The vintage camera gods are smiling on me lately. These are two new acquisitions: a Lomo Lubitel-2 (manufactured in the USSR 1955-1977) and an Eastman-Kodak Duaflex II (circa 1950-54). Both are medium format cameras, 120 film in the Lomo and the now-extinct 620 film in the Kodak. So far I've only tested the Lomo, and I am happy to report that it is in brilliant working order. Here's a shot from it:

It's worth mentioning that this camera (found via Craigslist) even came with the original Lomo leather case, which is rare indeed. If you haven't heard of Lomos before, there is an entire photo communitydevoted to them.

I'm testing the Kodak this week, thanks to eBay and the camera nerds out there who are still selling 620 film.
