Something old

I mentioned to my mother a while back that I wanted to start collecting old cameras and display them in my office.  Well, she has started the collection for me.  So far she has found 3 cameras and an old tripod in different thrift stores.  The first one is a Polaroid Land Camera Model 800 built from 1957 – 1962.  Click here to see a quick video showing how to operate this camera.

This is a very heavy camera.

  5. Timely post. I was at a shop this week and picked up a Brownie camera for $14 just because I remember it as a child. 🙂
