There are camera guides and there are collectors camera guides, all the past editions cannot be beaten. THIS 2005/2006 edition (the long awaited edition) has to be the world leader, expanded and enlarged, packed with photographs (B&W) and data, on the easy and not so easy cameras to find. If you like cameras you will love this edition, a must for every collector. This book is writen by enthusiasts for enthusiasts and it shows on every page, once you have seen this book, no other will do, I would not be without mine.
Happy reading and collecting.

definitive camera price guide 4 April 2005
By G. Rhodes - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is the best all in one camera identification and price guide, bar none. It has been expanded each new edition and this one is no exception. It has many new photos and a ton of improved ones as well. Well worth the money if you have a collection to sell or you want to start one. It will pay for itself for sure.

The ONE Book Every Camera Collector MUST Have! 24 April 2005
By R. L. Herron - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have owned the last three editions of Jim McKeown's classic price guide, and each is better than the last. It will not take much of a book to include anything Jim has left out! This is, without a doubt, THE reference book every true camera collector has on the shelf!

McKeown's Guide, an indispensible tool for camera collectors 15 July 2007
By James E. Maynard - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Anyone who is seriously interested in collecting antique cameras must have a copy of this Guide. It is indispensible to the auction arena, and particularly to EBay auction participation. The EBay camera world is frought with dangers and pitfalls when it comes to bidding and purchasing. It is important to know at least some fundamental levels of worth, and this book can provide you with this information. However, this "new" edition contains information that is at least 3-4 years old. So it is important to use judgement when bidding. Some camera prices have increased, but others have fallen over ranges given by the current Guide.
Another value of this book resides in the short histories it provides of the most important photographic manufacturers, such as Zeiss Ikon, Ihagee, Leica, and Kodak. Byond this, it is simply a great pleasure to leaf through at leisure all of the pictures of the multiplicity of cameras that have been produced over the last 150 years.

Find out what you didn't know you didn't know! 11 April 2007
By Paul M. Provencher - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
No, that's not a typo - no matter how astute a camera collector or photographer you may be, until you look through this book you just don't know what you don't know!

I found the organization of the book a bit obscure at first (it is alphabetical by manufacturer and then within that roughly alphabetical by model, which can be tricky if you don't know the manufacturer).

Soon enough I was able to find most any camera I set out to identify and discovered in the process a number of other interesting cameras that I didn't know existed, and tons of trivia about cameras that I do know.

While it is difficult to produce a truly comprehensive guide about something as exhaustive as camera gear, this book does fairly well though it is at times really heavy on some areas (like Leica for example...) and conspicuously light in others (like Asahi Pentax...).

Notwithstanding all that, it is a terrific book to curl up next to the fire with and while away a few hours. That is of course if you have strong arms or a book stand!

There's no better! 3 July 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
There is no better source of information about older cameras. With hundreds (thousands?) of photos and excellent descriptions, if you collect, buy or are just interested in cameras you can't go wrong.
