I have acquired a collection of vintage camera's and I dont have a clue as to what they are. I have attached some pictures of them! ANY help is much appreciated. Thank you!

Some sort or panoramic, hence the swing lens.

Al Vista, possibly a 5B. Missing the viewfinder.

Will is right - an Al Vista panoramic camera, almost certainly a 5B. I have one just like it, though I haven't used it in 2 or 3 years. There should be a small door on the back that contained the viewfinder and "fans" to adjust shutter speed.
