Canon Elan 7--My most modern camera

I had the earlier Elan model - I forget what it's called. Gave it to my daughter and told her to find her own manual, because it didn't come with one.

I left my Brownie Hawkeye - complete with original box and bulbs - in a move once. I regret it to this day.

I still have my Miranda Sensorex EE - GREAT camera, but I have to buy a battery for it - a near mint Fuji STX-2 (with the 135mm lens it's a FANTASTIC portrait camera).

I also have my Canon EOS Rebel G, my first Canon, a sweet little Minolta Himatic G, and *GASP!* I broke down and bought a Digital Rebel XT when my granson was born last June.

Recently, I bought a little Vivtar Vivicam 55 at Walmart. I thought it'd make an interesting pocket camera to play around with. Vivitar's website says it works with Mac OS X, but it's a damned lie!

I've been fondling and loving my old cameras all over again in the past two weeks, ordering fresh batteries, and so on. Boy, would I EVER love to find a Tower III! My first camera, in high school, was a Tower - model forgotten. My first Miranda and lenses were stolen on a college trip to a fiddlers' convention.

Thanks so much for helping rekindle the love of cameras and just taking neat pictures on your site!

Thanks for the reply. It is great to hear that the love of photography is not gone. I love the Brownies, Elan's, and the Himatic series of cameras. I am always amazed at the exceptional quality of these cameras. Thanks again.
