APUG.ORG is an international community of like minded individuals devoted to traditional (non-digital) photographic processes. We are an active photographic community; our forums contain a highly detailed archive of traditional and historic photographic processes. We'd like to thank all of the photographers out there who have given us the encouragement to see this concept through.


This site is totally non-profit. We ask for nothing but we would appreciate your sharing any knowledge/photos/tech info you may have, not only on the cameras presented here but on any you may think we might be interested in. Both of us, of course, have other old cameras not displayed.
A collection of articles and resources about photography


A collection of early camera's and phtotographic equipment from 1850 to 1950.

The collection includes examples of most types of camera from the Daguerreotype to the start of electronics but concentrates on the heyday of British camera making - the period of hand-made brass and mahogany cameras from the likes of Hare and Meagher and the small workshops of Adams, Newman & Guardia and others.
