Since the invention of the photographic process in the 1830s, cameras have been among the most sought-after of collectors' items. The advent of digital photography in the 1990s brought a new focus for collectors. Many of those early cameras were truly novel and desirable. In 2020, during the coronavirus, I began acquiring and preserving models produced up to the year 2000, the period of experimentation and innovation. I hope you enjoy viewing these examples as much as I enjoy collecting them.
