The XA models are well known for being a super small, light and easy to use camera which was designed as a camera to be with you all the time. We love the XA series and the XA1 is no exception it’s a great little camera which takes full frame 35mm photos and looks great.
The Pentax MV is a good little SLR for a beginner or intermediate photographer who wants to get to grips with film or just have a camera which will take crisp photos quickly without having to worry about settings as much.
The Yashica-Mat 124-G is a medium format (120) Twin Lens Relex or TLR camera which takes 6x6 square format negatives. First released in 1970 the Yashica-Mat was the first TLR camera from Yashica to use the crank advance on the winder. Twin Lens Reflex cameras are known for their subtlety in circles of professions and users alike, they were found to calm the sitter in portraits and make street scenes more natural as the people did not feel as if there was a camera there. The 124-G also features a built in light meter which is used by matching the needles on the top of the camera to the correct shutter speeds. Similar to the iconic Rolleiflex the Yashica-Mat is a great camera for crisp, clean images of everything from portraits to landscapes and will give you a large negative to work with.
It’s the perfect camera for the instant macro photographer and will produce some rarely seen photos on a Polaroid as you can get so close. The lenses are as long as their focusing distance so you know where to match up for sharpness.
The Kodak Retina I Type 141 is a 35mm viewfinder camera that was first produced in 1937 as part of the admired Retina I range. The Retina I range brought the 35mm film capsule to light, upon release it was named the Daylight Loading System and was the first time the world saw the capsule that we all know and love today. The Type 141 was the first to have the shutter release button on the top plate which was a first at the time.
The Minox 35 AL is a 35mm viewfinder camera that was first released in 1987 as a continuation in the Minox 35 series. These cameras are known to be the smallest full frame 35mm camera produced so they are really easy to carry and use. The white 35 AL will come in its box with the instructions and has a fixed focus lens. Our favourite thing about the 35 series apart from their size is the door on the front which covers the lens. This camera would be a really stylish little viewfinder that is super easy to carry around with you wherever you may find yourself.
The Minox 35 range are great little cameras to carry around with you wherever you may go and the 35 PE is no acceptation. Although it is a little bigger than those without the flash it is still very portable and more set for night times with the built in flash.
The Agfa Optima-Parat is a half frame 35mm viewfinder camera which was first released in 1963, this one comes with a case and the telephoto 55mm f2.8 extention lens. The Optima-Parat is a great little camera which is pretty easy to carry and looks absolutely amazing. The selenium light meter controls the fully automatic exposure system so you won’t need any batteries and all you’ll need to think about is the focus. The focus is set by using the diagrams on the lens to gain an idea of what distance it needs to be.
The Pen series are infamously easy to use and incredibly transportable and the EE.S one is no acceptation. The light meter is working perfectly as well as the red dial that pops up in the viewfinder to stop you taking a photo when its to dark.
The Pentax ME is a good little camera for a beginner or intermediate photographer who would like a SLR that's light, easy to carry and gives crisp, clear images without the fuss of a fully manual mode.
The Rolleicord VA is a great medium format camera that can produce greatly crisp negatives and is a great camera for a intermediate photographer who wants a 6x6 camera for portraits, street photography or landscapes.
Upon release the camera won EISA and TIPA awards in 1994. The camera will switch to macro mode if it reads that the subject is too close and you can switch between a standard 35mm frame and a panoramic one mid roll by flicking the switch on the back.
