My son has a taste for the vintage -- as a quick perusal of his (now sadly somewhat un-tended) photoblog will confirm. :)




My father shot with the top Kodak Retina for years, and I now have it. I think it finally died and he bought a Nikkormat, which...though I believe was kind of a budget Nikon...still a beautiful camera.
What’s the website? I’d love to peruse.... ; )

And speaking of vintage, I always thought my Dad’s old straight 8 Bell and Howell projector a thing of beauty...with the fins for heat dissipation and the exposed shutter/ lens mechanism. Family movie night = fond memories....

I paid about $100 for this Leica 3F camera body, but repairs cost considerably more! Though the design was dated by the late 1950s, I think it's ergonomics compare favorably to prewar and early postwar 35 mm cameras and it remains a pretty good compact shooter.
