An accessible, stylish guide to still-usable vintage film cameras: which to buy, where to find them, and how to get the most out of them

Retro Cameras is a stylish guide for a generation that has moved from sharing vintage-filtered digital images via Instagram to embracing “old school” analog film photography and manual cameras of all formats. Quick reference shooting guides accompany each camera type, allowing even a camera phone junkie to quickly come to grips with shooting on film with a vintage camera. More than 100 camera models are included, from 35mm SLRs to Roll Film SLRs and Instant Cameras.

With over 400 specially commissioned photographs, an in-depth test drive of each camera type, practical advice on how to use and get the most out of each camera, buyers’ tips, and a dedicated glossary, Retro Cameras is a perfect reference for amateurs and professionals alike.
