Description

A generation who have come of age sharing vintage-filtered images via Instagram, developing an obsession with photography, are now seeking the authentic, hands-on, creative buzz that exists outside of the digital world - embracing `old school' analogue film photography and `full manual' cameras of all formats.

Retro Cameras is a stylish, design-led guide to classic and retro cameras aimed at those who want to discover the world of analogue photography. It includes more than 100 camera models, from the easily affordable to the highly collectible, in 13 formats: 35mm SLRs; 35mm Rangefinders; 35mm Viewfinder Cameras; Roll Film SLRs; Sheet and Roll Film Folding Cameras; Twin Lens Reflexes; Instamatics; Stereo Cameras; Panoramic and Wide-angle Cameras; Miniature Cameras and Instant Cameras. Supplementing an already comprehensive resource are quick reference shooting guides for each format, as well as a list of retro camera accessories.

With over 400 specially commissioned photographs, practical advice on how to use and get the most out of each camera, buyers' tips and a dedicated glossary, Retro Cameras is a perfect reference for young photographers who want to get creative with analogue photography, while also offering authoritative guidance for more experienced collectors and enthusiasts.
