Camera lovers unite


My newest purchase, delivered to my door at 7am this morning. She started it off, with her minty green body and flirtatious little lens. All I was going to do was take a quick Polaroid of her to send to a friend, but then, before I knew what was happening, the rest of the gang wanted to get in on the action. And I’m such a push-over, I just couldn’t say no…


My beloved SX-70. If I could only shoot with one camera for the rest of my days, this would be it.


My first proper camera: my Canon AE1 SLR. She took me through art school and beyond.


The Hasselblad, or as she is now known, the beast. Heavy, reliable, beautiful.


One of my first Polaroids. All cameras should have rainbows on them – fact.


My little Instamatic. I had one of these when i was a kid, and even though i’ve never put a roll of film through her, she still makes me smile.

    I love those minty green cameras like your Savoy. I eye them every time I see one, but have yet to take the plunge. I already have so many vintage cameras that I’m almost out of room to display them all!

    I had an Instamatic too. :)
    I’m pretty sure all the photos in our family albums with the rounded corners came from that camera.

    Ooh ohh! What are you going to do with the little Savoy? Will you use it? I just got one for my birthday from a friend. Love these.

    I love your collection!
    I have the onestep land polaroid and I love taking polaroids. I am currently having a little battle with myself though, to buy or not to buy more polaroid film. Is my little collection in the fridge going to last until they start making new film? What if they don’t make new film after all? Help! ;)

    Wow – my first real camera was the Canon Canonet 28 Rangefinder – a real beauty – I always said the camera just couldn’t take a bad picture…but, I definitely learned some skill with it!! I still miss it! It broke and the parts were unavailable because they stopped making it…

  19. Katherine

    oh what a handsome little brood you’ve got there…the Savoy even looks like the cutesy youngest sister.
