Product Description

About the Author

Robert White has been fascinated by old cameras since about 1960, when he bought his first, a Sanderson, to improve the quality of the pictures he entered for local camera club competitions. Encouraged by the results he bought more and soon found he was collecting rather than using them. He joined and subsequently chaired the working part of the Royal Photographic Society's museum. He has lectured on old cameras to photographic societies around East Anglian, has staged local exhibitions of his collection and written a number of magazine articles.

The book goes into great detail, shows a timeline of cameras to help you better identify your camera. And a glossary and much more in the back.
