Like many bloggers, I have other interests aside from my passion for vintage bicycles (shock!).  Photography has always been an avocation for me.  I was introduced, early on, to my father’s 1953 Leica IIIf camera, and since then, have nurtured my passion for film and digital photography.  687 more words

Vintage camera collection - Mamiya 135 EE 35mm rangefinder camera

This post is a review of a small 35mm rangefinder camera made by Mamiya in about 1977.
