Some Serious Compacts...of old...

Hi and thanks to all who welcomed me to the site in the Introductions Forum.
Here are some SC's of old:



I love how the Fuji X100 resembles the old Olympus film cameras.
Welcome Gusmur!

That's really a nice collection of excellent compact film cameras. I had a 35 RC for several years and loved it - 'till I dropped it on a concrete sidewalk - then very difficult to advance film! Later, I kept a tiny XA (with A16 flash) in my briefcase. It gave me really sharp work-related pictures that always astounded engineering associates. But my old eyes can no longer read the tiny setting numbers. One of the early (non-zoom) Stylus cameras captured lots of home photos.

As much as I love and admire these old machines, I must say the new digital image-catchers are clearly the way to go! Do keep these little treasures (and some refridgerated film) to give your friends or children an interesting technical history lesson.

With best regards,
