My first SLR was a used Petri. It was stolen from my dorm room my freshman year of college.

One of my fave bikes was stolen from my dorm room.


A yashica, agfa, polaroid, and in the back my first digicam. Shot on Iphone 7 with taco grease filter.

Mine met an equally harsh fate.... thrown out by my own parents when they were cleaning house! That Racer was so compact in my hands.

Judging from most phone-shot photos you see, no, it's not a camera.

Or, as an analogy (in context):

My father's 35mm Kodak Retina which according to family lore, he carried with him during WW2 while serving in the ETO. I have not been able to confirm that, but the model is prewar so it does not discount it.

I do the same with a A7. I have Leica, Exacta, M42, Canon FD and Nikon mounts for it.

These are a 1930s Ihagee Parvola and 1946 Leica IIIc. My grandfather bought both new. He traded me the Leica when I was in high school for a Minolta that used 110 film, and gave me the Ihagee a couple of years later. Both were C&V backwhen he gave them to me. Leica was my everyday camera into the early 90s. I shot one roll through the Ihagee back when you could still get whatever odd size film it used.

Just one of the many point & shoot dinosaurs we've had over the years, and I found a roll of 800 speed Fuji film rummaging around. I really liked the Sony Cyber Shot camera on the right that was supposed to have a Carl Zeiss lens but it has one of those special rechargeable batteries that has now gone bad. Point & Shoot cameras, 8 mm, VHS, Beta, 8 track, cassette, CD, ....only vinyl records are coming back from the dead

The thing these cameras share with vintage hand made bicycles is that boundary land between craft and art. Sure things must be crafted to meticulous tolerances, but then you see in the form art blending into ease of function, It all comes from a certain age and you see ii in so many things, hand tools, cameras and one of my favorites, well made watches. Even industrial production from that time would still incorporate style in the design, thus the age of finned automobiles saw the same in simple blenders, refrigerators and other tools of domestic life, then there were the early tube televisions which often bordered on being something from a good B Sci-Fi movie.

Now we have convenience in function that borders on being too difficult to use and terribly fragile, e.g., how many patches does it take before it works? And that's leaving aside the ability to hack and disable/take over the thing. Yes, it is a wonder to see my grandchildren in France in real time, but when we forget the internet is just a tool, some of our humanity is forgotten, Whereas with these well made tools you feel the humanity of their creator and are drawn into there use.

I aspired to be a professional photographer from about 6th grade on. I shot medium format exclusively. In the summer of 1973 between my Junior and Senior years in high school my identify was bounded by photography, bicycles, the Gratefuul Dead and messing around with a Univac 1108 mainframe that I had access to through school. That summer I worked in a textile mill in upstate NY saving money for a proper racing bicycle (Zeus Pro, baby) and a barely used Hasselblad 1000F that was about as old as I was. Here's a 1974 selfie:



That camera was stolen in 1975 or 76, and I replaced it in 1978. By then I had changed course and was an art director in print and direct marketing. I still have the second Hasselblad and my Minolta Autocord TLR from BITD. Just to add to the fun my wife brought a 4x5 view camera, a Hasselblad 500c and a handful of Nikons to our union. We have a few others that really weren't working cameras for us: a Zeiss, an Argus and other less notable boxes. Neither of us shoot film any longer, and the truth is I use my iPhone almost exclusively.

^^^^^^ Funny thing, about a year ago I was getting out of my car (1960 Volvo PV 544) and another car pulls up to me. The driver said he was a professional photographer and asked if he could take pictures of my car. I told him to knock himself out. He pulls out a film camera and shoots about 3 rolls. I commented about film and not digital and he told me film was making a comeback. I don't see it.

That is interesting, I don't really see it either. I would think it would be a very 'niche' hobby at this point with those still doing it having their own processing equipment.

I shot stills in 120 through the early digital days. There was nothing digital short of 10's of thousands of dollars that could come close in res to a $80 beater 120 camera. These days you probably can get somewhat affordable digital rigs that do as good on res, but it hasn't been that way very long. 35 is a different story.

^^^^ That reminds me - I have an old OM10, that has, from what little research I did a while back, a problem common with them. You wind it, take a shot, and the mirror doesn't return all the way, and the next time you wind it, the shutter just springs back to its "shot" position. If you carefully fiddle with the mirror, you can get it to wind and do one more shot, but the syndrome starts all over again. Or something like that; been a while since I've handled it. I'm a Nikonoid, so I'll never have occasion to use it. For any Olympus geek out there, it's yours for the shipping. Silver body, pretty "stock" 50mm lens, maybe a 1.8 or something? I'm not familiar with Olympus gear. Just pay it forward, send someone a nice crankset or something.

Edit - IIRC, it also has the manual shutter speed override dial.

Cute Citroen. And what's the turqouise/aqua colored sedan? I vaguely recall having one as a kid, but I'm totally spacing on the make/model. Oh wait -- is it a Rolls?

As well as my parents owning a restaurant, Dad was also a film maker, and won a couple of prizes with his clockwork Bolex, later upgraded to an EL. I still have the cameras pictured below, but would love to rehome them. Being sat in a pelican box is not what they were made for. The Rollei used to go caving with Dad, then my brother, then me. All of us had pics published in various magazines with them. The F3hp was one of a pair, he sold the other one.
