What this blog is about.

This blog is really a sequence of descriptions of my collection of old camera. I do not research the cameras for this blog - I describe a real camera that is sitting in front of me, when it is not actually in my hands. Where my descriptions vary from information to be found on the Interweb - that information is clearly not complete (or wrong!). It is also worth knowing that a lot of people do research on-line for their web pages and end up repeating other peoples' mistakes. That is why I decided to restrict my self to describing real cameras in my possession only. Any mistakes here are mine and unique!

The range of cameras I have described here is restricted by the number of cameras I can afford to buy. I buy as many as I can get away with but my budget only stretches to around one camera each month.

If any one has old cameras that they would like to write an article on - if they can stick to the format I have established here - I would love to include them in my blog. In particular, I would like addendums from people who have variations on the camera models I have already described - again, sticking to the format I have established.  I can be contacted at
