Seeking info.on old cameras : LUSENET : Repair and Use of Antique Cameras : One Thread

I am curious to find out anything about some old cameras I bought at garage sales. A Eugen Bauer 88G Automatic movie camera made in Stuttgart-Untertukheim? An Argus Argoflex 620 or PB20 film made in USA, a Mansfield Skylark 35mm? Made in Japan, and an Ansco box camera.

The Mansfield Skylark was made by Yamato Camera Industry in Japan about 1962. In my opinion it has all the virtues: very well made,very handy film loading,needs no battery,simple operation,good- looking,takes very nice pictures and only cost me $5 at a second- hand store. I have four cameras for work but am always glad to put them away and pick up the Skylark.
