From Colin Harding's highly successful "Classic Cameras" feature, which runs regularly in Black and White Photography magazine, comes a superb showcase of photographic equipment. These 75 cameras, drawn from the National Media Museum in Bradford, England, appear in chronological order, with a chapter for every era and a double-page spread devoted to each camera. They range from old, rare, sophisticated and expensive models to some that are relatively common and simple, but still influential, like the Kodak Instamatic. Each spread has a large and impressive shot of the highlighted camera, smaller pictures of any variants, historical insight into the camera's development, and, when appropriate, a short biography and photo of the inventor.
