Welcome to my site. My name is Mike Eckman and I’ve been running this site for a few years without any predefined direction for what kind of content would be here. In late 2014, I had a “re-discovery” of film cameras which took off into directions I never could have imagined. I grew a collection of film cameras made in nearly every decade of the 20th century and started reviewing them. Although this site seemed to turn into a vintage photography blog, I am retaining the original intent of this site to be a personal blog. I plan on continuing to make a variety of vintage camera reviews and other photography related articles, but the site will still be sprinkled with posts covering a variety of other topics.
This entire site is maintained entirely by me and hosted on a custom built Windows 2008 server in the basement of my home in Dyer, IN. Every review and article was written by me using mostly cameras from my personal collection. A small number of reviews were written about cameras that were loaned to me by other collectors. I often source my factual information from other sites on the Internet and I do my best to provide credit wherever I can. This site generates no ad revenue and what few costs are associated with running it are paid out of my own pocket.
