Technical Notes

The Lordox 24x36 camera is a fully manual camera, with most adjustable settings located on the lens itself. To open the camera, turn the wriststrap supports clockwise 1/4 turn and slide the rear off.

This camera has an interesting remaining exposure counter, which is a wheel on the top next to the cold shoe that you must reset to zero when changing out film.

how much would this camera be worth?

Hello Christine. The value of this camera is subjective on condition, and demand... I would suspect, in good condition, you could get between $10 and $30 for the camera itself.

Hello Jan,That is up to you -- as we had told Christine, the camera is probably only worth $10-$30, and perhaps a little more with the accessories you have. If you have in interest in camera collecting or film photography, the camera does fairly well (especially when assisted with a light meter), and may be worth keeping.

Camera History Project

This website is the culmination of years of antiquing. My wife and I enjoyed travelling around the United States, stopping at various antique shops and finding different cameras. Since 2012, we have collected hundreds of cameras, and there are some that we have, but that have not made it online yet. When the real world slows down, we plan to resume our hobby! Feel free to check out our online collection, and using the comment system, let us know which you've had and which is your favorite!
