Good overview of how a camera and lens systems works. The book discusses all formats of cameras and various lenses and filters in good detail. Very good explainations of exposure depth of field focus and all other general topics are discussed. This is a great reference for anyone who wants to know the workings of a camera. The book also convers what each format of camera can do. It outlines techniques for achieving effects based on focal length, apeture and film speed. There is also a section of filters and what you can do for you. The book has a heavy bias towards black and white but most techniques are transferable to color. There is not alot about exposure control that is in the next book the The Negative. This book will help with camera care maintaince and help you decide what kind of equipmnet you will need as you advance as a photographer. The descriptions are never brand names but types of cameras and lenes. This book is very fundimental and therefore timeless.
