Chuck away your digital camera for something truly old-school

Cameras, eBay goodies from Bayraider

Digital compacts are so last year, haven’t you heard? The in-thing now is 71-inch wooden cameras from the early 20th century. Where would you find such a thing? On eBay of course. Bayraider’s found this marvellous mahogany model, which was made in England and has been kept in really good nick. I’m not sure how you’d get the pictures into iPhoto, mind.

Bayraider’s also been on a celeb tip today, finding a surprisingly good oil painting of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, a Japanese Saki box used by Richie Sambora and Heather Locklear, and a studio master tape from the mid-90s featuring both Snoop Dogg AND Tupac. On different songs, sadly.
