Once upon a time…
A beginning for a collection a German, Glunz (Glunz, Hannover, Germany) plate camera and a Justophot “exposure meter”.
Today the number is over 200 old cameras, their specifications, pictures and descriptions.
Several photography related articles and links to the helpful and interesting sites opens up an entertaining and rewarding trip to the world of the photography before bits and bytes.
This collection or may I call it a Vintage Camera Museum consists of various camera types and camera brands. Most of them, are not so called “collectibles” but I hope that on some page you will find the information that you are looking for.
Mike’s Praktica Collection
The first Praktica was built in 1949 by the Company “Mechanik Kamera Werkstätten VEB Niedersedlitz” which was founded as “Kamera-Werkstätten Guthe & Thorsch GmbH” 1919 by Benno Thorsch and Paul Guthe in Dresden.
In 1989 the Berlin wall was down; the GDR was no more; and a great name was soon fade into history. The famous Pentacon factory in Dresden was shortly closed and with it, unless something unexpected happens, the end of the Praktica SLR.
The following pages contain some information about the history of the Praktica cameras as well as the history of Pentacon Dresden the company which has designed the Praktica SLR ‘s for 31 years. At the end of this time, on October 2, 1990, Pentacon Dresden was the largest and famous German camera producer. The market share of Pentacon was at this time 5% in Germany, 12% in France, 24% in United Kingdom and 30% in the Netherlands (Blumtritt).
My collection contains today 324 different cameras such as Praktica cameras as well as their precursors.
