Kodak Vintage Find!

posted on 2nd of february, 2010

Feeling the itch to get out of the house, I went downtown to an antique and "stuff" store called Past and Present II. I like to go in here a few times a year because I find very unique props that I can use for my photography. I also keep an eye out for vintage camera equipment in good condition. Today I was fortunate!

Nestled among some kitchen items was a cute little brown box-shaped camera. I set my items down and went to get it. I examined it and found it to be in good cosmetic condition (some cleaning of dust required), and the shutter in working condition! The lens is clear and free of damage, and so is the viewfinder! All I need now is some 127 film and I'll be shooting modern photos with this beautiful 1950's classic!

Thanks for using my old camera! I love the old ones. Haven't used any for stock but maybe I should try it, too. I have a hard time not buying them when I find some but mine are all family pieces so I just stick with them. We could shoot together!!!
