I've got several in the ArtPix Storeroom for sale, and this one below is a great example ...
This is a Coronet Twelve-20, that was made in Birmingham in 1950.
It actually looks much older, with its classic Brownie box camera shape, and Art Deco styling.
This is the 'Colour-Filter Model', which perhaps would have made it quite modern for the post-war era.
I love the little colour filter feature on the side of the camera!
It also has its original case, which is always a nice extra to have as well.
I'm certainly not a professional photographer, so I don't actually use these vintage cameras, I just appreciate their design and age, but I sell to people who intend to use them, which is fantastic.
They would be able to take photographs of a unique quality that no digital camera or Photoshop could recreate.
They are often bought by students, using them for projects, or people who have a passion for cameras, and I love the idea that they will have a continued life, taking great photos.
You'll have your chance to get your hands on this or some of the other vintage cameras at my next two vintage fairs ...
