5.0 out of 5 stars The textbook on this subject !
This is the book to have as a guide, albeit slightly out of date where many of the values are concerned, it is highly recomended reading and to have on your book shelf as a reference book on this subject.

3.0 out of 5 stars This book should be bigger.
The book is broad is scope but short on detail. I had already found much more information with a quick web search than can be found here. There are for example, no model number listings for Zeiss Ikonta folders. The index also contains reference errors. There is useful information in here, but the volume needs to be a LOT BIGGER I think, especially to justify this price...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic for collectors, 21 Sep 2013

This review is from: The Hove International Blue Book: Price Guide and Handbook for Collectable Cameras (14th Edition) (Paperback)
Great book to have as reference of collectable cameras. Orientation of prices is also included, accurate explanations about the different models but the pictures are not good, they are in black and white. I recommed this book highly.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Useful Guide, 22 April 2012
This review is from: The Hove International Blue Book: Price Guide and Handbook for Collectable Cameras (14th Edition) (Paperback)
The prices in this book are invaribly always a little out of date and it is short on detail on individual models but nevertheless it remains a useful basic guide for the majority of users .

4.0 out of 5 stars Hove camera Collectors' Blue Book Guide, 14th Edn., 18 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hove International Blue Book: Price Guide and Handbook for Collectable Cameras (14th Edition) (Paperback)
A pity that the Publishers don't update this Collectors' guide more often. This is a must-have tool for any collector who doesn't get to Camera Collectors' Shows on a frequent basis. And with Internet Trading these days, a collector doesn't need to visit any of the shows and auctions in person, - if he/she has an annually-updated Guide like this on the bookshelf.

This review is from: The Hove International Blue Book: Price Guide and Handbook for Collectable Cameras (14th Edition) (Paperback)
The ideal book for myself as I have been left a lot of old cameras. Gives me a rough idea of their value.

This review is from: The Hove International Blue Book: Price Guide and Handbook for Collectable Cameras (14th Edition) (Paperback)
An excellent book but a shame it doesn't give rough prices next to the cameras. Instead you have to keep flicking to another page to get a rough idea.
