Anti-p0rn?

To me, this Kodak Brownie Starmite, is anti-p0rn. It was the first of some three Starmites that came out between 1960 and 1963, the last Starmite was produced in 1967. It took 127 film. And it even offered an adjustment for flash, EV14, and daylight EV13.

I love the look of those crazy old cameras. I think my favorite is the Ansco Cadet Flash. This one is pretty close. Too bad about 127 film.

I bought this yesterday. Found it for sale in a charity shop. Needs some TLC but a nice little project.

Interesting and fine collection there. The Pentaflex FX has a lot of similarity to the Ashiflex

Thanks! This is the oldest camera I own. I think its from 1918. Its missing paint but works. It will fit in a shirt pocket when folded. It takes a film that is almost medium format.

One of the largest SLR ever made next to the smallest SLR ever made.

That top pic reminded me of how beautiful they looked before they did the addon meters or flash shoes. I'm glad they provided a viewfinder for the LX without the hotshoe.

Thanks, enjoying it at the moment, its much smaller than it looks in almost every photo I see of it!
Congratulations on the MZ-S. The new Pentax FF is supposed to have similar dimensions (except thickness) and that would be a good thing.

Christmas in February

Today I received the object of a long harboured dream, in as near mint condition as it gets. body nr. starts with 0901.
The price was a total no-brainer for this set.
A few new batteries and I am good to go.

I am open to suggestions as to the most sexy manual lens for this set.

apologies in advance for posting a pic from my phone.

Note to self : perhaps change my nickname

That's a beauty!

Of course the 50mm f1.2 makes it a sexy beast but I feel that the uncluttered FA-2 viewfinder maximizes the LX's elegance.
