Six 20 E, Ful Vue II and Action Sampler (Camera Gear)
Posted by rachelcreative on November 6, 2008
I found some photos taken earlier in the year of camera’s I own. I haven’t yet finished films in these cameras to show you the results from.
Six 20 – Model E
This Six 20 Model E was given to me by my dad. It was given to him as a present from his parents when he was a young boy. It was many additional functions to the Model C I have including filters for different weather/light conditions and focus, a lock to guard against double exposures and contacts for a flash unit. it even has a fancy metal film winding knob instead of the plastic version on Model C.
This camera takes 620 film (hence it’s name) but you can respool 120 film onto old spools.
Ensign Ful Vue II
I love the design of the Ful Vue II from Ensign. It takes 120 film but the modern plastic spools are a bit too chunky so respooling film to the old metal spools is best. It has instant or timed modes and a focus ring.
My Film Camera Collection as of June 2008
My camera collection has grown since this photo was taken.
Sports 35 Action Sampler
This Sports 35 Action Sampler has 4 lenses to take 4 exposures on one frame. It takes 35mm film. The 4 shutters fire mechanically one after the other. If you photograph a moving subject the idea is to have 4 different moments captured. We’ll see once I’ve finished my first film!
The shutter mechanism sound like a loud wind up toy, or a very angry bee, so it’s not great for discreet snapshots!
This camera is similar to Lomography’s Action Sampler but I think it’s supplied by Accoutrements who supply the Split Cam. Here it’s called a Quad Cam but the box this one came in called it a Sports 35 Action Sampler. Confusing!
