I've been collecting vintage cameras for a few years now and my collection is pretty cool. I have only two rules for the cameras I scrounge in thrift stores and on ebay: 1) the camera must be fully functional, 2) the camera must cost less than $20. Operating within those parameters, you can do some pretty cool stuff.

These photos from a recent trip to Mexico were taken with my Tower box camera. This camera was marketed by Sears in the mid '50s.
