How many of you collect vintage cameras? How many do you have? When did you start collecting? What's in your collection?

I don't collect them but I do have this one my uncle gave me. He bought it straight from the factory when he was stationed in Japan.

Here's my Fujica V2 rangefinder. I'm waiting on a component from Cyberdyne Systems.

I have the old ones that I used, but the best is the Nikon S2 Black Dial that a co-worker begged & begged me for weeks to buy from him decades ago for $35. I only bought it to shut him up & because it's a very quiet rangefinder & I thought I might have a use for it someday.
The last time I checked it's now offered at $1,499.00 used @ Jim's Cameras to collectors. I wish he'd had a few more! :D

My dad's got a 1918 Brownie. I'd be interested to see if it still works if I can get my hands on some 120 film. Nowhere in the UK seems to sell the stuff...

I don't collect cameras, but I have a Kodak Brownie from the 1950s that my older sister gave to me.

It was the camera she used from her early teen years until her late 20s. A lot of memories, I could never part with it.
