A wide field for all collectors are brochures that were gladly distributed by the manufacturing companies. Here is a small selection.
Taking pictures with the Mamiya M 645. Animal fun!
A well done model catalog from 1953 when there was still a market for bellows cameras.
In the early 1960s, the distribution of roles was still simple:
„He“ takes pictures and „She“ is happy.
Because I liked the brochure so much, I bought the F 70 in 1996
At Voigtländer, too, photography was a male thing.
Very informative publication
In 1935, girls were also allowed to operate a camera at Zeiss Ikon.
