Preview: Photographica Camera Fair

1505_cameras.jpg PowerShot, Finepix and Digital Rebel: since when were cameras named like comic book characters? They're three names unlikely to be uttered at this Sunday's Camera Collectors fair. Organised by the Photographic Collectors Club of Great Britain, the fair brings together classic models from manufacturers such as Leica, brass and mahogany field cameras, bellows, filters, daguerrotypes, photography books, and more: in short, a panoply of the frozen image and the equipment behind it. Forget discussions about digital zoom and CCDs, and immerse yourself in a time before camera names sounded like dubiously-skilled superheros.
Photographica 2009, Sunday 17th May, 10am-4.30pm, Royal Horticultural Society's Lindley Hall, SW1P 2PB (map). Entry costs £5. (Image / Liam Oliver Newton Craik-Horan)
