  7. Thanks for sharing. The color article was especially interesting.
  8. Yikes - that Ractaflex rotor looks about as ridiculous as it gets.
  9. Hey I have 3 of those cameras and have used 4 more, even though they were before my time! And one of them, the Konica I was my first camera (given to me by my Dad). Thanks for the post. Love looking through these old ads.
  10. Thanks Marc! What a list of 1953 cameras, full of classics and also a few that I had never heard of before.

    The Victorian travelogue is an intriguing article. Canon was coming in fast after the Korean war.
  11. My father had an Exacta VX.
    I wish I had it.
  12. Thanks, Marc, another great edition. Hard to believe that 65 years have passed. The Victorian Travelogue was charming, and the camera list full of old friends.
