    This is my oldest camera I own, from the serial number, my best estimate this camera was made in Germany in 1938. It still works and performs excellent.

    Very nice I as well have an old Bessa, its the one with the square eyepiece mounted on it rather than yours where the viewfinder is designed into the camera better. I do have a few little box cameras which could be older, I can't say I have shot any of those however. I have medium and large format cameras I tend to shoot when I shoot film.

    Those are wonderful old cameras aren't they? I run a roll through all my old cameras about every 2 or 3 years. There is a lab near me called ProPhoto that I use and they still develop film the old fashioned way.

    I would run rolls through more often on my film cameras if I didn't have to mail order. That's why when i do shoot film its mostly medium format so I can get so decent resolution scans with my mail order for the money.
