Selecting and Using Classic Cameras: A user's guide to evaluating the features, condition, and usability of classic cameras
Targeted more for photographers than camera collectors, this guide concentrates on cameras made between 1920 and 1965. Older cameras can help a photographer master every aspect of manual photography and can be a valuable tool in every studio. The pros, cons, and problems that are common to each model are discussed. This book provides a history of each style, discusses what each camera is best suited for, and provides tips on where particular models are most likely to be found. Guidelines for purchasing a classic camera are provided along with information on accessories, portability, convenience, and film availability.
