    Not feeling so great so spending most of my days in bed and when in bed I have been on eBay looking at film cameras for sale. Today I have managed to get 32 pages into 35ml cameras. I look mainly for rangefinder models of the fifties and sixties. I am still on a buying ban but there is no harm in looking and it is surprising how many cameras I never knew about. Manufacturers that have bit the dust even before digital had become the norm. Now with everyone sporting a camera on their phone it’s hard to believe that ‘proper’ cameras are still here. Don’t shout about phone cameras not being proper I am just coining a phrase not being derogatory. But if the recent past is anything to go by we don’t have that many camera manufacturers to cull so maybe the phone manufacturers are the ones to disappear? . One thought that came to me today was rangefinders like Leicas have never gone away yet digital mirrorless cameras are ugly by comparison. Why can’t some of the mirrorless models become things of beauty? Now you can shout at me :rolleyes:

    It’s modern, mirrorless, and a thing of beauty
