I am putting up this post to cover some of the "junk" cameras I have been finding at local fleamarket for a couple of dollars here and there. Some of the younger folks that use them today, go after the "effect" they generate such as light leaks, fuzzy photos, photos with complete lack of contrast or flares galore when shot against strong lighting. I have heard the kodak brownie no. 2 being called a Foggie, rightly so as its cardboard body develops leaks over time. I am of a different mindset; yes these cameras were mass produced consumer grade cameras, but they weren't produced to create those special effects the current "analogue" crowd is so smitten with. They were produced to provide the best image they could within the limited/cheap materials used to increase sales and profit margins. Some of these are rivet-nailed cameras with little remedy or hope in restoring them, however if one looks closely enough, a lot of them can be helped, either with some creativity or trial and error. I am attaching below some of the most recent "junkies" I have worked on and some details of this work.
