I’ve been having a bit of a film revival lately, and have managed to acquire a few classic 35mm camera bodies and lenses, some of which I have lusted after since I got interested in photography in my teens.
My current collection consists of the following cameras and accessories:
Canon A1 & Winder A (1983 Vintage)
Canon EOS 600
Canon EOS 3
Canon Speedlite 300TL
Canon Speedlite 299T
Canon Speedlite 199A
Canon FD 50mm f/1.8 (x2)
Canon FD 35-70mm f/3.5
Canon FD 35-105mm f/3.5 constant
Ricoh XR-P & Motor 3
Ricoh XR-X 3PF
Ricoh Speedlite 300P
Rikenon 50mm f/1.7
Tamron AD2 28mm f/2.5
Tamron AD2 28-70mm ()
Tamron AD2 70-210mm ()
Tokina 70-210 f/3.5-4.5 (PK A/PK R)
I am amazed that some of these cameras are are almost 30 years old, but still work perfectly.
The T90 is an absolute beauty and has none of the problems normally associated with this camera (yet) so I am regularly putting film through it to keep the shutter operating nicely.
Likewise, the A1 has no sign of the shutter cough and is a lovely little program camera that has given me a lot of pleasure already.
The XR-P never seems to have been sold in the UK, Aand it is a real beauty, it tells you absolutely everything you need to know (and more) in the viewfinder. The only downside with this camera is that the +- exposure compensation symbol keeps flashing in the viewfinder even when exp comp is set to 0.
Can’t wait to get out and play with them some more.
