The book is the best I got hold of. I use it as a Exakta "bible" for my interest in the Exakta camera wich I am an amateur collector of. The book is written in very informativ way with good pictures, and cover all types with all you need to know to make a classification and to find out the caracteristic to for each production year. I will recomend the book as the best for anyone who are interested in vintage camera, and a must for people who would find out about the history of the small frame camera, and certanly a must for people who will start a collection.

Format: Hardcover
What an absurd book. This is, in short, nothing more than an extended magazine editorial about a Nikon shop in an iffy suburb of London. Rather like the same in Hello or one of the other celebrity mags the emphasis is on style over substance. Why a store merely a couple of decades old wants to appear in this anachronistic way is beyond me and, judging by the number of returns, (now available for resale) many other disgruntled readers too.

Why one star? The book looks good and is well produced. However the author is more suited to romantic fictional work than this (see her other Amazon entries). Though, hold on a minute - perhaps this is exactly why she was taken on to write this. She's successfully romanticised a camera shop. Well done!

An interesting book but basically an advert for said shop. Let's face it when concentrating on a single brand you have a head start, when that brand is Nikon you're almost home and dry!

If you are interested in or collect Exakta cameras this is the ultimate source. Also cover the cheaper EXA cameras. This is the 1987 hard back in English. There is a 2003 version that has a little bit more info and identifies more variations, but AFAIK it is a paperback and in French. This is the most up to date printed version in English. There is some online info but much of that is based on this book (and the 2003 update) anyway. Its also easier to carry a little book around camera fairs that even a laptop.

Not sure what the other reviews refer to, they seem to be of another book and not this one.

An eloquently written history of an amazing and unique `Nikon only' camera retailer! Gillian Greenwood has really captured the essence of Grays Of Westminster in this beautiful account of the birth of a dream through to the building of a business success.

To excel in the selling of a single brand takes shear hard work, determination and passion. To find such passion for a brand like Nikon is not difficult, but to hold your own in a brutally competitive market takes real effort and skill.
