I discovered this book by John Sypal during one of my regular visits to Zoingimage in Brighton where they had the book for sale.
I was instantly drawn to the front cover and could tell it would be about film cameras. I also love Tokyo which I visited a couple of years ago as I have several friends who live there (one of them owns a really nice bar called the Ipcress Lounge).
I purchased the book and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. Apart from the introduction, the book is made up of pictures of vintage cameras that people had in Japan. The book also makes a note of the camera the person is holding which I found to be really helpful.
There are so many amazing cameras in this book from the Leica’s to the Nikons, Pentax etc.
As a newbie to film photography I really did enjoy looking at all the different cameras and learning what they were.
One of my favourite looking cameras in the book was the Olympus Pen FT camera.
