As in our entry about typewriters, cameras are a good collectible that won’t break the bank. Most people aren’t looking for working cameras per se, they’re more interested in a vintage look. Typically ranging from $15 to $50 for nice-looking cameras such as the Brownie or Tourist/Tourist II folding camera from Eastman Kodak, this is a field that’s great for entry level collectors. Classic Polaroid cameras are fun to own, too!
Associated with vintage cameras are camera accessories. For instance, we have a vintage slide holder with carrying case in our shop at the moment. Slide holders and projectors along with flashes and lenses and numerous other accessories might make the perfect gift for the photographer in your life!
