vintage cameras definitely have a charming aesthetic about them that's still significant today, even by our modern industrial design standards. What's even more surprising is that people are going out to flea markets and Craigslist just to hunt for these older models and use them as decoration around the house. A pretty neat-o way of recycling if you ask us. Of course, you could use them as regular film cameras, but after going digital for so long, it's hard imagining going back to carrying around all those film rolls around. Blackbird and it's old-school sensibilities may just be the new "old" kind of camera you've been looking for. It's available in 3 colors, $135 each.
