Did you start to collect your lovely vintage / antique cameras?

There are many ways to acquire old and classic camera, most of the people nowadays are buying their collections on web (e.g. eBay…).

However, for me the best way is to touch it, try it, and test it – before you buy it! In Europe, there are many different camera markets (fotomarkt) in different scale. On coming 11-Mar-2012, there will be a big scale camera market in Bern, Switzerland.
