5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid!
A very good overview of, if not most but quite a few, of cameras that have had an importance during the years they have been produced, from the start until today. Good, relevant texts and excellent photographs taken in a way that you get a very good impression of the camera and its functions. At least for me being a photographer myself, but it was so brilliant my son...

1.0 out of 5 stars Camera: A History - but little information
Given the resources of the Eastman House Camera Collection and the knowledge of the author - Todd Gustavson - what is presented is a very lightweight book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Camera: A History - but little information, 2 Jan 2010
This review is from: Camera (Hardcover)
Given the resources of the Eastman House Camera Collection and the knowledge of the author - Todd Gustavson - what is presented is a very lightweight book. It is full of very nice pictures some, covering the early equipment, not published elsewhere but there is little text other than the picture captions and what text there is provides no new information or detail. The book lacks narrative and a sense of purpose, the earlier 'A Century of Cameras' by Eaton Lothrop covers much the same ground but in much more depth and detail. Inevitably the book is heavy on Kodak cameras and references to Mr. Eastman there is also an over large section on modern cameras.
