New vintage cameras

I’m excited …

By the wonders of eBay I have just acquired a Minolta Dynax 5 with 28-80mm, 75-300mm and 200mm Lens and a Ricoh KR-10 with what looks like a 50mm Standard Lens.  I also got a Pentax MZ-5 Semi Pro 35mm camera to add to my collection.

I feel some new Vintage Camera posts coming ….

I know that 35mm is considered dead but it’s leading to some incredible bargains at the moment. I honestly believe that these cameras are an investment and in 20 years time they will be worth quite a lot, especially the ‘classic’ cameras. I still have an OM-1 on my list, and a Canon AE1, and a Nikon F75 and a …….. !!

I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm to my current Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95 and recently acquired Sony NEX 6.

    35mm is far from dea in my world. I just acquired a couple of nice vintage cameras too. A minolta A5 and a Konica Auto S2. Both in really good shape. Kind of fun to be shooting cameras that are 50 years old or so. If you find a good reliable seller, let me know okay and I will share too.

    1. Yes I agree – I’m looking forward to trying a few rolls

    Excellent! In my opinion, there’s room for both. Looking forward to your vintage camera posts!

    1. Thanks, I’m looking forward to writing them !

  3. Apparently the UK is leading something of a 35mm revival so get those cameras bought while they’re still cheap!

    1. I think you’re right. I’ve been amazed at the prices of some cameras on eBay at the moment so I’m trying to pick up examples of all the models I used to yearn over
