going to bother opening it up, but I though "I'll just take a look in case it's an Olympus Trip or something like that". I managed to free the zip, and it was.... an Olympus trip! Near-mint, and from the serial number from 1981, for £10. With the original lens cap (and original case, in a bad way). I replaced the foam on the door hinge and checked it out, fully functioning. What a fabulously designed little camera it is.

    I've been going crazy lately buying cameras.

    Yesterday I bought a Pentax SuperProgram with a Cosmicar 35-70 lens / Pentax AF280T flash / filters / bag / etc for $25. I still have my original SuperProgram which I bought new in 85, however, years of heavy use have taken their toll. The one I bought yesterday looks like it was hardly used.

    2 days ago I picked up a Canon Sure Shot Z135 for $4. This P&S looks to be a nice little camera.

    Saturday I bought a Minolta Freedom Tele for $2. This is the P&S that's identical to the Leica AF-C1.

    Then last Wednesday, I bought a near mint Minolta Electro Shot for $25 (with case.) It's quite similar to the HiMatic 7, but uses a Seiko electronic shutter. I'm waiting for a battery to arrive in the mail.

    Yea, I need therapy.

    I recently bought a Kodak Bantam. It really is a little jewel of craftsmanship. Shutter will fire at 1/200 (likely 1/100), but gets stuck at other speeds. I may try to take apart the shutter myself. This thing is really so small and pleasant in the hands.

    Received a Ciro-Flex (model B) TLR the other day, that I had found on eBay. I couldn't believe how many month's it took to locate one of these that was in excellent condition and reasonably priced. This one was in such fine condition . . . the shutter only worked on 100 & 200, the focus assembly was frozen nearly solid, and something inside the viewer was intermittently obstructing the view. But, I love these Ciro-flex cameras. They're so easy to repair. After about an hour of labor (simple stupid stuff) we now have a almost new TLR that cost only 15 buckaroos. Can't beat that with a stick.
