I was having a stroll around eBay and other places looking at vintage cameras to experiment with and came across these interesting items:
This Mamiya 23 Press camera was used, as it says, for press photography and is apparently very easy to use but I think it’s now more famous because it was used by William Eggleston. It uses 120 film but I think you might be able to exchange the back to fit other rolls and I believe 1/500 is as fast as this camera shoots. I might be bidding on something like this somewhere …
This is a top-down VF camera. You adjust the focus and aperture with the levers under the lens (bottom) which then synchronises the VF lens above. The fastest shutter speed is 1/100 and takes 120 film. I might be bidding on one of these too.
I love the idea of this camera, you can’t focus or do anything except change the shutter speed but the way you do that depends on how you hold the camera! Check out this blurb from the manual:
