Targeted more at photographers than at 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. Listings provide a history of each style, discuss what each camera is best suited for, and provide 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.

    This is an excellent overview of working classic cameras. some classic cameras like the Kodak Bantam Special that do not readily have film available are only mentioned in passing. But it has very useful tips about quirks and problems of each model of the working classic cameras. One can decide which model to select based on these observations. I found that very useful.Nice overview of camera collecting.As a collector I find that when considering purchasing a classic camera, I return to this book for background on the camera under consideration. Finding it more useful than I originally thought. I upgraded my rating.

    I just went back to film for B&W and found this to be a great resource to get an overall viewpoint of what is out there.

    This book has very useful information for just as the title suggests. Even for more experienced collector/users, there is still useful and additional information and it is always great to read the experiences of likeminded people. Thoroughly enjoyed reading this on Kindle.

    In plain language it tells you what to look for and what to avoid. Big names are coveredalong with some more accessible equally interesting gems.

    Not as authoritative as other books on this subject, and I found too many personal assumptions that I had to disagree with. When I saw an opening page with a picture of a non-coupled rangefinder Argus model C identified as a "Argus C3", I was a bit disappointed. Also, the quality of the photos and the composition themselves is sorely lacking in a book by a fellow who obviously considers himself somewhat of an accomplished photographer. B&W photos often muddy, and poorly focused. That said, however, overall a fairly informative and entertaining read for the beginning camera collector, despite some errors.
