John's Cameras. A collection of interesting and old film cameras.

By John Margettss
These are descriptions of my growing collection of old film cameras together with my experience of using them. The descriptions are entirely based on a particular camera that I have before me.

It is my aim to help people to understand their old cameras and to help them use them.
