Its not that old, i bought it new in 80 i think :blink:
Also had a M3 double stroke with an f2.0 50mm collapsible Summicron and i had to let it go to help pay for a work camera at the time.
I should have never sold it :crying:
PS. dont call me mister, that was my dad .......... jeff will do for me :thumbup1:
All my 'old' cameras have been sold or gifted away.:crying:
I had a Brownie Hawkeye that I gave to a female friend heading off to photography school. I even had unexposed film for it older than me ("Please develop by xxx xxx 1967...") I have not seen her, or it, since.
My CANON F-1's (I think I had five or six over the years) are all gone. I still have the original dealer booklet from when I was looking at my first one...
I have a Polaroid Land Camera somewhere. I have to hot-rod the battery compartment, as it uses some strange battery not found on this planet any longer (except for land-fills). That uses the same film as the microscope in work, so film is easy to get (but not cheap). THAT camera takes BREATHTAKING landscape photos. I only use B&W film in it, in homage to Ansel Adams who dragged a large format all over the world to remind us not to destroy what we have...
Anyway, now the oldest camera I have is an EOS-1v... Not terribly romantic I'm afraid.
I do have plenty of knives (my brother-in-law is a collector) and guns of all shapes, sizes and vintage. I just don't have that many watches!:lol:
