    Default Vintage Cameras and unique photos

    I am starting to collect older cameras, well at least ones you can still get film for. I have had my Argus C3 for some time and just got film for it. I just picked up a Brownie Starflash and had a few questions.

    Does anyone know of old cameras (other than polaroid) that take original photos that can only really be done with that camera? I want to get these old cameras, take shots and try to recreate actions that will emulate the style in photoshop. I also just want to have some fun with them.

    I also just picked up a Brownie Hawkeye for 12 bucks.. like 21 w/ shipping. These things are awesome. They shoot really unique pictures, very rounded exposure area.

    Here is a picture from one:

    So, I just wanted to bring this up one more time.

    Anyone else out there shoot with vintage cameras or know of really unique styles that some old cameras might have?
