This is excellent, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Very nice. I have one of those in my basement somewhere.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, my, Michael. I think it's the first time I've ever seen one. smile
What a find! I like your presentation Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Richard.

I'm sure it took very good images Ginnie but give me the digital age any day!
Ginnie Hart: I'm in total agreement, Chris!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Each and every shot had to count in those days.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Martin. Aren't you glad we now have digital?!
Good find and image.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Jacquelyn. I don't recall ever seeing one before.

Ginnie Hart: Yes, Philine. You nailed it! smile

today i feel old enuff that i think i can remember 'those days' haha... neat shot, good choice with the black and white
Ginnie Hart: Most of us are very glad the digital age came, Elaine, but I don't recall ever having seen this camera, apparently designed for Lomography. Hmmm. Thank you.

For only €30.....
In those days we could not afford to take 50 blurred pictures of the moon, like I did last night grin...... Great find and presentation.
Ginnie Hart: I know! Digital is where it's at, as far as I'm concerned. I have no interest in spending money on film ever again!!!

I LOVE that we shared the blood moon this morning...and will keep the image in my heart forever, since I couldn't capture it, even at 1200mm.
If I remember right my dad had a Velbon tripod. It was a lightweight one and pretty well useless with a heavy SLR camera on it
Ginnie Hart: The whole setup seemed to be YELLING for attention, Bill. smile
belle "antiquité"!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, JP. It called out to me "Take my picture!"

Un appareil que l'on utilisait il n'y a pas si longtemps.
Ginnie Hart: But it was brand new to me, Martine. I don't recall ever seeing one before. smile

A mus indeed and also one very very beautiful photographs
Ginnie Hart: I don't recall ever seeing such a camera, Marie, so I got my education doing the research on it. Merci.

I often think how my father, who was a professional photographer, would love the digital age, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: My deceased brother, too, Lisl, who taught photography at community college in Michigan! My son has only done film photography (over 10 years ago) and has said the digital age "scares" him. I need to talk to him about that when we see him soon in Atlanta. I'd love for him to try it. He'd be incredibly surprised, I think?!

To take pictures with old made easy !! We must get back to the laboratory as for development - Have a nice week Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: To be honest, Pat, I'm very glad for digital photography these days...so much cheaper!
I remember this camera. Nice to see again.
Ginnie Hart: What's strange to me, Mary, is that I don't recognize it at all! I don't know if that's because I wasn't observant back then or because we didn't see many of them in the USA...or at least where I lived growing up?
Great image, takes one back to the days of 12 shot roll films, everyone of which had to count, we've got it easy these days haven't we.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Brian. I won't ever go back to film again, trust me (though I am aware that others will/are!).

Oh, how perfect, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Pauline.
Well you know I adore these vintage cameras! Nice!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Robin, I know. But you can afford the film, if you don't mind my saying so! smile

Those were the days...

I was very selective with my photos way back then ;-)
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Cherry. I know there are some who are returning to film, but I, for one, will never be one of them!!!
That looks like serious stuff Ginnie, good photo.
Ginnie Hart: And apparently very cheap in its day, Chad? I'm afraid I had never heard of it, however....
