eBay watch: 1950s Bencini Comet III film camera

Comet1

Fans of old school film photography might want to check out this 1950s Bencini Comet III film camera, which is currently up for auction on eBay.

It's an Italian-made camera with no shortage of style. If there was a digital version of it remade (or one using an accessible format of film), I would be all over it. Sadly, we're talking strictly vintage, although as a plus, it does come with its own equally snappy case.

As I hinted there, film is an issue, as it takes 127 format, which isn't easy to find. But there are tips on how to get around this on the Lomography site if you are keen.

The price is certainly right at the moment, just £6.
