From the 1970s to the end of the 20th Century, 35mm rules the roost, 120 is now solely used for professional work. All black cameras make their appearance throughout the 1980s again, but the classic black body with chrome plated top housing proves a difficult styling cue to resist, and it persisted doggedly. Plastic now often forms major assemblies of even some good quality cameras. Fully automatic exposure features increasingly throughout the 80s, along with auto film loading, rewinding and Autofocus. 35mm SLRs take on the "compact" size. Excellent equipment becomes progressively more affordable whilst even some cheap cameras produce commendable results in sympathetic hands. The manufacturing centre has undergone a seismic shift towards Japan and caters to all segments of the market. This concludes the area of interest for the LICM as the end of the 20th century is marked by a profound shift to digital photography.
