About five years ago, I started getting into photography and shortly after that, my collection of vintage cameras began when my grandmother gave me an old Polaroid SX-70 land camera.

Right outside the frame is an old plastic Holga, the first camera you can see is a Kodak Brownie, another Kodak, a Yashica 35mm, and then a collection of Polaroids.

Nice! How many of them work? I bet at least the Yashica. Though I'm sure some of these use discontinued film types like 620 0r 127 (well, 127 is still available in some places, and there are solutions for 620...).

Dude, I think I have that same Yashica. Mine's the one where you can screw on a wide angle or telephoto lens. It's pretty fun.

@ploafmaster - The Holga, Yashica, Canon 35mm, and a Polaroid work and I love shooting with them. Another Polaroid needs a new flash but I can't seem to get those. Most of them I've been unable to try, though because film is hard to come by.

Jarrett says:
@Gavin - not as much as I'd like mostly due to the cost of film. The Holga gets great results. I should shoot with it more. The Polaroids came out to a dollar a photo but now that they've stopped making film, my film supply is getting low.
