In the 1920s, camera construction begins to evolve - wood starts to give way to metal bodied cameras. Industrialised mass production techniques reduced the cost of buying a camera so that the general public took to making snapshots. Camera styling becomes noticebly austere, black paint predominates, black leather bellows and black leatherette covering feature in many designs, brightened by nickel plated parts and occasionally chrome plating. Aluminium starts to feature in the construction of cameras as pressings or castings.
