Whether as a primer or a reference manual, this is the perfect book to (re)kindle your love of analogue photography.

You may have found an old Konica at the thrift store or inherited a Leica, or you may be one of the many younger photographers who are being drawn to analogue for the first time, as a way to enrich and expand their practice. In either case, this book provides all the information needed to help you understand your camera and get out and start using it.

The fundamental technical sides of both cameras and photography are covered. There are, however, no tips on how to take ‘better’ photos, no sections on lines and shapes, silhouettes, texture or composition. This is purely a technical manual: once you have mastered the mechanics of photography, you will have total creative control over your camera, a tool for taking photos exactly as you want them.

"This is a book about the beauty of analogue photography, and a celebration of all these breathtaking magical cameras. It will connect these devices with a new generation of photographers, helping them not only to fall in love with them but also start using them again, with passion"
- Florian Kaps, founder of Impossible Project and Supersense

A very good place to start

I really enjoy this book even if it can be a bit dry. Every thing you need to know is in this book. And it is easy to navigate, thanks to the index. I have read it cover to cover but it will stay in my photo bag for easy reference.

Great book for all skill levels

Highly recommend for any beginner and also great for the more experienced shooter. All round just a great book to own and at a great price!

must have book

excellent read ,having recently started shooting film again after many years , this has given me a lot of information that i had forgotten and also some i did not know.
This book can be useful for anyone taking up photography for the first time or has been shooting for many years.

Fab book

Really nicely done and put together, but like it says it's not a book to make you a better analogue photographer but if with this book you understand your camera, then you will become one!
