Kikay (vintage) cameras!

Wow. Bellows. Nice. I don’t think these are easily usable now though, since it uses rollfilm; I doubt it uses the 120 type used in Holga’s, since Kodak had all these odd film types/sizes.

How about the ultimate dude camera? Big and bulky? If we’re still going for vintage, I believe classic rangefinders is still the way to go, and its versatile enough to go both ways.
