OK, I know we have had threads about displaying our collection of cameras, but it usually ends up being an either/or thread (rangefinders vs. SLR's). How about posting any of your favorite cameras from your collection, right here in a single thread? Any film format camera is welcome. Show off your pieces on this single thread.

I'll start with a few of my favorites.

I shoot mostly digital with MF lenses but here are my two modified Polaroids.
Black Beauty is an original 110 Pathfinder roll film camera converted by me to use common packfilm.
Goldfinger is a 180 with a 110 lens board and is converted by me to use Instax Wide film.
Both cameras have the Wollensak 127 F4.5 Raptar lens

Thanks sciolist. I was driving myself crazy trying to figure out what I had done wrong.

I didn't feel like cleverly arranging my gear. But I probably should have moved the Canon straps out of the way. They're blocking the view to my Nikons.



The gaps are because I have another eight or ten cameras out of the case at the moment.

I will post some vintage Chinese cameras.

Here is a Chinese Shanghai 58-2 rangefinder camera. There are 5 or 6 versions made between 1958-1963. This is an earlier version.

An early version of Zhu Jiang S-201. It was gold plated. I am not sure who did the plating, factory or the previous owner?

A Chinese 120 SLR. Rare models are sought after by collectors now.

No problem ctrout.

Which version is the Pentax in your first pic? I know it's one of the early slr's, but I can't work out which one it is. Also, are you going to put it back together? A thread on your rebuild wouldn't go amiss.

That is a picture of my K that Eric sent to me when he repaired it and did the CLA. I wish I had the skills to rebuild a Pentax K.
