Medium format film cameras of various brands

Cameras: Agfa Isolette

I’ve been meaning to do this one for a long time. I’ve had this Agfa Isolette for ages and ages: so long in fact I can’t even remember whether I’ve ever shot film through it before. I bought it in younger days because it was cool looking.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have come to understand over the years that these are fairly well regarded cameras and can fetch reasonable prices (depending on condition,lens etc).  Continue reading “Cameras: Agfa Isolette”

Cameras: Kodak Jiffy-Six 16

I got this camera last year after finding it in an antique shop.  I realize this isn’t a rare piece but (maybe because it was more a US product) I had not seen one before and fell in love with it’s design.
The price was high (too high I think having seen a few more for sale since) and I wasn’t going to buy it, but my fiancé decided to buy it for me as a present for which I am very grateful.
It s in great condition and came with the original leather case; even the little Kodak film advertising inside is untouched.

Cameras: Mamiya C330

A Mamiya TLR from the ‘C’ series has been on my list of desires for a long time and I never really thought I would own one.  These were the professional cameras used by wedding photographers all over the place throughout the 70s and 80s and have always been at a price point well beyond what I could justify.  They’re not especially attractive cameras (though all TLRs have a classic look in my opinion) but they are solid work horses and can take a lot of use (or abuse).

Cameras: Yashica-44

This was the last camera I bought a little while ago and I am not buying any more until I have thinned down the ones I have no intention of using and begin focusing on a core set of cameras (unless my dream camera appears at a shockingly low price!).OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Anyway, this is the Yashica-44 Continue reading “Cameras: Yashica-44”

Cameras: Voigtlander Brillant

I have mentioned this camera before but wanted to add more detail (and add better pictures). The Brillant was first sold in around 1932; early models used a simple zone style focussing method (as opposed to actual distance) with the operator selecting portrait, landscape etc.

This is a later version from around 1937 as it is made from bakelite rather than metal Continue reading “Cameras: Voigtlander Brillant”

Cameras: Voigtlander Bessa RF

I got this recently and love it so it’s jumped to the top of my list for reviewing.

Cameras: Kodak Six20 Junior

Doing this one next as even though I have had it for a long time, I have decided to sell it.

This is a Kodak Six20 Junior model D to be specific and dates from about 1934.  I’m not sure exactly how long I have had this but probably close to 30 years.   Continue reading “Cameras: Kodak Six20 Junior”

Cameras: Herbert George Insta Flash

This is a great example of a pseudo twin lens reflex (TLR) camera from the early fifties. Continue reading “Cameras: Herbert George Insta Flash”

Cameras: Halina AI

This is one of my favourites and one of two (true) Twin Lens Reflex (TLR) cameras I have.  It’s not the best TLR in the world by any means but I like the simplicity of it and it works very well.   Continue reading “Cameras: Halina AI”
