Format: Hardcover
This is a beatufully written, photographed and produced book, but necessarily rather general. The photography is unusual in getting very close to subject, and this works well. For anybody interested in the history of photographic equipment this book is highly recommended.

Generally very accurate, informative and engagingly written this is a great basic book on the subject. The illustrations are excellent and every era is covered except digital (ignore the dust jacket!). A good buy although the superb Brian Coe book is far more comprehensive but illustrated in line drawings.
