|Well another grandiose title
for a subject that will be presented here in greatly simplified form. All
cameras basically consist of a light tight box with light sensitive material
at one end and a lens at the opposite end, well okay not pin hole cameras - they do without the lens.
Within that basic concept are a number of ways of achieving the same end,
below are what I consider to be the six principle forms of camera in common
circulation. Although bear in mind that a considerable degree of cross fertilization
exists between these types, eg. bellows
cameras fitted with rangefinders.
