My favorite folding cameras
Limited shelf space!

Just getting started with (or back into) film? Seen something on my website you’ve always wanted to add to your collection? On a limited budget? These are cameras and accessories I’ve reviewed or bought but no longer need. Limited shelf space forces me to keep my collection moving, and I’d love to see these find good new homes.

Everything listed works as the manufacturer intended unless otherwise noted. If you have a question or want to make an offer, drop me a line!

All prices are in U.S. Dollars (USD) and payment is via PayPal. Continental U.S. shipping is included; buyers elsewhere must pay actual shipping (contact me with an address for an estimate). Multiple orders will be combined where possible, and all packages will be shipped by USPS and insured for an amount in excess of the purchase price. Orders are usually shipped in 3-5 business days. All items are being sold AS-IS and all sales are therefore final.

Bonus: I have a small supply of vintage camera straps (color, length and condition vary) and will include one random strap with any camera purchase upon request! I’m all out of camera straps!

Note: Some of these prices may appear high compared to eBay/etc., which is due to the included shipping costs. Bundling will reap discounts!

AgfaSiletteThis is a Type 1 Silette (the first version, introduced in 1953) with a Pronto leaf shutter and three-element 45mm f/3.5 Apotar lens. It's in superb cosmetic shape and mostly works. The film transport and advance may need a little tinkering as it occasionally binds or misses a frame, but overall it is usable as is. Some test photos with this camera.Camera onlyCosmetically, excellent; mechanically, good (but a little persnickety). Film tested.$15
Agfa-AncsoPB20 VikingA 6x9 folding 620 camera. Shows a lot of wear and weathering. Some rust. Bellows brittle and full of holes. Covering threadbare and falling off. Film advance sticks badly. Lens fogged, probably with fungus. Shutter works reasonably well, though. Definitely has some usable parts and might even be a candidate for restoration. Viking f/7.7 Anastigmat lens. Uses 620 film. My overview.Camera only.Rough. For parts. Not film tested.$15
BaldaPontinaA pre-war German 6x9 camera from 1937-38 with a 10.5cm f/4.5 Schneider-Kreuznach lens and Prontor II shutter. Fully functional and in pretty good shape for its age. Review and example photos.Camera only.Good. Film tested.$40
FEDFED-5c (x2)NOTE: TWO BODIES, ONE LENS.

The FED-5c is a Soviet rangefinder based on earlier copies of Zeiss Contax cameras. I have two FED-5c bodies, and one Industar 61-L/D lens (the Leitz lens in the photos is not included). Additionally, each body has an ever-ready carrying case, and one has the original box and (Russian) instruction manual. One body is missing the self-timer lever, but I have covered the hole to eliminate the light leak. The other body may need the rangefinder adjusted. The lens has a little internal dust but no fungus or scratches. Cases and box are in very good condition. Great introduction to Soviet cameras! My review and test photos.
Camera body (x2), Industar lens.Good. Film tested.$75
Hanimex35mm f/2.8 m42 lensFor a 'generic' lens, this is surprisingly good. 35mm is a great focal length, and the m42 mount is great with a lot of cameras. Some wear consistent with normal use, no significant dust or marks that affect image quality. Would be a great companion for the Fujica ST-605n listed above (and will include it for half price!). I have a generic rear cap for it, but no front. Mentioned in my review of the Pentax Spotmatic, which includes some example photos.Lens, rear cap.Very good.$20

KodakBrownie HawkeyeA 620 film box camera in glorious Bakelite. Has a crack in the plain class cover over the lens (the lens is behind the shutter), but it doesn't seem to get in the way of the tiny aperture.

Original outfit box is also included, but is in fairly rough shape. My review and example photos.Camera, flashgun, and original box.Camera: fair. Flashgun: Very good. Box: Poor.SOLD!

KodakTourist IIA big 6x9 folding camera with a decent lens. Everything works. There are a couple tiny pinholes in the corners of the bellows, but as long as you keep it closed until you make a picture they don't seem to contribute much fogging at all. 1/50 sec. fixed shutter speed and four aperture settings (f/12.5, f/16, f/22 and f/32). Uses 620 film. Includes matching Kodalite B-C Flasholder complete with bracket and original box. My review and sample photos.Camera, Kodalite B-C Flasholder and original neck strap.Camera: Good. Flashgun: Excellent. Film tested.$25
