Vintage Camera #3 - Minolta Miniflex
The third vintage camera I was given was the Minolta Miniflex. This is a much newer camera than the other two, made in 1959, however I find it the most fascinating cameras of the three, because of the twin lens reflex system, much like a hasselblad. This camera is in pristine condition - probably because a), it looks like it didn't get that much use, and b), it's was sitting at the top of the wardrove since the 1970's! The Minolta Miniflex can take twelve exposures in 4×4cm square format…
weekly wrap-up: friends and vintage finds
This week absolutely FLEW by....and I can hardly believe that it's June already! Last Saturday, my mom took me to the most amazing vintage market that was going to be here for just one day! It was one of the coolest places I have ever experienced, and I felt so at home among so many lovers of antiques, old furniture, vintage treasures and more! The place was packed! And I was very thankful that I'm not claustrophobic at all! I picked up so many business cards of fellow diy-ers, crafters, and…

i love a pretty camera
It's true. Especially when the pretty camera is photographed by another pretty camera. This is Vanessa's Mamiya, which is soooo very bright and shiny, as seen by my Hasselblad. I "oooh" and "aaah" over this camera every time I see it. Much like I coo over puppies and flowers and (on occasion) babies. Oh, and. Vanessa creates some pretty amazing photos with this camera, so go take a look at them. (This one is perhaps my favorite.)
