New In: Jiffy Kodak Six-20 Series II

Last Sunday, my friend Pascal and I spent our day at a flea market. We dug a endless number of crates hoping to find an original copy of Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin's album Je t'aime... moi non plus, mercilessly fought over the record (my preciouuus!) when I finally found it and laughed at some weird crap people were selling. We also looked for vintage cameras and I ended up getting this Jiffy Kodak Six-20 Series II. It was manufactured between 1937 and 1948, therefore I was amazed by its great condition and by the fact that it came with a spare 620 spool and the original booklet. This camera uses 620 film which has been discontinued for over 30 years, but I found a way to hack 120 film so it fits in the camera. I'm curious about the kind of pictures I will get with this oldie!

Do you collect cameras? Which one is your fave?
