My Photo Library
Collecting cameras leads to the accumulation of
all kinds of printed material. There are
instruction books, advertisements,
registration forms, boxes, even
original bills of sale. And
thenof course there are
the books about
photography. You don’t
realize it as it is
happening but soon
you are deluged with this
stuff. And it is good stuff, to be
sure, but what do you do with it?
Well, you create a library.
And that is what this section of The Collection
is all about. Here I am posting manuals and
advertisements that I have come across. I try to
make the scans the best possible but some are a
little sketchy. The photography books are subject to
copyright and I cannot reproduce them. However, in The
Bibliography I list the volumes I have in my library and
comment on them. For the instruction manuals, brochures and advertisements I have no copyright but the owners, Canon, Kodak and so on, I assume, will not object to my reproductions here. I am advancing awareness of their products. But remember, I have no rights in this material and cannot pass any rights along to you. It is offered for your own use and information. After that, you are on your own.
This is a growing collection and far from complete. In fact, it will never be complete. There will always be more. As I post new material I try to keep the Index up to date and if you are searching for something in particular you should start there. To navigate this library use the Menu on the right hand side of the page.
In the event you take material from here and use it on your own web site I would appreciate a link back to this site. Or, even better, just link to it and not actually download it to your own website.
Finally, if you have some material, a manual or an ad, scan it and send it to me and I will include it here with credit to you. Or send me the material and I will scan it and return it. Again, you will be credited with it and I am happy to link back to you.
I am not in any way connected to or supported by Canon and I have no rights to any of their trade marks. I chose their camera line both for my personal photography and to collect for reasons lost to memory. I have been happy with Canon and have been totally impressed with the quality of their equipment. Other manufacturers make some excellent camera gear as well and nothing I say here is to disparage their offerings. Eventually I may add other brands to my range of collecting interest but that is for another day (and a bigger house).
