Visitors, who have read the introduction, will be surprised to see that I used the word "collection" to refer to my assembly of photographic items. There is a simple pragmatic reason for me doing this (despite of what I wrote in that introduction); not wanting to anger the Google gods, I am trying to make this page easier to index and refer to, so that it may stand a better chance at being included in relevant search queries.
Camera collections can be presented in several different ways. At this stage, I concentrate on describing my cameras, lenses, etc. in terms of their physical properties and how they work, placing far less emphasis on their role in photographic history and giving almost no information on the various versions or types ever manufactured. Reason: I haven't done much research in this area yet, and I'm not in the business of copying and pasting information from other people's work.
I also endeavour to take high quality pictures of these cameras from various angles, so that anyone not familiar with them can get a really good idea of what they look like. Interesting features, important controls will be shown close-up.
Although most of my cameras are not rare items, they will become increasingly so in decades to come. So, I guess, my overall objective is to document - not just for now, but also for the future. With time, I plan to make this material available in other forms, too. The WEB is an obvious start. One of the great advantages of electronic media is that it is easy to expand, add-to as work progresses. And that is an important consideration right now.
Note: all images are of items I had in my hand, and the descriptions are based on my personal experience. Please respect copyright.
