This is a pretty good introductory book to film and digital photography. I enjoyed it, although I found most of the material a bit remedial for my level. There is a pretty significant factual error in this book, however. In the early chapters the authors state that it was Kodak that developed inexpensive 35mm cameras in the 1930s that were alternatives to the expensive 35mm pioneer Leica, and that Kodak is responsible for largely contributing to the format's popularity. The truth of the matter is that it was the Argus Camera, initially the Model A, then the Model C that made 35 mm photography accessible to the masses in America, not Kodak.Was this review helpful?
