A little background information on the
administrator of this website, Leon Pomerantz

 

Thank you for visiting this website which has been updated with new listings and categories. Addtional items will be posted over time.

Traditional photographic equipment is gradually fading from memory and being replaced by digital electronic appliances that in some cases don't even resemble the precision instruments of the recent past.

This website will attempt to keep the ties to the old cameras we have known and loved and provide information on their maintenance and repair. More categories will be added for instruction manuals, vintage advertising, historic literature, equipment, books, magazines and images. In some cases, non-photographic categories may also be listed.

For over fifty years I have devoted myself to traditional photography starting out as a kid of 14 with my Aires Viscount 35mm; working my way up to a career in retail sales at top camera stores in New York City. As a sales & marketing representative for renowned photographic firms including Linhof, Sinar, Rolleiflex, Ricoh, Fujinon, Elmo, Ilford and Agfa, I have experienced the photographic industry in its prime.

As a photographer, i worked professionally in the field of photojournalism, nature, landscape and glamour photography.

For a number of years I attended and promoted photographic equipment camera shows and swap meets meeting thousands of my fellow photo equipment enthusiasts from all over the U.S. and internationally. Some of you have been regular clients for years.

For the last 15 years I have been selling on ebay but have recently decided to cut my ties and devote my time and energy to this website.

It is my intention to supplement the listings with equipment blogs that would interest photographers, collectors and beginners alike.

My expertise covers most photographic equipment including large and medium format, 35mm rangefinder and SLR cameras, vintage lenses, still and movie projection equipment, binoculars and more.

I am available on a consultant basis and by appointment (for a fee) --can provide information and advice on complex equipment questions or issues.

Hopefully you will find this website to be both interesting and informative.
