ANTIQUE AND CLASSIC CAMERAS,
HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY
This web site is devoted to the study, collecting, and preservation of antique and classic cameras, vintage photographs, and the history of photography. As more and more people enter this fascinating field, the demand for better information, resources, and appraisal services is also increasing. To meet that demand, the International Photographic Historical Organization (InPHO) was established to provide a resource center offering a wide range of free services to interested individuals and groups. Not just another camera collectors club or moderated newsgroup, InPHO is your best first source for learning about the evolution of the art, science, and technology of photography, as well as practical information on the care, acquisition, and appraisal of vintage photographica.
In the meantime --
-- the site is changing almost everyday with new pages and features, but if you would like to see our expanding table of contents, currently offering a selection of superb articles on antique and classic cameras, please go to:
And we are proud to host --
-- the public web pages of the Internet Directory of Camera Collectors (IDCC), a moderated e-mail forum for people interested in collecting and using antique and vintage cameras. New participants are always welcome!
