Tell me more: If you’re looking for a vintage camera but, like us, don’t believe 1980s is actually vintage, this is the one for you - it’s the oldest camera we’ve ever listed. Cameras back in the early 60s were wonderfully built works of art and this one is no exception. In it’s really good condition too and it’s virtually bombproof. It’s a fully mechanical camera with no electrical parts at all so no need to worry about batteries. And to top it all, this happens to be the camera that started the entire FILTR journey, but that’s another story...
