We hate broken links so if we have any
we would be very grateful if someone would tell
us (we do check them ourselves as well).
If your site is here, please tell
if you move.
If you have a site which may be of interest to our
visitors, please tell
Note: to be included in this list Stephanie must have
found some historical information.
Promotion of new items is not enough, which is why
some of the biggest and best names in cameras are not
has excellent historical pages with some information about Jacques
Bogopolsky as well as plenty of Alpa facts.
has a list of Argus cameras, with dates of manufacture and serial
number ranges. There is also a short company history and some camera
repairers in the U.S.A. I did not see anything about the British company
called Argus, so perhaps the two companies share nothing but a name.
Seems to have been redesigned to be even more irritatng than before
but they do include a few American companies who offer repairs for
Argus (and other) cameras.
cameras - site includes some historical information. The site
is in French and my French is poor, to put it politely, but I think
the site is saying that the production and service of Beaulieu cameras,
except for those under guarantee, was stopped with effect from 1st
has to have the best historical site that I've seen so far. Every
Canon still camera is here (they say), arranged in a virtual museum.
Lots of pictures can make it slow to download, but if you have a Canon
to identify, this is the site to visit.
has a company history and the story of the links between the Hasselblad
camera and the NASA space missions.
has a lot of interesting information (I think) but I did not see much
of it as I got fed up with waiting for it to download (and this is
with broadband). Pages include information about George Eastman, technological
changes and major camera introduction dates and original prices.
has a lot of instruction books available as PDF files for download
and they also give comprehensive information regarding service/repair
facilities and costs.
has a very good collection of pictures and descriptions, covering
still and cine cameras, cine projectors, enlarging equipment . . .
everything they have made. I am not sure it is complete yet but it
is a very good attempt although the number of pictures means it can
be slow to download.
Processing Laboratories site has information
about Minox cameras, online instructions for a few of the cameras,
some excellent pictures, and an electronic version of the Riga
Minox Sales Booklet 1940, captured as scanned
images, so a bit slow to download, but well worth it. Only covers
the subminiature cameras.
