I got really lucky when I picked up this all-black Konica C35 Automatic for just $30. They normally go for three times that. It’s a competent camera but lacks the je ne sais quoi of other small 35mm rangefinder cameras, as I explain in my refreshed review here.

I’ve significantly revised the review of one of my all-time favorite cameras, the Yashica-D. I just love the feel of its controls and the excellent results its Yashikor lens delivers on any film I put through it. Read the review here.

The Minolta Maxxum 9xi is a giant beast of a camera, but it’s supremely competent and capable. Its shutter operates as fast as 1/12,000 sec! Check out my updated review here.

The last time I used my Pentax KM, I dropped it on a stone floor. It bent something in the lens mount and now the aperture control on any mounted lens turns stiffly. I’m still heartsick over it. One day, hopefully soon, I’ll send it off for repair. Meanwhile, you can read my updated review of this fine camera here.

This is one of those cameras I need to shoot a lot more often. It’s just great. The Nikon N90s (F90X in many markets) remains a great bargain, too. I bought mine for just $27 a few years back. I think they go for more than that now, but still under $100. This camera cost more than a grand when new! Here’s my refreshed review.

For a while I thought I’d focus my collection on 35mm rangefinder cameras. Instead, I fell in love with the 35mm SLR. But this Konica Auto S2 is a mighty nice rangefinder camera. I’ve updated my review here.
