ANTIQUE & 19TH CENTURY CAMERAS

CINEMATOGRAPHICA CINE CAMERA COLLECTING
 
Collecting vintage movie equipment is a neglected area amongst those interested in movies, photographica and memorabilia. It appears that amongst the millions of movie fans few are interested in the equipment with which in former days the magic of the screen was created.
Older people will still remember the thrill of seeing movies projected in their small local cinemas often filled with the foul smell of smoke and beer.
CLASSIC CAMERA COLLECTORS SITE
 
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: I hope you will find something of interest in my classic camera collection. The collection comprises mainly of cameras of German manufacture but also includes several from other countries. The cameras are a mix of 35 mm and medium format types both rigid and folding, and date from pre 1920 until the 60's.

DIGITAIL PHOTOGRAPHY REVIEW
 
Great site for reviews and news about digital cameras

Professor Hellmuth is not paid by any camera manufacturer nor do we get kick-backs from camera stores. Yes, naturally we have sponsors, they provide project funding and occasional equipment, but we do not ask for, nor do we accept, sales commissions. We do not feed our readers PR releases from the camera manufacturers either.

Instead we point out the fallacies, mis-information, and exaggerations, in these PR releases. We also do research before we write our reviews, as you would expect of an applied-science institute. Plus we are photographers ourselves. All this is how we distinguish ourselves from slick pseudo-reviews that smoother us all with endless hype on the Internet.
