For many photography enthusiasts, camera collecting is as much a part of their hobby as the taking of photographs. Sites in this section are less concerned with technical information about cameras, and more concerned with general information for and about camera collectors, including displays of private collections, collectors' organizations, and advice on building collections. Collecting Cameras Equipment and Services Photography Arts.
The hobby of collecting includes seeking, locating, acquiring, organizing, cataloging, displaying, storing, and maintaining whatever items are of interest to the individual collector. (wikipedia)
- Wikipedia: The hobby of collecting includes seeking, locating, acquiring, organizing, cataloging, displaying, storing, and maintaining items that are of interest to an individual collector. Collections differ in a wide variety of respects, most obviously in the nature and scope of the objects contained, but also in purpose, presentation, and so forth. The scope of collecting is unlimited, as expressed in the old adage, "If something exists, somebody somewhere collects them."
