Steevithak's Cameras

I collect and use vintage cameras. For more on how I do this and how you can do it too, see our page on buying, repairing, and using vintage cameras. This page is a list of my personal camera collection and the status of each unit. As I get new cameras repaired and tested, I'll add links here to the photos taken of and by the cameras. I sell a lot of cameras once I get them working, so I may not still have a particular camera on this list; but feel free to ask, I'm usually happy to loan them to other members of the space. If you want to know more about me, see my profile.
