You probably know the website, but what you may not know is that it is continuously improving: Sylvain Halgand’s collection-appareils.fr is fed about twice a year by volunteers who add their own cameras to those already listed. By the end of february 2017, there will be 11466 cameras registered and thoroughly documented. This year’s first shot of new content added more that 100 new cameras to the list!
You can browse all the new releases on the dedicated page.
I myself added two of mine: a Fujica 35-ML F/2 and a nice travel chamber Photo-Hall Perfect Pliant n°9.
I don’t know whether I’ll be able to go myself, but the association linked to the site Collection-Appareils organises an annual event in Glisy, near Amiens in France, where you’ll find a great second-hand market of cameras and photographs. Located in the north of France, its less than a two-hour ride from Calais once you’ve crossed the Channel. This year event will take place on March 4th, 2017.
