Corfield Cameras

£9.99

Product description

In the 1950s, when most British camera manufacturers seemed to content to produce outdated designs or very expensive models, K.G. Corfield, Ltd, bucked the trend. Their range of Periflex 35mm cameras and related equipment brought a breath of fresh air to the market, and challenged the strong German competition. Within a few years the business was transformed from a cottage industry into Britain's most modern camera manufacturing plant. The fascinating history of this company and its products is based on over thirty years of research, plus interviews with the former management and employees. For collectors and photographic historians there's a section which provides full technical details of all Corfield products, together with advise on their purchase and restoration.

The Book Contains over 150 illustrations

*Clean and in very good condition*
