Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Since its debut, McBroom's has become the bible of the used camera industry, and there's nary a dealer who doesn't own one. The book also found a following among camera buffs but was of little interest to the general public and therefore a marginal purchase for most libraries. The advent of online auction services like eBay, however, has completely changed that. If you're looking to sell grandpa's old Graflex or your dad's dusty Nikon, McBroom will tell you what to expect for it. This latest incarnation has been revised to update prices and now includes the latest tech developments, such as APS and digital cameras. This edition retains the standard format of an introduction to each camera brand, detailing the models and the years they were built followed by charts listing each body and lens and their estimated value based on physical condition. There is also information on accessories such as flashes and light meters. The book is capped off with a roster of manufacturers' URLs. Nobody thinking of buying or selling used camera gear either online or through a dealer should make a move without consulting McBroom's. Recommended for all public libraries.--Michael Rogers, "Library Journal" Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
