Collecting old cameras

We do not live by milsurps alone. Photography and other hobbies as well as the mention of other collections would fit in this forum.

Collecting old cameras

Postby Niner » Wed May 30, 2018 10:53 am

In any kind of collecting collectors fall into categories according to their collecting fascination. Like people that concentrate on Mosin Nagants there are camera collectors that only collect Leicas, or Kodaks, or broader but still narrow categories like Twin Lens Reflex. Me... I'm pretty much a generalist and want to try out different cameras that are in some ways different from others I have tried in some way or other. My major limiting factor is that they must be relatively cheap.

Here's a story that is interesting to me. A guy who has collected all his life and is now selling off the oldest and most expensive and concentrating on the most pedestrian consumer cameras. He says he is going to write a book.
