For anyone who has ever wondered how cameras work, this book is a
pleasant way to learn. It is generously endowed with enough
fundamentals to satisfy the technical specialist, without
intimidating the casual but curious amateur photographer. The
author has repaired, modified, and designed and analyzed cameras
for the past forty five years. With this background, he goes beyond
describing camera functions based on advertised data--instead the
book explains how various cameras really work. The book peels off
the cover panels and lets you look into the dark side of the lens.
The dozen or so formulas use simple math and the drawings alone are
worth the price of admission.
