Hilary Blunt of Kings Cliffe kindly donated her late Uncle Bill's Braun Paxette camera to my online Camera Collection. She has put my small charity donation to very good use in Zambia where Hilary's daughter lives. They help pay for HIV/Aids retro-viral drugs and the education of  families close to them.

Hilary writes; "Uncle Bill lived in a village called Merley near Wimbourne with Auntie Daisy. He was a dairy farmer and a market gardener. After he sold his farm, he was able to travel the world and took literally thousands of photographs with his beloved Braun Paxette.  He eventually retired to Kings Cliffe, where he was born, and lived to the grand old age of 95. Bill was an incredible gentleman throughout his life and helped many people generously. He would have been thrilled that his Braun Paxette will be cherished in your camera collection"

1969-1973 Canon EX EE http://www.collectiblecameras.co.ukThis was my first SLR camera!  My father bought it for me from Keith Johnson in the 70's.  It was pre-owned and got me hooked on photography. I passed it to my younger brother and he used it for many years too.  We have 3 lenses 35mm, 95mm and 125mm.
