On My Radar...Vintage Cameras

Hello Everyone,
One of my 20 before 20 goals is to start a new collection, and I think I found what that new collection might be... vintage cameras.

I'm going to be honest I know nothing about cameras, I have always liked polaroid cameras and have always like taking pictures in general. In the past year I've gotten more into photography and more into cameras, meaning that I own more then one camera. My main camera that I use is the Nikon Coolpix L22 and the camera that I use for fun is the Fujiflim Instant Camera instax 210.

But my love for vintage cameras is growing like no other, a lot of my favorites on Etsy are now cameras. Last Sunday my Special Sunday Etsy Picks were all cameras ( so I think I've become a little obsessed).

I went through my favorites on Etsy and picked out my three favorite cameras. I love all three of these because of their color, style and charm ( but especially the color).

I've heard once you have three of something that it's a collection (lol), so I need to get my but moving and start buying. Do any of you collect vintage cameras?

Enjoy,

    Hubby has a few vintage cams in the garage, but they're all black.

  3. I love the mint and green together, they would look great on a shelf! I used to shoot on film and have some (not very pretty) ones, but think my husband would have a fit if I started buying non working cameras haha You never know though, those look in really good condition and it'd be fun to experiment with them and see if they work!

    1. Thats so cool, I would love to get into photography more. It would also be neat if those cameras actually worked because I bet the pictures would be so awesome.
