Film Camera gets a Makeover

Remember that Minolta Hi-Matic F I posted the other week?

Well, it doesn’t really look like that anymore.

If you’ve never heard of the company Ilott I highly suggest you check out that guy’s work. He refurbishes old film cameras and gives them new life with a new wood veneer cover instead of the faux-leather that’s on most old film cameras. If you’ve ever worked with veneer you should not it’s really not that hard to work with, and this guy refurbishes $30 cameras, services them, and put’s a veneer on them and charges $2000 for his work, even though it is magnificent, I wouldn’t say it’s worth all that.

So I decided I’d give it a little trial run on that Minolta I have and I think my results are pretty darn good for my first try.

I’d love to hear everyone’s comments and I’d really like to do a few more of these or maybe some custom orders once I get the hang of it.

Thanks again,

John Kirby
