If Only Digital Cameras Were As Beautiful As These Restored Vintage Rangefinders

If Only Digital Cameras Were As Beautiful As These Restored Vintage Rangefinders


Ilott Vintage

The tinkerers at Ilott have taken mid-century gems, such as Canon’s Canonet line, the Minolta Hi-Matic and the Argus C3, and remade them by tuning up the mechanics and finishing them with gorgeous wood veneers. The store’s Vimeo page features some of the amazing intricacies at work inside each camera.


Of course, craftsmanship comes at price (most of Ilott’s available cameras are priced around $US2000), but you are left with something functional and timeless — at least until 35mm film disappears forever. [Ilott Vintage via Design Milk]
