35mm.  CAMERAS
Click on pic for more details on each camera

I personally prefer the non-35mm cameras, but who can say  NO to someone who offers you a camera ?
My special love : the early ones!
Fisrt, the 35mm film was in use for movies but only in the early 1900s the quality of the
film made it a good option for still-negatives. The first cameras in the market to use
the 35mm film were introduced in the early 1910s, using a movie-film which was cut
and wound on spools in special cassetets to fit the cameras.
