eBay watch: Vista Colour vintage bakelite 120 film camera


A real oddity on eBay right now, this Vista Colour vintage bakelite 120 film camera.

Not sure about the year, the seller is pitching it as 1930s, I'd think it was a little later. But it's certainly an old one. Despite that, it's incredibly complete – right down to the box, the original strap and some original unused film would you believe.

The seller can't confirm it works, although 'the shutter does seem to fire just fine', so you might be in luck. Anyway, right now it doesn't cost much to find out, with the price at just 99 cents (63p) plus the shipping out of Texas.
