I shoot with a lot of cameras. I buy a lot of cameras for various reasons - because they might have a roll of exposed film inside of them, or because they look nifty and I just want to try them out. I have an ever-rotating inventory of cameras, but I have a smaller, core group of cameras that I've bonded with, that are so freaking awesome that I couldn't imagine parting with them. One of those cameras is the mint green Savoy I bought two years ago. From the first roll of film I ran through that camera, I *knew* that it was going to occupy a prime slot in my camera collection. Even though it takes 620 film, and that means respooling 120 film, I didn't care. The Savoy was freaking awesome, and I use that camera all the time.

The camera in this listing is not my prize mint green Savoy, but rather, its twin! Hooray! I've tracked down a working mint green Savoy for you guys!

This is a very simple point and shoot camera. There's nothing to adjust, just aim and push the button on top. The film advance turns smoothly. The viewfinder is bright, with a small amount of dust in it. The lens looks clear. The shutter is snappy. The handle is still bendy.

This Savoy does have some minor scuffs on the body. The front faceplate has a scratch in it above the little atomic symbol, and there is a scratch on the bottom of the camera. Besides that, the camera is clean and in great shape for either use or display.

The Savoy does take 620 film, which is the same width as the widely available 120. It's easy enough to respool 120 film onto a 620 spool (or you could contact someone like myself about doing that for you!). This camera comes with one spare 620 spool inside of it.

For examples of some of the photos I've taken with my Savoy, check out my set on Flickr here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/yarnzombie/sets/72157611809602847/ There are photos using new and vintage film, respooled 120 and 35mm.

Camera size (without flash) - 3..5" x 3.5" x 3.5"
Camera weight (without flash) - 7 5/8 oz.
