Dacora Digna circa 1956
Medium format (6X6, 120film) point and shoot camera. Bought it at a stall for 5 euros.
Cheap camera, retractable lens, only 2 apertures (8 and 11), one shutter speed (plus bulb), focusing by distance ranges.
It still works but I think it was very unreliable in picture taking.

Praktica Nova, around 1965. Manual focus, manual exposure. In very good working condition with a crappy Carenar 35mm lens.
Bought it yesterday at an antique shop for 20 euros. I liked the 60s design...

Olympus Pen EE-S, 1962.
Bought it for 10 euros. I opened the top case and the front lens.It only needed a spring back in place for the winding mechanism and some oil in the aperture blades. Followed instructions from the Net.
The camera is automatic using a selenium meter to decide of the aperture setting. No need for batteries though. Now works as new.

Nice thread. A couple of old friends. I played with a roll of film in the Yashica last month just for old times sake.

Bought a new Zenit PhotoSniper at the flea market yesterday.

Wow, that support is awesome, PhotoSniper indeed! Why can't they make camera supports like they used to?

But yes probably too intimidating to be used in general public. :D

Some cameras I inherited after my grandfather died. Still trying to figure out if any of them will still work.

LOVE those F1s! Curious if there was a way to use that 55mm 1.2 with a adapter for use on the EF(s) format...

The newer F-1 has been in the shop once since new in 1983 and it still works GREAT and you can see that it has been well used. I think there is someone that posts here that made a mount for one of his FD lenses. That 55 1.2 asph. is one of the ones with the legendary gold coating on the elements. It is a fantastic lens.
