The Camera Collection

I enjoy collecting and using cameras – I have a few that are considered to be ‘classic’ but I’ve always been interested in unusual designs rather than by marques.
Subminiature and half frame are particular favourites for me – it’s amazing how good the quality is with some of these cameras. Many cameras made in the 1950s and 60s were overlooked becasue at that time the film emulsion was so grainy that it was easy to blame the camera on poor quality. With modern emulsions you can really see just how good some half frames (in particular) really are.
