Vintage Cameras

Vintage cameras are always a pleasure to view. On the norm, most collections are probably not that valuable. But, for the camera enthusiast, each collected piece is a true treasure.

One caveat for the collector to remember is to remove the batteries from the cameras if you buy them from a venue which would overlook removal, before selling. The batteries are really neat to look at too, but they are chock full of acid that produces an attractive, yet corrosive substance that can nicely fill that small compartment.

If you want to possess a collection of financial worth, it is recommended that you do your homework first. Those Kodak Brownie's are fabulous to look at, but cheap to secure. They are not worth a lot. While doing your homework, you should also familiarize yourself with the concepts of what qualities are to be found in a mint vintage camera and how to operate some of those models, if you intend to shoot with them. This is a somewhat illogical idea, as you would have to have them scanned to get them on your computer to share with others, but if you have the money and the time, enjoy.

And finally, be cautious of the chosen brand names. The good ones include Kodak, Argus, Yashica, Leica, Nikon, Canon and Minolta. After all, how much value does a no name brand have?
