Four film cameras and one digital. I got the Mercury Satellite with film for seventy-five cents. There is a Cannon, a Pentax, an Ansco and a Zeiss. My old Pentax 35mm is the personal favorite because learned on it. I guess I really learned on a Brownie Hawkeye. I wish I had saved all of the old one, especially my dad’s big black box camera.

    what a heir-loom. Cannon and Pentax are from Japan, oh>>haha things made in Japan are good staff not like one made in China. China is taking jobs away from Japan as well. Oh ..what is that had to do with your cameras???
    They are made for someone like you, good enough to make the great photo-art.
    I’m so proud to know you are using them to create such a heartfelt art.
