Project 365: my new vintage treasures

My dad recently passed down his old cameras to me, and I was eager to snap some shots to share. The above image features a Mansfield Holiday II 8mm Cine Turret Camera (with a built-in exposure meter) from the early 1960's.

Below you'll see a Kodak No. 2 Folding Autographic Brownie, a folding camera for type 116 autographic film. These 'brownies' were produced between 1915 and 1926 and sold for a whopping $2.50!




Looking down into the viewfinder:


You can see the sky, clouds, trees...


Someday these will sit on display in my studio. Thanks again, Dad! I love you.

So cool! My grandpa was going through his things and found an old camera he had bought during his time in the army when he was super young. I was so honored that he chose to give it to me!
