Polaroid Guide

£7.99

Product description

This softcover book is in good condition overall. The cover of the book has some noticeable creasing and minor wear throughout. Inside, the pages of the book are in very good condition, but a section of pages do have an issue of a fold on the bottom corner.

'This is a Camera Guide. It deals with one make of camera, but it is not boosting it. The Camera Guide is a Focal Press Publication. It is not sponsored or censored by manufacturers, or dependent on them in any way. The Camera Guide is as scrupulous in fully describing the camera and advising on its use as the very best type of manufacturer's book of instructions. It is, however, more critical than they could be. No Camera Guide will attempt to camouflage the limitations of a camera or make efforts to sell an endless chain of accessories. It is straightforward, practical and devoted to the questions of how to take the best photographs with a particular camera, rather than to praise of it. The Camera Guide is compiled by an author who has had long experience in handling the equipment in question. It represents at the same time the gist of all available literature collected by the Focal Press Circle of Photographers and filtered through their considered judgement.'
