Adding to the Collection

I've added yet another camera to my Ever-growing collection. This little love was sitting all lonely at Value Village, and I couldn't help but bring her home.



You see, my only fully automatic camera is my family's old Nikon, and it has seen much better days (though not many, because my parents didn't seem to know how to use it in the slightest). It actually doesn't work at all anymore, so I've been looking to replace it with another fully manual SLR, and this little one fit the bill. Here's a few shots from the test roll I ran through it when I bought it. Please excuse the black lines at the top, that was actually the scanners fault and not the camera.


Shot with Kodak 400 film.

  2. What lovely photos (and a total score on that camera)! I haven't shot film in so long but always have fond memories of the photography class I took in high school. Learning how to shoot with my very old school manual was so much fun. Stopping by from Friends Around the World :)

    1. I took photography in high school too, and used to be able to develop B&W film. I completely forget how now though. Thanks so much for stopping by! Your blog is adorable :)

  4. Awesome find! I was lucky enough to have an Aunt that ran a little shop where she came across cameras all the time. I have dozens waiting to be put up!
    I can't wait to add more to my collection!

    1. Wow, that's awesome! I usually have to scour garage sales/thrift stores to find them, and even then sometimes they are too broken to repair. Thanks so much for stopping by!

    1. hey!

      aw, thanks! It took me forever haha. I don't want to get into photography because, as I've heard from the many photographers in my town (I used to model, so I know a lot of them!), there is no work in Ottawa besides Weddings. I don't really handle stress well so I doubt I'd be good at those, haha. I love it as a hobby though!

      Thanks for the kind words. You make me blush, you lovely lady.
