I rediscovered film photography in 2011. Since then I have been collecting and restoring old cameras to working condition, always preserving their original aspect and characteristics. My oldest lady is an English stand plate camera from 1890-1900 I use ocasionally but my daily companion is a Zeiss Super Ikonta 530A from 1937 with an uncoated Tessar lens that produces incredibly sharp images.
