Crazy Cameras

I saw a cool camera collection at the Eastman House where Charlie the Tuna was displayed. While hunting for a good photo to show you, I found one man’s amazing collection of plastic cameras. Moshe Ber-el…that’s one great collection buddy!

CHARLIE TUNA camera, USA by WhiteHouse
This camera is shaped like the STARKIST TUNA figure. It uses 126 cartridge film and a flash cube can be attached to Carlie’s head.

A 110 camera in a Mickey Mouse head. Flash cube on top of head and the lens is in the nose.

A great novelty, toy with a real camera! (Propably the best collectible novelty-camera). Takes 1 3/4″ x 1 3/4″ photos on direct positive paper, includes an in-camera processing (see the photo bellow).
Comes with disguises for the kids and has a special effect extra lens (The tomato soup…)

Back view: notice the view finder and at the bottom the black developing tank (plastic). A inner cutter is moved from side to side in order to cut the photo-paper thus the already photographed paper falls into the tank.

Can cameras: A promotion camera made in the actual size of the can

The film is advanced by turning the silver cap of the can

Box cameras: Promotion camera made in the actual size of a Cigarette pack

And the same design & size to resemble a fruit juice drink box

Assemble kit: built a camera housing for a single use camera (included). You’ll have 2 strings one attached to your kite and the second attached to your camera’s shutter release so you can take a photo from up in the sky. If to want to take another photo you’ll have to bring down your kite.

The Voltron figure closes (transforms) into a 35mm SLR camera, while it has a real 110 camera at the top.

1978 – Fred Finstone & Yoggi Bear, 126-film

Bugs Bunny Made by Helm, 126-film

POTENZA tire camera, JAPAN 1950s
This camera is shaped like a Bridgestone tire. Uses 110 cartridge film. Single speed shutter.

Old Trains II

I notice alot of bloggers with an interest in trains. I have some earlier posts that get hit 3 to 5 times a day, everyday. I thought I might share a few more shots, especially for a young man that lives in New York who shares a great love of trains (along with his Daddy). The Orange Empire Railway Museum is the West’s largest collection of railway locomotives, streetcars, passenger cars, freight cars and other train-related items dating back to the 1870s. On weekends, you can even ride a train on the sample railway, which looks very cool! (And for a fee they let you drive, which in my case, could be quite scary for the other passengers)!
