Nikon FM2 and Rolleiflex Planar 2.8E. Really loving those two.
Nikon & Leica (& Rolleiflex) shooter
An Agfa Super Solina (RF) and a Fujica ST605 (SLR).
Fuchs, you don't post too much
Canon EOS Elan II for 15 dollars. And a Minolta Maxxum 3xi for free.
A friend just gave me his old Maxxum bodies, though I don't have glass for 'em. I remember comparing them to my Rebel X when he got one of them, and had a little envy. But... only one of us was going out and taking photos regularly, so I guess I was pretty happy all around.
Not a camera, but my sister-in-law gifted me this bunch of NOS

Canon Snappy S. Cool 80s color. This one has a broken battery cover, so I need to find another and swap. Luckily, there are loads of black ones around.

An another one...
Nikon EM with its Series E 50mm F1.8, all 1st version.
It is my 7th EM.
Arrived pretty much in need of a cleaning and some exercise. It was covered in scars of many battles and dust was visible on the outside. It hadn't been worked for some years now. Had no batteries in it and I put new ones. No power was coming through. Took the batteries out and inspected the battery compartment. The cover had some green vestiges of previous batteries. So, it went to a bath of vinegar diluted in water. An hour later it was shiny clean. The same batteries went in and power was available.
The AI tab on the mount was lazy to return to its original position and it looked like it would need a new spring. But, a blast of air around the mount to clean it from dirt and some exercise on the AI tab side to side and it was working well again.
Everything else is working as it should. What fantastic little cameras they are!
Fed 2, 4, 5
Zenit 11, 12XP
Olympus OM-1 MD, OM-1N, OM-2N, OM-2SP, OM10
A bunch of Nikons
Yesterday, I got a Yashica Lynx 5000E delivered from eBay.
Today at a Rotary Club annual charity sale, I bought a Coronet 6-6 for £1.
